Very nice balance of flavors. Using 2 cans crushed pineapple, 2 cups each, yielded 1 1/2 quarts of product (about 20 4 ounce jars) and would not jell well after several days. Suspect pectin should be doubled if you use these items. I elected to remove habanero seeds and ribs prior to chopping them up. Very good on cream cheese, as a glaze for baked chicken or as a dipping sauce for fried coconut shrimp.

LOVE this jelly! I'd had something similar from the store and wanted to make my own. This turned out even better than the original! <br/>I used 1 pineapple plus to serving spoons of (drained) crushed pineapple. <br/>I also substituted apple cider vinegar for the white, and used 8 TBSP of Clear-jel for thickening. <br/>This was a big hit with my family!

Love making this. We use it on paratha bread and as a condiment with cheese. One note- you must use fresh pineapple. Something about canned pineapple makes it not gel. One pineapple will be enough to make the recipe.

I was so excited to make this jelly but I should have read the reviews before proceeding. I did add more habaneros and used less sugar so the taste is terrific. But it never jelled and is way too runny. Has anyone tried adding additional pectin after the fact? I'm tempted to open the jars and add another envelope - worth using another set of lids if it works.

I agree with the other reviews - it's very "loose" and doesn't seem like it's going to set up. I used a mix of fresh and canned pineapple because that's what I had. I am thinking maybe I should have doubled the pectin. Not sure how hot it is I am trying to wait a few days.

I tried this recipe and followed it to the letter and it has not jelled up. Its remains loose. I have tried other one's that have jelled but they called for to packets of pectin not one

I completely agree with Ssvinky's review. Awesome stuff, used additional pectin as he suggested but it still needed more. I used a combination of fresh and canned pineapple.

It was so spicy hot when I first made it that I thought it was ruined...after a couple days it mellowed and was terrific.

Be very careful with the habaneros.
