Pepper Jelly


In my quest to be organized for Christmas this year I have been making a few things that can be made ahead. Pepper Jelly is the perfect make ahead treat. One batch makes 14 mini jars. I will give a jar of pepper jelly, a block of cream cheese and a package of Wheat Thins. Tied with a festive ribbon this will make a wonderful little Christmas gift.

The recipe comes right off the Kraft site. When it comes to canned goods I stick to the recipe exactly. So check out Kraft Pepper Jelly made with Certo, it came together quickly and was delicious. Be sure and wear food grade rubber gloves when cutting hot peppers. I've learned the hard way!
Good luck--just try and save some for Christmas! Or make a second batch and just enjoy.


1 year ago--Crock Pot Potato Cheese Soup (one of my most popular recipes)
2 years ago-Black Forest Brownies (my favorite treat, I make them yearly for my birthday)
3 years ago-Baked Potato Soup (hands down family favorite--even those that don't love soup like this)

Oh my goodness! I love this stuff! I have given it as Christmas gifts too and everyone loves it. It is hard not to eat it all yourself though.

Can you believe I am still picking jalapeƱos and serranos? I am making some more to add to Xmas cache too.
