Default Pepper Jellies

It is a nice problem to have when your garden is so productive you have to find new ways to use vegetables. My hot peppers are loaded. I made 5 batches of pepper jelly with 5 varieties of hot peppers - golden habaneros, yellow fatali, kambuzi, Thai prik with rosemary powder, and Hot Lemon. A very nice sweet burn on goat's cheese.

That's some good looking jelly!

I use it warmed up and thinned a little for a rib glaze and it's very good.

very nice. I would guess the Fatali jelly is nice and fruity like the pepper, smells like citrus to me.

Nice jellies!!!



If you still have way too many, you could always make jellied candies, like soft gumdrops, rolled in sugar so they don't stick together. Sort of like orange slices, but softer, think SunKist used to make them. Talk about a big surprise kicker of a taste!!!

Absolutely beautiful. I had some hot pepper jelly and cream cheese on crackers at a party last year and I really liked it.

Scott your pepper jellies came out nice and clear. How did you extract the pepper essence to get it so clear?

I simply chopped them finely in a food processor, and add them to the sugar and vinegar. I did not deseed or any do anything else.

Your jellies look fabulous.

Interesting to see how you label your jelly. as a marketer in Ohio we have to label with our name and address and all of our ingredients along with a "this is a home produced item"... and fit it all on a label with at least 9pt. font.

It is just for family, but I have a brand: Eden's Sting. My antebellum home is called Eden, since you know that we Southerners love to name our houses as if we lived on a grand estate.

Monticello is one of the most famous antebellum homes in the US.
I cant find hardly anyone that can identify it or the person on the US nickle.
With Jefferson on the front and Monticello on the back.
I wonder if he made pepper jelly?
