This is my first time of making this and oh man, is it good!! I could just eat it out of the jar. The hot peppers don't make the jelly hot, just a little bit tangy/ zippy. Sweet and fruity and tangy and a real taste of the bell peppers, not overwhelmed by the sugar.
I did all the chopping by hand and it took me two hours to reduce a whole big bowlful of peppers to 3 cups finely minced. After that it is all quick and easy. And definitely worth all the chopping.
So now I have GOT to stop making jelly! Every jar in the house is used up and I have dozens of jars of jelly. If I don't quit pretty soon, I'm going to have to make new friends to give them too!
