Pepper Jelly

Member since 2007

Serves 8 - 8oz jars | Prep Time | Cook Time


3 - 4 bell peppers (I used red) roughly chopped
1 1/2 cups white vinegar
4 TB crushed red pepper flakes (or to taste)
6 1/2 cups sugar
6 oz liquid fruit pectin

In a blender, puree the bell peppers, vinegar, and pepper flakes. Pour into a saucepan and add the sugar.

Bring to a boil, stirring often. Boil hard for 5 minutes, stirring often. Add the fruit pectin and boil for 1 minute. All the while, you need to keep an eye on this. It likes to sneak up to the top of the pan and you don't want it to boil over.

Skim off any foam. Carefully pour into heat resistant jars with a lid. Store in the refrigerator or freezer. Will take up to a week to set.

My neighbor shared this recipe with me many many years ago. When she first had me taste some, I was a little doubtful. The idea of a savory jelly was new to me and my taste buds were being very narrow minded. She served it to me on a cracker with cream cheese. It was amazing! A little sweet, a little heat...cooled off by the cheese. I think this would also make a fantastic glaze over a tenderloin.
