Safe Pepper Jelly recipe???

Pepfun1-2(8)August 6, 2011

Of course another handed down recipe. Husband's aunt used to make this and I've heard it's wonderful, if it's safe I'd like to give it a whirl.

3 bell peppers

3/4 c. ground jalapenos

2 c. cider vinegar

5 1/2 c. sugar

1 pkg sure jell

And I would process them in the BWB as the Ball book calls for with other Pepper Jelly recipes.

So? Think it's a safe one?

TIA, Pepper

Boy, these recipes that mix quantities (canning books do it too). What a pain they are to assess.

Comparing to an Extension recipe from Florida in which the peppers are blended into small bits, 2 cups vinegar is sufficient for 1 pound peppers, however they're divided up.

That's the best I can do. Someone else may find a recipe even closer to yours.

There is a hot pepper jelly recipe in the package of Ball pectin

4 c. peppers
1 c. cider vinegar
5 c. sugar
1 pkg pectin

You can use any combination of peppers you want - hot peppers versus green bell.

makes 6 half pints
