Hot Pepper Jelly
Hint: Use rubber gloves to handle hot peppers. Using a food processer or chopper works best.

1/2 cup of hot jalapeno peppers.. ground (you can leave the seeds in but it is much hotter.) 1/2 cup of red or green peppers chopped fine 1 cup of ground onion 6 1/2 cups of sugar 1 1/2 cups of white vinegar Bring to a hard boil. Stir in one pouch of certo, boil one minute more.

You can add a few drops of red or green food coloring if you want. Remove from heat, skim off foam with a metal spoon if needed. Bottle and seal right away. Makes 4 pints. Serve with cream cheese and ritz crackers.
