Jack's Homemade Pepper Jelly - Gift in a Jar
JACK'S HOMEMADE PEPPER JELLY
Big thanks to Shannon!
We like this on anything, but we really like it over softened Philly
cream cheese and some crackers. As one of my co-workers put it, it's
like crack on a cracker. You really can't stop eating it!
Apprx 11 ½ pint widemouth jars
1 box Certo
6-1/2 cups sugar
1-1/2 cups Apple Cider Vinegar
2-3/4 cups chopped peppers (3/4 cup being Jalapeno peppers, which is
about 6-7 medium peppers. The Rest is approximately 2 Green, 2 Red,
and 1 Purple sweet pepper.
Put 1 tablespoon of the Jalapeno seeds in with the peppers.
Take all ingredients, mix in pot and Bring to a Roiling Boil. ( Stir
constantly the whole time )
Add 1 package of Certo, then bring back to a boil,
Boil for 1 minute, then turn off heat.
Ladle the hot liquid into jars, wipe off rims (or use a funnel if you
have one) and put canning lids on. Fill only 7/8 full.
When all Jars are filled, turn jars upside down for 5 minutes.
Turn jars back up, and let set for several hours, you will hear jars
popping and sealing during this time.
