Ingredients For hot pepper jelly

  • 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
  • 4 drops food coloring (green or red)

How To Make hot pepper jelly

  • 1
    Very finely chop peppers (food processor works great for this).
  • 2
    Mix 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.
  • 3
    Add Certo and food coloring. Stir until jelly starts to thicken.
  • 4
    Pour into hot, sterilized jars and seal. Process in a hot water bath for 10 minutes.
