  • Rinse clean plastic containers and lids with boiling water. Dry thoroughly.
  • Place peppers in blender container; cover. Blend on medium speed, using on/off pulses, to evenly chop peppers. (Do not process until pureed). Scrape down side of blender container, if necessary. Place peppers in large bowl. Add apple juice and food coloring; mix well. Stir in sugar. Let stand 10 min., stirring occasionally.
  • Mix pectin and vinegar in small bowl. Add to pepper mixture; stir 3 min. or until sugar is dissolved and no longer grainy. (A few sugar crystals may remain.)
  • Fill all containers immediately to within 1/2 inch of tops. Wipe off top edges of containers; immediately cover with lids. Let stand at room temperature 24 hours. Jelly is now ready to use. Store in refrigerator up to 3 weeks or freeze extra containers up to 1 year. Thaw in refrigerator before using.

Important Note

Wear plastic gloves to protect hands while preparing peppers.


Jelly sets slowly; may take up to 1 week.
