This recipe works very well as an alternative dip for corn tortilla chips in place of sour cream based or cheese dips. For a quick off the shelf version, melt three tablespoons of raspberry jelly in the microwave for one minute, and add one tablespoon ( more of less depending on taste ) of jalapeno salsa.
I love this recipe. I have made it many times. I can it and give it out for gifts at Christmas. I use red jalapeno's and red bell pepper and I don't strain this jelly. It looks great and has a good kick to it.
I wasn't sure if I was to use liquid or powder pectin. Only had outdated liquid pectin and used whole pouch and it did not set but being one not to waste and the flavors were outstanding I used as a sauce that I added meatballs to and heated thru. Will get in touch for help on this one - would love to try again.
I made this last year and tried it a little later - looked lovely and tasted ok. But I opened a jar last week and it really picked up the flavor of the peppers and tastes great. Won blue ribbon at the county fair this year!
Family & Friends love this - i serve on a block of Cream Cheese with crackers. It's always the first to disappear. I always have too many jalapenos from the garden and I can't seem to make enough of this. I don't strain either. Wonderful!!
Made this in 2006. Gave as Christmas gifts. Grandchildren have requested their own loaf of bread,#72180, which I use the bread machine to mix and proof, but put in 2 one lb loaf pans and bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes. and 8 oz bottle of this Jelly. and 8 oz of cream cheese. This is their favorite jelly and way to eat it. Too many grandchildren to make for Christmas so they get it for their birthdays instead. Did not strain the peppers, Also I have found I prefer 1 cup of vinegar for the recipe. It has jelled wonderfully for me.
I couldn't find a recipe for jalapeno blueberry jam and someone suggested this one. I mashed the blueberries and it was wonderful. I didn't strain it though because everyone said they wanted the peppers in there. I'll make this again next year in blueberry season. Thanks for a great recipe. — Aug 27, 2005, — Aug 29, 2005
