Let's Make It
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 jars well before filling.
2
To make the relish:

3
Cut peppers in half and discard seeds. Put through food chopper twice, using finest blade. Drain peppers, reserving exactly 1 cup of the prepared juice; pour juice into 6- or 8-qt. saucepot. Set aside to use when preparing the jelly. Measure exactly 1 cup of the drained prepared peppers into separate 6- or 8-qt. saucepot.
4
Stir 3-1/2 cups of the sugar and 3/4 cup vinegar into peppers in saucepot. Add 1/2 tsp. of the 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 1 pouch of the pectin. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 1 min., stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.
5
Ladle immediately into prepared jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with two-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 a towel to cool completely. After jars cool, check seals by pressing middles of lids with finger. (If lids spring back, lids are not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.)

To make the jelly:

7
Stir remaining 3-1/2 cups sugar and remaining 1/2 cup vinegar into prepared juice in saucepot. Tint with food coloring, if desired. Add remaining 1/2 tsp. butter to reduce foaming. Bring mixture to full rolling boil on high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in remaining pouch of pectin. Return to full rolling boil, and boil exactly 1 min., stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.
8
Ladle immediately into prepared jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with two-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 5 min. Remove jars and place upright on a towel to cool completely. After jars cool, check seals by pressing middles of lids with finger.

Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
How to Measure Precisely
To get exact level cup measures of sugar, spoon sugar into dry metal or plastic measuring cups, then level by scraping excess sugar from top of cup with a straight-edged knife.
Tip 2
Altitude Chart
At altitudes above 1,000 feet, increase processing time as indicated: 1,001 to 3,000 feet - increase processing time by 5 min.; 3,001 to 6,000 feet - increase processing time by 10 min.; 6,001 to 8,000 feet - increase processing time by 15 min.; 8,001 to 10,000 feet - increase processing time by 20 min.
Tip 3
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.
