Apple Jalapeno Jelly
Homemade jelly using the apples and peppers of your choice!
  • 8 Granny Smith Apples, Peeled, Cored, and Diced
  • 3 cups Water
  • 1 cup Cider Vinegar
  • 6 Jalapenos, Stems & Seeds Removed, Diced
  • 3 cups Sugar, (I added 4 cups of sugar)
  • 6 ounces Liquid Pectin, (or 2 boxes of Sure-Jell)
  1. Place the apples, water, vinegar, and jalapeno in a large, heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. As soon as the mixture boils, lower the heat to medium and cook for about 20 minutes, or until the apples soften.
  2. Remove the pan from heat. Using a fine-mesh strainer, strain the liquid into a clean large, heavy saucepan, letting the apples drain, but do not press on them.
  3. When the liquid is extracted, discard the pulp.
  4. Add the sugar to the apple juice and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  5. Remove from heat, add pectin, and stir well.
  6. Pour into 6 sterilized jars, seal, and store.
