Beautiful in color, and sweet with a little heat; this classic jelly is perfect for entertaining by serving it on top of cream cheese or goat cheese. It also makes a great glaze for a pork tenderloin, hot wings, or salmon. This recipe makes six 8oz jars.

Author's Notes

Scoop one ladle of pepper jelly in each jar to evenly distribute peppers before completely filling each jar. The peppers rise to the top. If you do not evenly distribute them, you will have no peppers left for the last jars.

Step 4
Ladle jelly evenly into sterile jars, filling to 1/4 inch from top of jar. Cover with flat lids and screw on screw bands tight.
Step 5
