• 1 cup chopped Red and Green Bell Pepper
 1 1/2 cups apple cider vinegar
• 1/2 cup chopped Jalapeño Peppers
• 5 cups white sugar
• 1 (6 fluid ounce) container liquid pectin

• Serve with Ritz Crackers and as a dollop on top of Cream Cheese spread onto cracker. Yum!


  1. [Important! Wear plastic food-grade gloves whenever handling jalapeño peppers.] Remove stems, veins and most of the seeds of the bell and jalapeno peppers. Mince peppers in a food processor.
  2. In a 5-quart pot over high heat, combine bell peppers, jalapenos, sugar and vinegar. Bring to a rolling boil; boil for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and cool for 5 minutes.
  3. Stirring constantly, add the pectin and let mixture continue to cool for 2 minutes more. Now stir for 1 minute.
  4. Pour into hot, sterilized jars and top with sterilized lids. Secure lids with bands and allow jars to cool slowly, creating a vacuum seal.
