Jalepeno Jelly



• 13 jalepenos (4 whole, 9 seeded)
• 3 medium peppers (1 orange, 1 red, 1 yellow)
• 3 cups vinegar
• 10 cups sugar
• 4 ounces of liquid pectin (I prefer Certo brand)

Remove stems and chop jalepeno, remove stems and seeds from peppers – all in food processor. Pour peppers in pot and add vinegar. Cook on outside stove and add sugar bringing to a hard rolling boil for 10 minutes. Stir occasionally. Put 1 tablespoon of butter in pot to reduce foaming. Skim foam from top if there is any.
Remove from heat and add pectin. Boil for another 1-2 minutes. Pour into hot sterile ½ pint jars. (12-14 jars needed) Boil the seals in a saucepan to keep hot. Pour hot jelly into jars leaving 1/4 “ space from top of jar. Tighten screwbands and let sit upside down for 24 hours with a towel over them. *Only make one recipe at a time.
