This recipe is delicious. It calls for bottle pectin, I used one pouch certo liquid pectin. As suggested, I also added 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, you could use more. This has become my favorite for pepper jelly and it's so easy. For some reason, I got more jars than the recipe called for. A bonus.

This could have been easy but I couldn't find liquid pectin.. Found powdered pectin eventually...Absolutely no idea of the ratio, never having used pectin before... First batch runny,, Added more pectin,,, honey consistency,,, final attempt, more pectin and it set within a couple of hours... It is divine.. I can't stop eating it... I have made several jars for xmas gifts... I am sure they won't be disappointed with the final result. i had it with cream cheese... Yummmmmmm

This was awesome! The first time I made it I found that it was a little runny so I added another package of the liquid pectin and it turned out much better!! I use it as a sauce for pork chops and a dip for chicken figers. It goes great with cream cheese and crackers!! Thanks for posting. This is my new naughty, night time snack:)
