How many women wait til they are 62 to make jelly for the first time ? Count me in!
When we were in Victoria we had dinner at the home of Paul's cousin and wife. She served a lovely jelly with the chicken main dish and after I got home I decided I'd like to have some on hand. I truly expected a brand name product I could buy at any grocery store, but instead received a recipe. Oh well!
When I told Margaret at exercise class about it she asked for the recipe and very nicely gifted me with a jar when it was done.
Seeing as she wasn't going to keep me supplied and knowing I could use her as a helpline, I bravely set out to make my own.
I bought the red peppers
I cleaned and chopped. I measured carefully. I followed the recipe along with Margaret's helpful hints and................
I have 3 jars of my own, that I made. I'm impressed with me, very impressed.
Red Pepper Relish is:
2 cups red peppers
¾ cup white vinegar
1 box Certo crystals
Stir the above until boiling.
Add 3 cups white sugar and boil hard for 1-2 minutes (stirring) until it comes to a full rolling boil.
Put in sterilized jars and seal. You do not have to process. Can double recipe.
I used 3 peppers to make up the 2 cups. I had bought 7 ,the store had a good sale and I had no idea how many I would need, and will chop and freeze enough to make a second batch later. I think if I throw them in the pot still frozen it might work. Worth a try.
