    LifeIsGood's Note:

    I love pepper jelly. This recipe is a mix of sweet and heat. My favorite way to use it is: Pour some pepper jelly over a block of cream cheese and serve with crackers. You can't get any easier than that for an appetizer and it has always been a crowd pleaser. I like to have both items on hand, just in case I have unexpected guests. This recipe makes 3 cups of pepper jelly and it will keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 months. It also makes a great hostess or neighborly gift!

      I like extremes very much...padded bras, implants, botox, high heels, tanning booths, having multiple kids. I know, that last one...getting pregnant is just so over-hyped. Oh, and nectarous jelly made with blistering hot peppers. Made for A-NZ #51 recipe tag.

      My jelly turned out perfect! Made with a combination of Hatch and jalapeno peppers. Did not use any bell peppers as we like it hot! After cooking, I put the jelly in the three sterilized 1/2 pint jars. Placed the hot lids on them and turned upside down for about 10 minuters. Only took about two hours for them to set up. Thanks for sharing!

      Made as an appetizer for the football games today, and glad that I have some more leftover. Great GREAT dip. I took your advice with the cream cheese, and this worked out perfectly. I did cut back on the green pepper, and added a little more red pepper. Other than that recipe was made as posted. Served these with some ritz crackers, and some triscuits. Made for Recipe Swap #44..
