Sweet Red Pepper Relish/Spread

"This is a favorite appetizer at every family function. It is especially well received with cocktails! It is similar to pepper jelly, but you do not need pectin. We usually serve it with crackers spread with a little cream cheese and a dollop of this sweet spread on top. This is great to have on hand when you have unexpected company or to give as a hostess gift. (yield is aproximate)"

    Wondered how many jalapeno you would add for some heat? Or would you use cayenne? I made this and it was delicious! Can't wait to can and give as gifts for Christmas.

    There is a reason folks have been making Pepper JELLY for over 100 years (well, in New Orleans they have); straining it eliminates the skin particles. This recipe has quite good flavor but those tiny pieces of pepper skin are annoying in that they stick to teeth. Two friends who sampled this looked like they had bleeding gums. Will NOT make again.

    Just made this for a group gathering I'm having in a day or so, & it is gonna be an OUTSTANDING spread for finger food! I've never before used the red bells for anything other than a fresh salad, but this recipe takes them to a whole other level!! Thanks for sharing it!
