    This is a fantastic recipe! I don't even know for sure what kind of peppers I used... I think they were Hungarian Wax peppers but I bought them at a flea market and they had already turned bright, bright red. Anyway, I used a whole cup of these peppers, prepared as directed, and it turned out perfect! Had a bit of a kick but it really wasn't too hot at all! Will definitely make this one again!

    I used a combination of hot red peppers and jalapenos. Made it look very colorful. Would make a great stocking stuffer for Christmas. The flavor was wonderful! Sweet with some zip! Spread it on a Ritz with a glass of wine! Doesn't get much better than that!

    I added a cup and a half of mixed finely chopped hot peppers and used one envelope pectin. Also used 3-4 drops of green food coloring to make it prettier. Awesome jelly! Made 6 half pints plus 3 1/4 pint jars. One had to go in fridge right away so we could eat it! lol I hot bath the load for 5 minuetes just because I feel safer that way. Thanks for sharing this recipe Dancer. Can do hot Mexican Dance with this jelly! O'lay!
