  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 cup seeded and finely chopped sweet red peppers
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups apple juice or cider
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package powdered pectin
  • 3 1/2 cups sugar


Put the vinegar and pepper pieces into a blender. Blend until the total measures about 1 1/2 cups. Combine remaining ingredients except sugar and paper mixture in a large pot and bring to a full boil. Add the sugar and pepper mixture and return to a full boil. Boil 1 minute and seal in sterilized jars. Process in boiling water 10 minutes. Place jars sideways on a rack and turn them every 5 minutes until the jelly thickens, to keep the tiny flecks of red pepper evenly distributed throughout the jelly.
