Hot pepper jelly - Set & flavors
So I've been making hot pepper jelly for years - always follow the BBB recipe that uses 2 packets of liquid pectin. It always sets, but is very stiff. My neighbor suggested I use 1 1/2 packets, so I did on my last batch and it set - still a little too stiff. I've read many posts about using powdered pectin, and how it can take a while to set, but nobody seems to come back to say "yes it did set, or no it didnt". Anyway - has anybody played around with pectin amounts? If so, have you found something that sets, but is not very thick / stiff?
Also - I want to explore different hot pepper jelly recipes. I've heard of cranberry hot pepper, and habanero gold - any others I should try?
Thanks for any ideas :)
