Step 1

Combine chopped peppers and vinegar in blender. Blend until smooth and pour into large pot. Add sugar. Heat on medium-high and stir until sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil and boil for 3 minutes.

Step 2

Stir in pectin. Return to a full rolling boil on high heat. Boil hard for 1 minute. Remove from heat and skim off foam.

Step 3

Add a bit of food colouring if desired to make a stronger colour. Pour into hot sterilized jars to within 1/4" of top. Seal.

Mom's favourite hot pepper jelly. Great on crackers and with cheese.
