Jalapeno Pepper Jelly

Published 12:34pm Thursday, October 24, 2013

Peppers seem to sometimes be the last veggies out of the garden each year, so hopefully you still have plenty on hand for this great recipe!  Bernice Overland submitted this one after making lots of jars of the wonderful goodness, and luckily sharing with us at the office!

It is just delightful when poured over a block of cream cheese and served with nice grainy crackers.  It also makes a great accompaniment, as a replacement to the typical BBQ sauce, when served with roasted pork tenderloin or pork chops off the grill!

This recipe makes twelve quarter pints


 2 red peppers, seeded and finely chopped (about 1 ½ cups)

1 package Sure Jell fruit pectin

½ tsp butter
