Ingredients for Pineapple Jalapeno Jelly

  • 1 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 package Powdered Pectin

Detailed Steps to Make Strawberry Jalapeno Jelly

Rinsing strawberries for strawberry jalapeno jelly

Finely chop the strawberries and peppers in a food processor. If you touch the inside of the hot peppers, wear gloves.  This jalapeno corer works great! Add all of the chopped ingredients to a large pot.

Add the vinegar and pectin to the pot, stir well, heat on high heat and bring to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly.

Add the 5 cups of sugar. I usually measure the 5 cups of sugar into a bowl and have it ready to add. Stir well, bring back to a full boil and boil for 1 minute.

Remove from heat and skim off foam. Ladle the hot jelly into jars, using a canning funnel. Leave a 1/4 inch headspace.

Ladling strawberry jalapeno jelly into jars

Wipe the rim of the jar with a damp rag, remove the air bubbles and add the lids. Add the canning jars to the boiling water bath and process jars at a hard boil for 10 minutes. I use the Ball electric water bath canner and love it.

Remove the hot jars from the hot water bath after the processing time with a jar lifter and place jars on a kitchen towel on the counter. Do not disturb for 24 hours.
