TMTT: Homemade Green Pepper Jelly

Note:    You have bought pepper jelly in the store, but until you have made it fresh you have not really realized just how delicious it can be.     Put this out at your Superbowl party with some triscuits and the plate will come back empty!

Green Pepper Jelly

6 large green peppers, cut in squares
1 1/2 cups cider vinegar
1 tsp. crushed red pepper
6 cups sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
One bottle pectin

Place half the green pepper pieces in an electric blender container with 3/4 cup vinegar. Cover and process until liquified.  Pour into saucepan.  Repeat with remaining pepper and vinegar and add to saucepan.

Stir in the red pepper, sugar and salt and heat to boiling. Stir in liquid pectin and boil until somewhat thickened. Add a few drops of green food coloring and pour into sterilized jars and seal.

So delicious served over a log of cream cheese!

Join me over at Tempt My Tummy Tuesday for more delicious recipes!

I have made pepper jelly. Still have a few jars in the pantry. Much, much better than storebought.
