    I am wondering if you have a sweet red cherry and jalapeno jam recipe? I can’t wait to try your pineapple pepper jam recipe!
    Thank you

    Hi Sue,

    My fiancé and I made this jalapeño pepper jelly but we canned it and it didn’t thicken up! We made it in the canner because we don’t have enough freezer room. Do you have any idea as why they didn’t gel? It made 7 half-pints.

    Thank you.

    Made my version last week. Will try your recipe the next time. It is soooooooo good! Love it with cottage cheese. Sounds like a weird combination but it works.

    A good pepper jelly is a MUST in my refrigerator. They are great as simple spreads, but I also use them as glaze starters or as a quick topping for grilled foods. I love this collection of recipes!

    Yum! I can make a meal on cream cheese (or goat cheese), pepper jelly and crackers! Thanks so much for including our pineapple pepper jelly in this lovely collection :)

    Since we unofficially “met” on the weekend, I wanted to respond to this post. Talk about perfect color and flavor explosions…the jalepeno jams are all so beautiful, but I’ve never seen anything like the Rosé Wine Hot Pepper Jelly. All of a sudden I’m planning a bridal or baby shower with jars of that as the main element – for food and decoration! The second one I’ll try is your Hot Pepper Cranberry Jam. Just found a bag of frozen cranberries that needs using before fall arrives. Thanks for bringing us along on your preserving adventure!

    1) Do you know if Sure Jell is vegetarian? If not, is there a good substitute that is vegetarian?
    2) You mention goat and cream cheese for these hot jellies…….are there any specially delightful combinations that you would recommend ? Like which different cheeses with which of your hot jellies?
    thank you for your help.

      Yes, Sure Jell is vegetarian/vegan. And really, Mino, I have never met a hot pepper jam or jelly that didn’t go great with cream cheese or creamy goat cheese, for a little more tang. They’re also great with triple cream, Brie, and Camembert.

    I also do Raspberry and Blueberry pepper jelly. I think the combination of any berries with the peppers is awesome.

      I’ve been planning to make a raspberry hot pepper jam all summer, but I’ve never heard of blueberry, that sounds interesting!
