Hot Pepper Jelly


I love hot pepper jelly! I found a great recipe for it and made a whole bunch, so I put some in baby food jars and dressed them up with some Holiday Treasures DSP and a little snowflake stamp from Snow Swirled on top with the label and the present stamp from Deer Friends. It makes a great holiday gift, so save those baby food jars!
Edited to add:
I've had some requests for the recipe so here it is:
Holiday Pepper Jelly

8 cups sugar, divided
2 jalapeño peppers, seeded
1 green bell pepper, seeded
1 red bell pepper, seeded
2 cups apple-cider vinegar
1 box (6oz) liquid pectin (2 pouches)

In a food processor, combine 1 cup of the sugar and the jalapeño peppers. Process until the jalapeno peppers are completely ground. Sugar will look green. Transfer to a large saucepan.

Cut green and red bell peppers into chunks. Chops pepper chunks into small piece in food processor. Add peppers, vinegar, and remaining sugar to saucepan and bring to a boil.

Add both pouches of pectin, and boil 1 minute. (Don’t leave or it will boil over!)

Skim foam from surface. Let cool for 1 hour. Stir, and then transfer to clean jars and cover. Refrigerate up to 6 months. Makes 9 cups.

Enjoy!
