Make Your Own Jalapeño Jelly~ Super Easy!

If you are like me ~ you have peppers galore! This is a great jelly to can now and use for Christmas parties and or gift baskets. It is SO easy! I am about to whip up another batch or two.

Jalapeno Jelly~

2 green pepper ( You need 4 cups of peppers total)
1 red pepper
6-8 Jalapeno peppers
7 cups of sugar
1 1.2 c. vinegar
1  box~ Sure Jell

*Seed the peppers and grid them in the blender with vinegar.
* Boil pepper/ vinegar mixture in a pot and add sugar; boil for 15 minutes.
* Add Sure Jell and bring to a full boil.
* Stir for 2 minutes.

Makes 6 jelly size containers.

Pour over cream cheese and serve with crackers.

For Canning~

Remove from heat and skim any foam.  Ladle hot jelly into hot sterile half-pint jelly jars, leaving a 1/4" head space. Wipe rims clean of any spillage. Top each jar with seal and band. Tighten to fingertip tight. Place filled jars into water bath canner and bring to a full rolling boil. Allow to process for 15 minutes after it comes to a boil. Once time has elapsed, remove from canner and allow to cool. Listen for the "ping" sound to ensure that jars have sealed properly. Jelly will be liquid in consistency until it cools completely and sets up.

I've made lots of jams and jellies, but never made jalapeno. I think I need to try this. Then again, I wish I was there at your house. I'd bring the crackers and the cream cheese, you supply the jelly!!! Light rain here in Central MO. Praying for you and yours today Carrie!
