We used this recipe at the last minute for some Christmas gifts. We did use 2 green peppers and 3 red peppers. I also used 1 1/4 tsp of chili powder and 1/4 of cayenne pepper to give it a little zip. We love it... in fact, just might have to make another batch for myself.. since gave the first batch away!

I had a jar of Stonewall Kitchen's Red Pepper Jelly and loved it, so I decided to find a recipe I could make at home for gifts and to sell at our church's Christmas Bazaar. This is it!!! with 2 adjustments: The SK ingredients listed 'red pepper sauce' rather than chili powder as in this one and, since I thought the chili powder might look grainy, I used hot sauce instead - 3 tsp. of Goya hot sauce was perfect. Also, I decided that liquid pectin would be better for jelly so I used 2 pouches of Certo liquid pectin. I followed the "cooked jelly" instructions in the Certo package and used my food processor to finely chop the peppers using only red peppers when they were on sale. The results were perfectly jewel-like! The jelly was clear with bits of beautiful red pepper suspended throughout and the taste was to die for!...less sweet than the SK brand and with just a touch more of a kick. Spooned it over cream cheese on crackers and EVERYONE wants the recipe!
