Pepper Jelly

Pepper Jelly

By July 29, 2011



  • Chop the peppers very finely, I use a food processor, then let the liquid drain off for a few minutes of the jelly may not set up well, and be runny.
  • In a large, stainless steel saucepan, combine green pepper, white vinegar, and white sugar. Bring to a boil, and cook for 6 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Stir in liquid pectin. Skim off foam with a metal spoon, and remove pan from heat
  • Ladle jelly into sterilized jars (still hot) and top with HOT jar lids
  • You will need to seal the jars in boiling water, for 5 minutes.
  • I also add some red food coloring when I add the pectin you can leave green or add green coloring but I like red better. This year I have also been using beet juice to do the coloring for me. I use about 2 ice cubes of frozen beet juice.
