Directions

  1. Combine the bell peppers, chile peppers, vinegar, sugar, and cayenne pepper in a large pot. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. When the mixture comes to a rolling boil that cannot be stirred down, stir in the pectin. Cook for 5 more minutes at a boil, then remove from the heat. Stir in the green food coloring, if desired.
  2. Ladle jelly into hot sterile jars leaving 1/4 inch headspace. Process jars in a boiling water bath for 5 to 10 minutes to ensure a good seal.

I have been making this Jelly for about 10 years. I have used the canned jalapenos or 4 fresh jalapenos with seeds for heat. If using fresh make sure you turn the jars so it doesnt all sit at the bottom. Always comes out great!!!

This is great! I buy ready made Jalapeno Jelly and it is EXPENSIVE! Now I make my own and it is easy and good. I made it exactly as written. Eat it on a plain old soda cracker with a tiny dab of creamcheese...Heaven! Then I made super hot jelly with red bell peppers and habanero chilies...WOW! Thank you for sharing this recipe.
