Pepper Jelly - Steph

Stephanie Dodd


This jelly is excellent over cream cheese! It is a very nice gift during the holidays as you can add a touch of red food coloring to make it festive looking. Since I am getting into canning and making jams and jellies, I wanted to post this recipe.

How to Make Pepper Jelly - Steph


  1. Chop the peppers in a food chopper. Combine the first four ingredients and bring to a boil for four minutes. Remove from heat and let cool one minute. Add pectin and food coloring (green is the typical one to use but red is good for the holidays). Strain or just skim the top. Makes 5 - 6 jelly glasses. Seal with parafin.
  2. If you prefer hotter jelly, add more jalapeno to it. I have had this over cream cheese and it is delightful!!! It is also a nice gift for co-workers or neighbors, etc. during the holidays.
