A little sweet and a little spicy, homemade pepper jelly is the perfect glaze for meat, especially pork. This recipe is easy, just make sure it has time to set.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 5 ingredients and 1 cup water in a medium saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer 5 minutes or until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat, strain through a wire-mesh strainer, and set aside.

Step 2

Place 1 cup strained liquid in refrigerator to cool. When cool, sprinkle gelatin over liquid; stir and let stand one minute. Add gelatin mixture to remaining liquid and whisk until blended and dissolved, about 5 minutes.

Step 3

Transfer mixture to a storage container, and chill until jelly is set, 4 hours or overnight.
