My Sister's Pepper Jelly

Aren't these pretty? They look like Christmas ornaments. My sister likes her pepper jelly with just a hint of jalapeno, so this is perfect if you like yours on the milder side. It's great on crackers with cream cheese, or just by itself. My sister and my mom made these and shared them (and the recipe) with me.

Judy's Pepper Jelly
(printable recipe)
2/3 cup chopped sweet peppers (green or red)

1 small jalapeno pepper

2 3/4 cups apple cider vinegar

5 1/2 cups sugar
1 pouch Certo liquid pectin
food coloring if desired
1 tsp. butter or margarine

  • Put first four ingredients into a large kettle. Bring to a rolling boil and boil for 10 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Remove from heat and strain through cheesecloth to remove solids. Add 1 pouch Certo liquid pectin, food coloring (red or green...about 9 drops) and 1 teaspoon butter.
  • Return to kettle and boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  • Pour into sterilized jars and process 5 minutes in a boiling water bath.
Makes 5 (half-pint) jars
