  • Wash jars and screw bands in hot soapy water. Rinse well. Place jars, right sides up, on rack in bottom of boiling-water canner. Fill canner with enough warm water so it covers tops of jars by at least 1 inch. Bring water to boil; boil jars 10 min. Reduce heat to simmer. Leave jars in hot water until ready to be filled.
  • Place new lids in medium saucepan filled with water; bring water to boil. Turn off heat. Let lids stand in water until ready to be used.
  • Place peaches and peppers in 6- or 8-qt. saucepot. Add vinegar. Stir in pectin. 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.
  • Stir in sugar. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 1 min., stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.
  • Remove jars from water; drain well. Immediately ladle fruit mixture into prepared jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with 2-piece lids. Screw bands tightly. Place jars on rack, then lower into canner. (Water must cover jars by 1 to 2 inches. Add boiling water, if necessary.) Cover canner; 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 centers of lids with finger. (If lids spring back, lids are not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.)

Special Equipment Needed

How to Finely Chop the Peppers

Use pulsing action of food processor to process the fruit and vegetables until finely chopped as directed in recipe, stopping as necessary to scrape ingredients off side of food processor container; drain well. The ingredients need to be finely chopped in order for them to be evenly distributed in the finished jam.

Handling Jalapeño Peppers

For more heat, leave in some of the jalapeño seeds. Protect hands with rubber gloves while preparing jalapeño peppers.

Jam or Jelly Didn't Set?

Every once in a while, you may find that your jam does not set the way you expected. If your efforts resulted in a runny batch, try our Remake Directions to improve your finished jam. If your jam still doesn't set, you can always use it as a glaze or syrup.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too sweet I liked the combination of hot and sweet and the vinegar added a nice tang but I found it to be too sweet. I would cut down on the sugar next time. As far as the person who said the jam didn't set, I'm wondering if she used fresh red pepper and jalapeños? She mentioned al the juice. I didn't have jucie with my peppers. I assumed fresh. The recipe didn't specify fresh but most recipes will specify canned if that is what you are supposed to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious The taste is wonderful, the Jam did not set well, I followed the instructions, only thing I did not drain the peppers,not sure if that is what made the difference because I have made this type of pepper jam before with just the peppers and not fruit and never had a problem and I always drained, seeing that it only called for 1 cup of vinegar I thought maybe it needed the juice from peppers and recipe did not specify to drain. I have always used the liquid pectin in the past, maybe will try with the liquid pectin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and tasty It turned out great! I did make a double batch. It calls for 10 jalapeños per batch so I bought 20 but only needed 10 to make 2 cups. I did add 1tablesoon red pepper flakes too! I also cooked it for an hour instead of the 1min that it called for.
