Pepper Jelly

Submitted by Patti Wilson
This jelly and the Raspberry Pepper Jelly are great Christmas gifts (red & green), given with a box of Holiday Ritz crackers and a brick of cream cheese.

Yield: Approximately 3+ pints.


2 cups green peppers chopped fine (do not use food processor)

5 fresh jalapeno peppers, seeded, ribbed and chopped (you might want to use rubber gloves for this)

5 1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup lemon juice

3/4 cup vinegar

1 box Certo (tinfoil-use both)

green food coloring, if needed


Heat all ingredients except lemon juice and Certo. Boil 3 minutes-add juice and Certo. Boil 2 minutes.

Put in hot jars and seal.

Serve with cream cheese and crackers. I like it with Ritz best.
