Sweet Hot Jalapeno Jelly

"This stuff is divine. I've been making it for years as a dip for taquitos, flautas, and burritos. I also discovered that if I mix it with sour cream and hot sauce it becomes dipping sauce of the gods. This recipe uses red wine vinegar and lime juice, something I didn't find anywhere here. I pour this into plastic containers with lids and store it in the fridge. It does keep longer than 5 days."

  1. This recipe was my first attempt of making jelly and it was so easy! It is delicious, we use it to add flavor to a variety of recipes; stir fry, burgers, meatloaf, chicken....so yummy! You can double the recipe 1x and it will still fit in the blender, just be careful with it being so hot the top wants to blow off. It is a beautiful color when done! I have successfully canned this two times without a bath method, I do boil my lids to produce a good seal, do it immediately and within the hour you should hear your seals popping.
  2. Tasted just horrible.....sorry, I can't say that I liked this. I cook a lot, and it was just not up to my taste level.
