Yesterday morning I summoned the courage to complete my pepper jelly. I used an easy recipe from the Ball cookbook.
Here is were things got spicy. In my pot I mixed another cup of apple cider vinegar, six cups of sugar and the puree from the blender. I boiled for 10 minutes then added two packages of liquid pectin. Everyone agreed that the whole house felt spicy for a few hours but it wasn't unbearable.
My hot jars were waiting to be filled. If I do this again I will use smaller jars. This time I used what I had on hand.
I'm hoping that the pepper jelly is as tasty as it is pretty. We haven't tasted the jelly yet because it's still resting but plan to enjoy it tonight at dinner.
