Liz Krejci's Pepper Jelly


This is my good friend, Liz Krejci's, Pepper Jelly recipe!  I remember the first time I ever had some, she brought it to a party we were having, and served it over cream cheese on crackers!  Ohhhhh I was in love with it!  It was soooooo yummy!  

Since then I've had it many times (every Christmas we would get a gift basket of her canned goodies, and the pepper jelly was always one of the most cherished). 

Until today had I never made it myself, so I picked some great peppers from my Kitchen Garden and got to work chopping and dicing the peppers.  Ooooo laaaa laaaa!  Wonderful!

1 ¼ cups white vinegar
2 cups chopped green peppers (seeded)
1 cup chopped jalapeno peppers (seeded - wear gloves when handling the jalapeno peppers)
6 cups sugar
1 pkg Sure-Jell
1 tsp butter (to prevent foaming)

Pulverize or puree in blender:
¼ cup vinegar
chopped peppers
chopped jalapeno peppers

In large stock pot or pan:
Pulverized/pureed peppers
1 pkg Sure-Jell
1 cup vinegar
1 tsp butter

Boil 3 minutes, skim off foam (if any). Pour in sugar all at once and boil hard (rolling boil) for 1 minute. Remove from heat and pour in sterilized jars. Process jars 5 minutes in boiling water bath.
