This is an easy recipe and the results are yummy. A bit of sweet with a hint of heat...Serve with anything. A festive presentation would be green and red jelly served over cream cheese with crackers.
I found this in a magazine a while back and have enjoyed this jelly since then..

Caution: IF your hands are sensitive you will need to wear rubber gloves when handling the jalapenos. IF you don't use gloves wash your hands after working with the peppers...
