  • Chop peppers fine mince in food processor.
  • Add to water, bring to boil, simmer 3 - 4 minutes.
  • Strain & set water aside, reserve about 1/4 of the peppers.
  • Combine the 2 3/4 C sugar, the reserved peppers, lime juice, wine vinegar, and enough of the pepper-water to equal 3 C (may add more water if needed to bring it to 3 C).
  • Combine the orange and lemon juices + their zest, 1 1/2 C Water, 5 C sugar, and the baking soda in a sauce pan and boil 5 minutes. (end result needs to be 3 C, so if needed, add water, here, as well).
  • Combine all, EXCEPT pectin.
  • Bring to rolling boil, stirring constantly.
  • Quickly add pectin, bring back to boil; skim any foam, turn off heat.
  • Fill jars leaving 1/4" headspace.
  • Wipe jar rims, adjust lids.
  • Process 5 minutes in boiling water canner.
  • Remove to cool.
  • Preparation time is a guess, but should give you plenty of wiggle room.
