    gailanng's Note:

    This is one that will have your tastebuds begging for more. Note: When cutting hot peppers, disposable gloves are recommended and avoid touching your face. I saw the cutest idea. Place one very small whole pepper or one whole cranberry in each sterilized half-pint jar pouring over the liquid jelly and processing as recommended. This recipe halves easily. Also, I used cranberry juice cocktail in place of pure cranberry juice.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    1/2 pints

    Units: US | Metric

    • 3 cups cranberry juice (not light)
    • 1 cup chopped red jalapeno chile (with or without seeds for desired level of heat and can use green)
    • 1 cup white vinegar
    • 7 cups sugar
    • 2 (3 ounce) envelopes liquid fruit pectin
    • 10 drops red food coloring (optional)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place cranberry juice and jalapenos in a blender; cover and process until peppers are fully chopped. Strain through a seive pressing with the back of a spoon to remove all liquid. This can also be strained through a double-thickness of cheesecloth.
    2. 2
      Pour the strained juice into a Dutch oven; add vinegar. Stir in sugar. Bring to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly. Stir in pectin; return to a full rolling boil. Boil for 1 minute (no longer), stirring constantly.
    3. 3
      Remove from the heat; skim off foam with a metal spoon. Add food coloring if desired. Carefully ladle hot mixture into hot sterilized half-pint jars, leaving 1/4-in. headspace. Wipe rims and adjust lids. Process for 5 minutes in a boiling-water canner.

      Great recipe! I think I'd call it "Knock-Your-Socks-Off" jelly - WOW! I used almost 7 oz of red jalapenos (by weight) and they were small, so it took quite a few to fill 1 cup. Perhaps I should have seeded some of them, because this jelly is fire in a jar! What I did was puree the peppers with 1 cup of the cranberry juice, and then strained/pressed that through cheesecloth because I wanted a clear jelly with no "stuff" floating around this time. I didn't seed any of them, just tossed them into the blender after chopping off the stems. It's not so hot as to be inedible - we do like it - but I think the heat overpowered the cranberry flavors, which is kind of a bummer. It's a gorgeous color though, no food coloring needed (vile stuff anyways), and will be fantastic served with a little cream cheese to temper the heat, I think.
      I got 8 1/2 pint jars, and the 9th jar was about 3/4 full. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      I love it! I used more peppers than the recipe calls for and didn't strain the small pieces out. It wasn't very spicy. I will use more peppers for the next batch to try to heat it up a bit. It was a huge hit and we put it on everything! Love it
