I blender the mangos and peppers in my vita mix (blender). Then added it to the pot with the vinegar and gradually added powdered pectin while stirring.(I didn't have the liquid pectin so it had to be made different as directed from Sharon `s). Brought it to a full rolling boil then added the sugar (I used 5 cup which was plenty) all at once stirring all the time and brought to a full rolling boil for one more minute. This made 6 cups of jelly. This would be wonderful on grilled chicken or pork. I wish I planned the picture better and made it with chicken. Thanks Sharon keep them coming.
