Tuesday, August 22, 2006 Canning/Preserving Recipes: Habanero Pepper Jelly Recipe

Habanero Jelly
Submitted by Christi
Yields: 7 half-pint jars

3 large fleshy orange bell peppers
5 to 10 ripe habanero peppers
1 1/2 cups distilled white vinegar
7 cups sugar
9 fl oz liquid fruit pectin (Certo or equivalent)

Remove stems, seeds and membranes from all peppers (use gloves when handling the habaneros...yes... seriously... USE GLOVES!). Put peppers and the vinegar in a blender and process until smooth. Combine pepper-vinegar puree and all the sugar in a non-corrosive pan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer, and cook for twenty (20) minutes. Remove from heat and strain through cheesecloth into another pan. Add pectin and bring to a full rolling boil while stirring. Boil about one minute, remove from heat and ladle into sterile jars.
