Seeking Hot Pepper Jelly Recipe
Anyone have a good recipe for hot pepper jelly or jam? I'm living on an educational farm right now and our peppers are going crazy right now...
My friend keeps trying to make a pepper jelly with liquid pectin, but it keeps not gelling--any advice or recipes? Thanks!
I made a habanero pineapple pepper jelly last year and it turned out wonderfully. You can adjust based on the types of chiles you have, etc. I used powdered pectin, and used the amount called for on the box. It jelled nicely. I've heard of other people having great success using only lemon peels instead of pectin. I think I'll try that next time, but this worked well:

Foolproof. But I up the # of habs to maybe 15.
That site has a bunch of other recipes, too.
If you use liquid pectin you need to use exactly as much sugar as called for (in this case 7 cups). Use less and it won't gel.
