  • Measure exactly 2/3 cup chopped peppers into large bowl. Add apple juice, vinegar and food coloring; mix well. Stir in sugar. Let stand 10 min., stirring occasionally.
  • Mix water and pectin in small saucepan. Bring to boil on high heat, stirring constantly. Cook and stir 1 min. Add to apple juice mixture; stir 3 min. or until sugar is dissolved and no longer grainy. (A few sugar crystals may remain.)

Store in refrigerator up to 3 weeks or freeze extra containers up to 1 year. Thaw in refrigerator before using.

    I'd also like to know if this can be made with fresh jalapenos and if so, what is the quantity. I cannot find a no cook hot pepper jelly with fresh peppers only.

    Would like to know the answer to the previous question submitted about using fresh peppers v. pickled peppers. I also have fresh ones from my garden and would like to use them but don't want to waste them if they don't work in this recipe.

    do I have to use pickled peppers? I am looking for a way to use up all the peppers in the garden....
