Notes

My cousin used to make this and combine with cream cheese for the best hors d'oeuevres!

Great (jelly only) with chicken or lamb; Glaze grilled baby back ribs with this jelly during the last 15 min. of cooking.

Note: If only green hot peppers are available, use a red rather then a green bell pepper.
