This is a great recipe, but after making it twice, have found it either has a typo or needs a slight modification. Both times I have made this jelly as the recipe states, it has not set up properly, as others have noted as well. The first time I put it all back into a pan, added 1 more box of powdered pectin, cooked and processed again as stated. After that it set up fine and was absolutely delicious. I just made it again (as written) and am again having the problem with it not setting up. I will add more pectin and re-process as I did before and hope for the same results. For all first time users of this recipe...this is a fantastic flavored jelly...if you want it sauce consistancy follow the recipe as written. If you want jelly consistancy use 2 packets of pectin. And one word of warning...this stuff is addicting!!! I have also played with the type of peppers...substituting hotter peppers for or adding to the jalepenos. My latest batch is actually a 4 pepper jelly...Red, Green, Jalepeno and a touch of hablano...mmmmmm!
I made 3 batches of this recipe and found that I had 21 jars of jelly that did not set. Very runny and a little disappointing. Tastes good, but a bit vinegary. Is there a way to re-cook it with more pectin to make it more jelly-like? I'd appreciate some feedback to save these batches!
This recipe is AWESOME! I read all of the reviews and used 3 of the suggestions: 1. I drained the peppers after chopping 2. I boiled 2 minutes instead of 1 and 3. I used the inversion method and it worked great but I had to run the jars under hot water to loosen them so they would settle into the bottom of the jar. I also used 2 cups of red bell peppers, 1 cup of green bell peppers and 1 cup of jalepenos. The jelly turned out GREAT (but could still be hotter for my taste) and it is the first jelly I have ever made. I used Sure-Jell fruit pectin if it helps.
THIS TASTED GREAT BUT JUST WILL NOT SET. I DRAINED THE PEPPERS AFTER I CHOPPED THEM. I'VE EVEN ADD MORE PECTIN,SUGAR, LEMON JUICE AND WATER AND BOILED IT FOR A SECOND TIME AND RESEALED. AND THEY WONT SET. ANY TIPS ON HOW TO FIX?
This was the best pepper jelly--I made it in 1 evening with great success. I took half of the peppers & half of the vinegar and put the mix into my blender, repeat with the remaining half. After the jars were filled I used the inversion method instead of the hot bath (just turn the jars upside down after filling with hot mixture for 3 hours)
Divine! I used only green bell, yellow hungarian and jalapeno peppers (no red bells), since that is what we grew in our garden. Following other's suggestions, I drained the excess water from the peppers with cheesecloth before processing. I only used one packet of pectin and boiled for two minutes. These modifications created the perfect jelled consistency. I'm making my second batch right now! Thanks for the super recipe and great tips!
The taste is wonderful but my jelly wouldn't jell, I followed the instructions carefully but alas it's more like syrup than jelly. If anyone knows how to "fix" this I would appreciate it as I have 6 more pints of it and I hesitate to throw it out. I will check here weekly. Thanks
I read the other reveiwsabout it not setting up, and I should have listened. I have making jelly forever, this recipe is running, not even close to setting up. Very disapointed.
