Red and Green Christmas Jalapeno Jelly
November 15, 2010

Ok, I made this yesterday and followed the recipe almost exactly. I use about 1 cup of Jalapeno peppers and 1 cup of the Red Bell pepper. I left the seeds and veins in one of my 4 very large chilies. I timed each step perfectly. It never set up. So tonight I researched on how to fix unset jelly. I tried the easiest method which is to reboil no more than 4 cups at a time to 220 degrees. It was so thick as I poured it back into the cleaned jars and new lids I think this will set up. Only BIG problem is that my 6 half pint jars went down to 4 half pint jars when I was finished. How come so many people had no problem? It does taste fantastic though. I will try another batch this weekend but will boil after the pectin.
