Quick & Easy Hot Pepper Jelly

4 Servings


20 MIN


0-15 min


10 MIN


4 medium

assorted bell peppers (I used green, red, yellow, and orange)


jalapeño peppers

2 cups

HEINZ Apple Cider Vinegar

3 cups

granulated sugar


Step 1

Wash the jars, lids and bands in hot, soapy water; rinse well. Put the jars in a large pot and cover with water. Boil 10 minutes, then reduce the heat and simmer until ready to use. Meanwhile, put the lids and bands in a separate saucepan of simmering water until ready to use (do not boil). Just before filling, carefully remove the jars from the water with a jar lifter or tongs, shake out the excess water and transfer to a clean kitchen towel.

Step 2

Remove the ribs and seeds of the bell peppers and jalapenos. Roughly chop and pulse briefly in a food processor until finely minced. You can also finely mince by hand. Add the peppers to a medium-to-large, heavy bottomed pot set to medium-high heat.

Step 3

Add the vinegar and sugar to the pot; stir to combine. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, add powdered pectin. Continue boiling, stirring occasionally, for 1 minute.

Step 4

Ladle the mixture into sterilized jars. Set aside to cool before capping and refrigerating. Once cool, cap and refrigerate jars. The jelly will thicken as it cools. Will keep up to 2 months refrigerated.
