This is the first thing I ever canned. It was very sweet, not warm/hot at all, but my husband said it tasted like it should (I had never tried it). I will add more jalapenos in the 2nd batch I'm doing. I had trouble getting it to set, but I didn't boil it long enough in round one. Read up on how to tell if it's going to set/consistency to watch for. I re-processed with sugar-free Sure-Jell, and it worked like a charm. All lids sealed 1st AND 2nd processing (YAY!). Excellent beginner's recipe for people like me whose hubby planted too many jalapeno plants!
This is my first time making pepper jelly. It set up wonderfully! I didn't have green or red sweet peppers, so I used mostly jalapenos and a few banana peppers I had. Didn't seed the jalapenos (which would have been prettier), but my husband (who will be the main consumer of this) thought it tasted great!
Great flavor! Mine came out runny (I'm new to jellies), I'm going to try the remake recipe, but even the runny batch is delicious. Absolutely my favorite thing I've canned so far. Pepper jelly is one of my favorite holiday traditions and now I can make my own to share with family!
great jelly. everybody loved it. used orange yellow and red bell peppers. made for a very pretty color. it set up just fine. i did find that while getting the peppers ready, there was a lot of juice. i drained off access juice before starting the cooking process. just might be the key to it setting up right. i'll be making it again soon
I love this jelly but I can never get it to set up. I make hundreds of jars of jelly a year and this is the only on I have trouble with. 5 times I have had to follow the instructions for jelly that didn't set up!! help
This is my second batch of Hot Pepper Jelly and it's even better than the last. I used 70% jalapenos and 30% bell peppers. I deseeded the peppers, then put the seeds in a jelly bag and let it sit in the pepper/vinegar mix while it cooked. Gave it just enough heat without having seeds in the jelly. Love, love, love this recipe!
I need some help! I used a food processor for the peppers. The green peppers turn out very watery due to being too processed. In turn, my jelly will not set! Is there anything I can do to fix this without having to make this again?
Made 2 batches set perfectly! Mix with peanut butter and use as a glaze on chicken, wings or breasts! Glad I found this recipe! Used green and red jalapenos, and food processer too!
Ok, gonna try this one. going to garden now will use whatever peppers are fresh and available. Will let you know how it turns out.
This is a delicious recipe. Instead of only uing jalapenos, I added some hotter peppers. Habaneros, Trinidad Scorpions, Bhut Jolokias and Red Savinas. It turned out more spicey, but that is how I like it. This jelly goes great with cream cheese.
