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:)

The recipe took a little more than 30 minutes to make. The quantity made was more than 6 small jars. The recipe should specify that the jar size was 250 ml. This recipe made 12 125 ml jars which was a bit of a surprise in needing to have the correct number of jars ready.

I love pepper jelly and this recipe is wonderful; although I did adjust it just a bit. I used apple cider vinegar instead of regular vinegar and I used jalapenos instead of bell peppers. To grind them I placed them in a blender--cut off the stems but kept the seeds--then followed the recipe. It gives a WONDERFUL mild spice with the sweet and everyone I've given a jar to LOVES it!!

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 jelly is wonderfulllll!! The only thing different that I did was to add 1 1/2 tsp of cayenne red pepper. Everyone that has tried it loves it.

Love this recipe as it is very similar to one I have from my grandmother. I often use both red and green sweet peppers finely chopped which makes it very festive in appearance. The one major difference between the two recipes is that mine uses Cider vinegar which really gives it a very unique taste.

This was very good, I made it to use in a baked brie and it was excellent. Great with cheese and on crackers. I only used 5 cups on sugar and next time I make it I'll try it with a little less. The sweet flavor of the peppers is plenty enough. Very very good. Make sure you do this in a pretty large pot though, I used my 6 quart pot and it wasn't enough when I boiled it the second time!

I can't believe how easy this was! I have always made fruit jams, but never tackled a pepper jelly. Am I ever glad I did!! This was a well written and easy to follow recipe that turned out wonderfully and has been getting rave reviews from my friends! Thanks for posting!
