Judy's Pepper Jelly is a favorite treat in my house. Judy was a student of mine. Prior to starting our business, I worked as a business management and computer aps teacher for a small college. At some point, the administrators of the college had the bright idea that I might be able to teach public speaking in addition to business. I was a good business teacher and a devoted Toastmaster - so done deal! That is another story, but Judy was one of my public speaking students.
One of her assignments was to prepare a demonstration. It was the pepper jelly that she demonstrated. I've been making it ever since. Now, I make it as gifts for my family members. When people come over, they expect to be served it. It is interesting how we all have affects on each other.
Judy's Pepper Jelly
6 1/2 c. sugar
3 Bell Peppers, (Green, Red, and Yellow)
8 oz can jalapeno peppers, chopped and drained
1 1/2 c. Apple cider vinegar
2 pouches pectin
Puree the green peppers in the food processor. Drain the liquid through a sieve now to get a jelly consistency. If you don't, you'll have a syrup consistency which isn't bad. We like the jelly.
