Remove stems, veins and most of the seeds of the bell and jalapeño peppers. Mince peppers in a food processor.

I make lots of pepper jellies but would like a chunkier version like Harry and David's pepper onion relish to serve over cream cheese and crackers. Anyone have a recipe?

Hi Nettie,
I don't have a recipe for you but I would love to have some of the pepper jelly recipes that you have. I just recently tried some for the first time and I loved it. If you have them on your computer you can email them to me at lchilds48@yahoo.com.
Thanks,
Linda

Your recipe tastes very much like Harry and David's Pepper Relish, however I have tried it twice and I cannot get it to jell up as thick as theirs. Mine is syrupy. Is that how yours does? Please respond.

Thanks,

I have a lot of peppers that I want to make into jelly, but not right now. Can I freeze them and make jelly later? If so, what would be the best way to freeze the peppers?

I've frozen peppers myself in air tight containers after dicing but they tend to clump together and sometimes get icy crystals around them. This said they are easy to break apart. The difficult thing is to defrost without then letting the peppers go soggy. Best achieved if they can be drained straight through a sieve as they defrost I believe. Peppers cooked straight from frozen in my opinion are too soggy so better again to defrost first. As regards using to make jelly to be frank I've no idea, but good luck with it anyway!

No idea about the jelly part, but peppers freeze well. The main thing is that they be air tight and very dry when they are frozen. Cut the tops off, and remove seeds. Wash and dry completely. They sometimes seem mushy when defrosted, but the taste is fine.

Definitely make sure all the moisture has been washed off of them and then place in an airtight container and you should have no problem. The water crystals and clumping will occur if all the moisture hasn't been dried off.

I lost my recipe for jalapeno jelly. It was like the one in the Ball Liquid Pectin folder, but it also called for concentrated apple juice. Can I use the same amount of juice as the vinegar?

Answers

I have searched on Ball website and also on the Pectin site to find the recipe you are referring to. So far all recipes to make hot pepper or jalapeno pepper jelly call for white vinegar or apple cider vinegar.

I can't find any recipes that use concentrated apple juice. I would suggest that you don't use the vinegar and only use the apple juice. Try a small batch and see how it tastes.
