This is a very lovely, very sophisticated jelly to have on hand for the holidays, as well as for unexpected visitors. Enjoy this with crackers and soft cream cheese.

DO NOT double this recipe!! I was making it for gifts for about twelve people and so I doubled the ingredients. Big mistake I found out after my jelly did not set that you are never supposed to double a jelly or jam recipe. I hope this will save another first time jelly maker from making this mistake.

Not sure why but my jelly didn't set well. Stayed pretty runny. not sure what I did wrong I followed the recipe exactly. Still tasted good though. Just wasn't something I wanted to give away as gifts -- who wants runny jelly? Read More

HOT...SWEET...my jelly set up nice and quick. Try boiling ingredients on medium heat for 10 minutes add pectin and boil for 5 minutes. Also I used fresh jalapenos. 1 1/2 pounds. Don't forget the gloves and glasses. Read More

Great recipe. I substituted apple cider vinegar for white which gave it a nice flavor. I also used one green one yellow and one orange pepper to vary up the colors a bit and left out the green food coloring (turned out a clear-yellowish color). I think the key to getting the jelly to set is to load your diced peppers into a towel and squeeze out all the excess liquid. Read More

The orginal recipe is very tasty and is a good base to experiment. Any true "pepper-head" will want to upgrade to serrano peppers (or hotter) and increase the cayenne (I went to 1.5 tbs). For a sweeter Jelly stir in an additional cup of sugar before the pectin. One additional tip don't use cheap vinegar final taste is compromised. Read More

Very good taste! It was enough for eight 250ml jars. For all you cooks north of the border: 6 fluid ounces liquid pectin translates to 170 ml (two packages at 85 ml). Read More

Wonderful Recipe! This is sooo easy to make and the flavor is WONDERFUL!! I am asked repeatedly for this recipe. My entire family enjoys it and I have to make it year round. Delicious with cream cheese and tortilla chips or crackers. I use my Quisinart to mince/mix the peppers before adding them to the saucepan.Both green & red bell peppers make an attractive jelly. I can make this in 30 minutes or less.Thank you Brenda! Read More

I love the flavor of this jelly. Although I have tried four different times to make it and it will not set up. I have followed the directions to the "T" and nothing. It makes a good sauce. Read More
