WOW!!!! This stuff is the bomb! So easy to make and you can make it as hot or mild as you like. My first batch is really tasty but I'm making the next batch a little hotter. I love that I can go right out to the garden and pick my peppers fresh. I'm making plenty of this to have on hand all winter. Thanks for posting this wonderful tasty treat andypandy.

I am addicted to this! I've made two batches and one turned out too hot, one too mild, so I'm trying to tweak the "heat." This is my first experience eating or making hot pepper jelly but wanted to use up some peppers from my garden. Now I am using the jelly for everything. Love the appetizer with cream cheese and jelly on crackers. Am smearing it on sandwiches and as a condiment for meat. Thanks andypandy!
