Habanero Pepper Jelly

IMG_9324Hubby loves hot and spicy stuff so I knew I had to give this recipe a try. We ate it over cream cheese on crackers and it was awesome! I also used it as a topping on a pulled pork sandwich–to die for…


Habanero Pepper Jelly

Yield: 4-1/2 pint jars


1/3 cup finely sliced dried apricots
3/4 cup white vinegar
1/4 up finely diced red onion
1/4 cup finely diced sweet red pepper
1/4 cup finely diced habanero peppers - I removed the seeds but you can leave them in if you want it REALLY hot
3 cups granulated sugar
1 pouch liquid pectin


Cut apricots into 1/8 inch slices. Measure into a large, deep stainless steel saucepan with vinegar; let stand 4 hours. Individually, cut onion and seeded peppers into 1/8 inch slices; then add to a food processor and pulse a few times. Measure each ingredient; add to apricots. Stir in sugar.

Bring to a full rolling boil. Stirring constantly, boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and add liquid pectin, mixing well.

Pour jelly into hot jars, dividing solids equally among jars and filling each jar to within 1/4 inch of top rim. Wipe rims and apply lids.

Process 10 minutes in a boiling water bath. Cool upright, until lids pop down, about 30 minutes. When lids are concave but the jelly is still hot, carefully grasp jar without disturbing lid and invert, twist, or rotate each jar to distribute solids throughout jelly.

Repeat as necessary during the cooling/setting time, until solids remain suspended in the jelly.

    s say you have a site offering a service or product in the travel market.
    This is where the biggest questions come into play. In effect,
    PPC advertising and organic search engine optimization have the same goals (and typically use the same
    keywords), but the tactics they use to bring people in are different.
