Chile pepper jelly

Yield: 48 ounces

Measure Ingredient
1 tablespoon Chopped serrano chiles
1 cup Diced anaheim chiles
1 medium Green bell pepper, diced
1¼ cup Red wine vinegar
5 cups Sugar
6 ounces Liquid pectin OR
1 pack Powdered pectin (1 3/4 oz)

Combine the chiles and pepper with the vinegar in a food processor.

Process 3 minutes until pureed. Put the puree and sugar in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat, skim the foam from the top, discard, and add the pectin. Return to the heat and bring again to a hard boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.

As it cools the jelly will begin to thicken. Pour it into clean, sterilized 8-ounce jars, leaving a ¼ inch space at the top. Seal as desired. ************
