Hot Pepper Jelly

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Bergy

This recipe is from "Company's Coming" Canning book. It is an easy excellent recipe. I double the jalapeno asked for and I like to leave wee flakes of peppers floating in the jelly. If I use red peppers I use a drop of red food dye and if green well, what else, green
