Jalapeno Pepper Jelly

This Jalapeno Pepper Jelly recipe has been around for years! It's an old standby family recipe and I often have requests.  It's one of this Granny's favorite Recipes. It's not a secret guarded recipe, so I'm sharing it here for those that can't find their own copy. This picture shows a variation using orange bell peppers.

Jalapeno Pepper Jelly

3 Medium Bell Peppers (You can use green, yellow, orange, or red)
2 Jalapeno Peppers (2 inches long. I've substituted habanero peppers for a HOT variation)
1 1/2 Cup White Vinegar
5 1/2 Cups White Sugar
1 tsp Ground Cayenne Pepper
6 ounces liquid pectin

Chop peppers and puree in a blender. Add 1 cup of vinegar and blend well. Combine pureed mixture with sugar, cayenne, and the rest of the vinegar in a large saucepan. Blend well.
Bring to a full rolling boil.
Stir in pectin and boil 1 more minute.
Remove from heat and skim off foam.
Seal in jars. Recipe fills 8 jelly jars.

*Note: This jelly can take up to two weeks to set up.

Serve with crackers and cream cheese to mellow the hot flavor of this recipe.
