Update: 8/09 Just made 4 batches (24 - 1/2 pints); using a different combination of peppers for each batch Our favorite is a combination of jalapenos and Hatch chilis. Thanks again for posting the recipe. Wow! That as so easy, it's only 9 a.m. and they're in the jars cooling. This was my first time preserving anything! I used jalapenos and poblanos, thought I'd keep it down for my first try! Thanks for sharing.

I made two batches of jelly ... the first one was exact on the ingredients (makes a mild jelly). Since the first batch was a little mild for our taste I decided to "step it up" a notch on the second batch: ingredients changed to 1 cup of jalapenos and 3 habaneros (makes a medium/hot jelly). On both batches all seeds were removed from all peppers; Step 4 boiling time was increased to 5 minutes and Steps 5, 6, 10 & 11 were omitted. Great thing about this jelly is that it's easy and can be adapted to your own heat index. Thanks for a great recipe, Jellyqueen!

Jellyqueen, thanks for saving me! I tried jalapeno jelly two years ago, and it never jelled. We used powdered fruit pectin, and maybe that was part of the problem. This jelled quickly and was a beautiful color. We did not use a sieve only because we like the little extra chunks and feel it adds to the texture and beauty of the jelly. We also found out that manufacturers of the liquid fruit pectin recommmend that you NOT double or triple the recipe. We did anyway with good results. This made a great jalapeno jelly with jalapenos, haberneros, serranos, and green pepper. We love it and will make it yearly! Great recipe!

This was my first attempt at making jelly . I found this recipe so simple and easy to follow. My sister and I had a little contest to see who had the better recipe. She used her recipe and I used this one. I had great results and we decided that my jelly was far superior to her recipe. She will be using this recipe from now on. I am looking forward to making lots more jelly. Thankyou for a great recipe!

I am reviewing this after my third batch. My first batch was too mild for my taste, the second batch still wasn't hot enough, THIS batch is fabulously hot. I used one red bell pepper, three habaneros, 3 paper lanterns and four cherry bombs. My tongue is still burning!!! I love it! Thank you for the easy recipe!
