3/4 c. bell pepper (green or red, your choice)
1/4 c. jalapeno peppers (can adjust to your liking
1 1/2 c. apple cider vinegar
6 c. sugar
1 (4-oz) pkg. certo

How to Make Hot Pepper Jelly


  • 1Very finely chop peppers (food processor works great for this).
  • 2Mix peppers, sugar and vinegar in a large saucepan on medium/low heat. Bring to a rolling boil. Remove from heat. I usually very quickly skim some of the pepper peeling pieces from the top at this point. It makes the jelly prettier.
  • 3Add Certo and food coloring. Stir until jelly starts to thicken.
  • 4Pour into hot, sterilized jars and seal. Process in a hot water bath for 10 minutes.
