3 cups red bell pepper, finely chopped
1 cup green bell pepper, finely chopped
1/4 cup jalapeño pepper, finely chopped
1 cup apple cider vinegar
1 (1.75 ounce ) package SURE-JELL powder pectin*
5 cups white sugar
Begin by sterilizing six 8-ounce canning jars and lids according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Begin heating your water in a hot water canner for processing.
Place the red bell peppers, green bell peppers, and jalapeño peppers into a large saucepan over high heat. Mix in the apple cider vinegar and Sure-Jell pectin. Bring the mixture to a rolling boil while stirring constantly. Then, quickly stir in the sugar. Return to a boil and boil for one minute. Remove from the heat and skim off any foam.
Then, quickly ladle the jelly into your prepared jars, filling each to 1/4 inch from the top. Cover with flat lids; then screw on the bands tightly.
Place the jars into the canning rack, and slowly lower the jars into the canner. The water should cover the jars completely, and should be hot but not boiling. Bring water to a boil and process for five minutes.
Remove the jars and allow them to cool completely.
1½ cup finely chopped and seeded Red Bell Pepper
1 cup finely chopped and seeded Yellow Bell Pepper
1¼ cup finely chopped and seeded Green Bell pepper
¼ cup finely chopped and seeded Jalapeño
1 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
1.75oz package powdered pectin
5 cups sugar
6 8oz canning jars
Sterilize six 8oz canning jars and lids in boiling water.
Place all peppers in a large saucepan over high heat. Mix in vinegar and fruit pectin.
Stir constantly. Bring to a rolling boil. Remove from heat.
Add sugar and place back on high heat. Return to a rolling boil for one minute.
Remove from heat. Skim off any foam from top.
Ladle jelly evenly into sterile jars, filling to ¼ inch from top of jar. Cover with flat lids and screw on screw bands tight.
Place jars into canner with hot water that is not boiling. Water should completely cover jar. Cook on high heat to reach a boil. Process for 5 minutes, Remove from heat.
When jars are completely cooled, check seals by pressing centers of lids with finger. (If lid springs back, lid is not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.)
4 cups canned apple juice
Few drops red food coloring (optional)
1 box SURE-JELL Fruit Pectin
1/2 tsp. butter or margarine
5 cups sugar, measured into separate bowl
Bring boiling-water canner, half full with water, to simmer. Wash jars and screw bands in hot soapy water; rinse with warm water. Pour boiling water over flat lids in saucepan off the heat. Let stand in hot water until ready to use. Drain well before filling.
Measure juice into 6- or 8-qt. saucepot; add food coloring.
Stir pectin into juice in saucepot. Add butter to reduce foaming. Bring mixture to full rolling boil (a boil that doesn’t stop bubbling when stirred) on high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 1 min., stirring constatnly.
Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.
Ladle immediately into prepared jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with two-piece lids. Screw bands tightly. Place jars on elevated rack in canner. Lower rack into canner. (Water must cover jars by 1 to 2 inches. Add boiling water, if necessary.) Cover; bring water to gentle boil. Process 5 min. Remove jars and place upright on towel to cool completely. After jars cool, check seals by pressing middles of lids with finger. (If lids spring back, lids are not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.)
6 cups of smashed blueberries (you’ll need 8-10 cups of unsquashed berries to equal this amount)
4 cups sugar
3 tablespoons classic pectin powder
zest and juice of 1 lemon
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg
Prepare a canning pot and 3 pint jars. Place 3 lids in a small saucepan and bring to a bare simmer.
Pour the smashed berries into a low, wide, non-reactive pot. Measure out the sugar and whisk in the powdered pectin. Add the sugar and pectin mixture to the fruit and stir to combine.
Once the sugar is mostly dissolved, place the pot on the stove and bring to a boil. Cook at a controlled boil for 10 to 15 minutes, until the fruit begins to look thick and any foaming has begun to subside.
Add cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon zest and juice and let jam continue to cook until it passes the plate test, or until the drips hang off the spatula in thick, sticky rivulets.
Remove jam from heat and funnel into prepared jars. Wipe rims, apply lids and rings, and process in a boiling water bath canner for 10 minutes.
When time is up, remove jars from canner and place them on a folded kitchen towel to cool.
Once jars are cool enough to handle, remove rings and test seals.
Sealed jars can be stored on the pantry shelf for up to one year. Any unsealed jars should be refrigerated and used promptly.
