I made my first batch of this several months back and it is such a hit that I am about to make another batch and thought I would share this recipe here!! I’m sure you will enjoy it just as much as my friends and family do... Best way to eat this is ontop of a cracker with a bit of cream cheese and a dab of this jelly on top....

Hot Pepper Jelly


  • 1 medium green bell pepper, seeded, finely chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, seeded, finely chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 6 medium jalapeƱo peppers, seeded finely chopped (about 3/4 cup)
  • 1-1/2 cups cider vinegar
  • 6-1/2 cups sugar, measured into separate bowl
  • 1/2 tsp. butter or margarine
  • 1 pouch CERTO Fruit Pectin


  1. BRING boiling-water canner, half-full with water, to simmer. Wash jars and screw bands in hot soapy water; rinse with warm water. Pour boiling water over flat lids in saucepan off the heat. Let stand in hot water until ready to use. Drain well before filling.
  2. PLACE green, red and jalapeno peppers and vinegar in 6- or 8-qt. saucepot. Stir in sugar. Add butter to reduce foaming. Bring mixture to full rolling boil (a boil that doesn’t stop bubbling when stirred) on high heat, stirring constantly.
  3. STIR in pectin. Add crushed red pepper, if desired; stir until well blended. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 1 min., stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.
  4. LADLE immediately into prepared jars, filling to within 1/8 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with 2-piece lids. Screw bands tightly. Place jars on elevated rack in canner. Lower rack into canner. (Water must cover jars by 1 to 2 inches. Add boiling water, if necessary.) Cover; bring water to gentle boil. Process 10 min. Remove jars and place upright on towel to cool completely. After jars cool, check seals by pressing middle of lid with finger. (If lid springs back, lid is not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.)
