jalapeno jelly

I made some jalapeno jelly. I didn't have enough jars prepared so I put the last of it in a refrigerator container. As soon as It cooled I sampled it. It was plesantly hot. quite stiff.

I opened a jar at a family gathering. Everyone liked it but... It had NO heat and was the proper consistancy. It had the taste of jalapenos Just no heat. Why?

Would I be asking for trouble if I left some seeds in the next batch?
The container in the refrigerator is still hot and it takes a sharp knife to slice it!!

RE: jalapeno jelly

The heat is in the white membrane and seeds, so you need to leave some of that in the jelly. I end up seeding about 2/3 of the jalapenos, leaving the seeds in one third, and it comes out to my taste. Of course, some like it hotter and some like it milder.

Thanks, I have about 15 pounds in the freezer waiting on me. Hope I get it done this weekend.
