, Jalapeno Jelly Recipe – My First Attempt

Jalapeno Jelly Recipe

I recently purchased Jalapeno Jelly at a local farmers market, and it was lovely, with a little kick.  So I decided to attempt to can jelly for the first time in my life.

I’ve only done the freezer jam before.

It didn’t turn out like the one I purchased as she added apricots and onions to it, which I didn’t read on her ingredient list when scouting for a Jalapeno Jelly recipe.

The recipe I used is from All Recipes.

Jallapeno Jelly Recipe – My First Attempt


  • Prep Time: 20 mins
  • Cook Time: 45 mins
  • Total Time: 1 hour 5 minutes

Description

Very Hot jelly to be used with cream cheese crackers, or put on a meat or sauce.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 large green bell pepper
  • 12 jalapeno peppers
  • 1 1/2 cups apple cider vinegar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 4 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 ounces liquid pectin
  • 4 jalapeno peppers, seeded and finely chopped

Instructions

  1. Add the green bell pepper and 12 jalapeno peppers in a food processor or blender. Process until finely chopped.
  2. Put the peppers to a large saucepan, and stir in the Apple cider vinegar. Bring to a boil, and let simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. Strain the mixture through a few layers of cheesecloth, and discard peppers. You should have about 1 cup of liquid.
  3. Return the liquid to the saucepan, and stir in the salt and sugar until dissolved. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. When the mixture comes to a rolling boil (one that cannot be stirred down), boil for one minute, then stir in the liquid pectin.
  4. Stir in the remaining jalapeno peppers, and ladle into sterile jars leaving 1/4 inch headspace. Seal jars in a hot water bath. Refrigerate jelly after seal is broken

Notes

Makes 4 Mason jars full

I didn’t read the instructions well enough about the last 4 Jalapeno’s being seeded in the ingredients part. So I added the seeds. This made the Jelly extra hot.

It’s Hot! At least for me, as I don’t mind warm, but this was a little too warm for my tastebuds.

I had my neighbours taste it, and they fell in love with it, as they love Hot stuff.

If you love Jalapeno’s, this is a great recipe to try.

To make them even hotter, I’ve read in the comments area on All Recipes to include all the peppers and not discard, giving it a jam texture.
