I just finished 5 batches perfectly, beautiful color with red and green specks throughout and every jar set up. The recipe makes 5 8oz jars with a little to pour into a bowl. I did this so I could see that it set up properly then just covered and placed in the fridge for myself.
Here's what I did differently. I followed the ingredients pretty much exactly except that I used 3/4 cup of Jalapeno instead of 1/2 cup and left half the seeds and placenta in so I would have more heat. I used a 2 cup Kitchenaid chopper to mince the peppers. I brought the mixture to a rolling boil while still stirring for 1 minute following the directions on the pectin sheet for pepper relish (pretty close to pepper jelly). Removed from heat and added ONE packet of liquid pectin (also per Ball pectin direction sheet included in the box of 2 packets) returned to a full rolling boil for exactly one minute...set a timer. I then removed from heat and poured into sterilized jars and did a water bath for 5 mins. I did 5 batches, 25 8oz jars all sealed, beautiful amber color (did not add food coloring but you can) and ready to enjoy. I did turn them to evenly distribute the flecks.
