Hot Pepper Jam {Food Session}

The recipe for hot pepper jam, as I've had quite a few people ask for this! And some pics to accompany the recipe. I made two batches of this today, one red and one green. I used green peppers and hot green peppers (hotter than jalapenos) and then red peppers and hot red peppers (also, mega hot!) If using fresh peppers, you would want to remove the seeds first, as the seeds add even more heat. I was given my peppers from my sister who chopped them up last year and then froze them, seeds intact. So my version is really hot! Also, for my red pepper version I used apple cider vinegar instead of white vinegar. But I'm sure either would work. Enjoy!

Hot Pepper Jam:
2 1/2 c. green peppers (i actually had 1 c green and 1 1/2 c hot green peppers)
1 1/2 c. white vinegar
7 1/2 c. sugar
few drops of green food coloring

remove seeds and finely chop your peppers. mix peppers, vinegar, sugar and food coloring over heat and bring to boil. boil for 6 minutes.

1 - 6 oz packet liquid certo

add certo and continue boiling for 3 more minutes. remove from heat and continue stirring an additional 4 minutes. pour into freezer safe containers. let sit on counter at least 24 hours. then transfer to freezer. enjoy!
