Pepper Jelly

Sweet 'n' spicy Pepper Jelly is definitely one of our favorites when we're craving something a little different. It has the perfect balance of sugar and jalapeno pepper to send 'em all raving!

What You'll Need

  • 2 medium-sized green bell peppers, chopped
  • 14 fresh jalapeño peppers (about pound total), stems and seeds removed, chopped
  • 7 cups sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup apple juice
  • 1 (6-ounce) package liquid pectin (see Note)
  • 1/4 teaspoon green food color (optional)

What to Do

  1. In a large pot, combine all the ingredients except the pectin and food color. Bring to a boil over medium heat and allow to boil for 2 to 3 minutes.

  2. Add the pectin then return the mixture to a boil, and boil for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and strain, discarding the pepper pieces. Place in a large bowl and add the food color, if desired; mix until well blended.

  3. Pour into airtight containers, cover, and allow to jell at room temperature. Store in the refrigerator until ready to use.

    Makes about 6 cups.


Liquid pectin can be found in the supermarket produce or baking section, or near the jellies and jams. This can be stored in the refrigerator for several months.
