Quick and spicy, appetizer or snack, gift it or keep it. This Fiery 'Fridgerator Jelly is versatile and simple; anyone can enjoy it.

What You'll Need

  • 3 jalapeno peppers, seeded and coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, coarsely chopped
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/2 (6-ounce) package liquid fruit pectin
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

What to Do

  1. Process jalapenos and bell pepper in a food processor until smooth.
  2. Combine pepper puree, sugar, and vinegar in a non-aluminum saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Boil 3 minutes; stir in pectin and lime juice. Boil, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Remove from heat, and skim off foam with a metal spoon.
  3. Pour into hot, sterilized canning jars, filling to 1/4-inch from top; wipe jar rims. Cover at once with metal lids, and screw on bands; cool. Store in refrigerator.


I've skipped the canning process to make an easy, small batch of keep-in-the-fridge jelly. It's a cool appetizer with a sweet-hot flavor teaser. I love it served over cream cheese with crackers or toast, or with meats as a relish. It also makes a great gift for the holidays-just remember to tell 'em to keep it in the fridge!

Roasted Root Vegetables

When the root vegetables are on sale at your market, you've got to fill up a few bags, 'cause you're going to need them to make this recipe for Roasted Root Vegetables. Roasted vegetables are good as-is, but by tossing them in just a little olive oil and adding some basic seasonings, we really enhance their flavors!
