“Enjoy this spicy treat on crackers with cream cheese. It also makes a festive holiday appetizer.” - by ranger1
Original recipe yields 6 (8 ounce) jars
- Sterilize 6 (8 ounce) canning jars and lids according to manufacturer's instructions. Heat water in a hot water canner.
- Place red bell peppers, green bell peppers, and jalapeno peppers in a large saucepan over high heat. Mix in vinegar and fruit pectin. Stirring constantly, bring mixture to a full rolling boil. Quickly stir in sugar. Return to full rolling boil, and boil exactly 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, and skim off any foam.
- Quickly ladle jelly into sterile jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of the tops. Cover with flat lids, and screw on bands tightly.
- Place jars in rack, and slowly lower jars into canner. The water should cover the jars completely, and should be hot but not boiling. Bring water to a boil, and process for 5 minutes.

"This is a great recipe, but after making it twice, have found it either has a typo or needs a slight modification. Both times I have made this jelly as the recipe states, it has not set up properly, ..." See moreas others have noted as well. The first time I put it all back into a pan, added 1 more box of powdered pectin, cooked and processed again as stated. After that it set up fine and was absolutely delicious. I just made it again (as written) and am again having the problem with it not setting up. I will add more pectin and re-process as I did before and hope for the same results. For all first time users of this recipe...this is a fantastic flavored jelly...if you want it sauce consistancy follow the recipe as written. If you want jelly consistancy use 2 packets of pectin. And one word of warning...this stuff is addicting!!! I have also played with the type of peppers...substituting hotter peppers for or adding to the jalepenos. My latest batch is actually a 4 pepper jelly...Red, Green, Jalepeno and a touch of hablano...mmmmmm!"
"I made 3 batches of this recipe and found that I had 21 jars of jelly that did not set. Very runny and a little disappointing. Tastes good, but a bit vinegary. Is there a way to re-cook it with mor..." See moree pectin to make it more jelly-like? I'd appreciate some feedback to save these batches! "
"This recipe is AWESOME! I read all of the reviews and used 3 of the suggestions: 1. I drained the peppers after chopping 2. I boiled 2 minutes instead of 1 and 3. I used the inversion method and ..." See moreit worked great but I had to run the jars under hot water to loosen them so they would settle into the bottom of the jar. I also used 2 cups of red bell peppers, 1 cup of green bell peppers and 1 cup of jalepenos. The jelly turned out GREAT (but could still be hotter for my taste) and it is the first jelly I have ever made. I used Sure-Jell fruit pectin if it helps."
