Orange Jalapeno Jelly

Orange Jalapeno Jelly

2 to 3 fresh jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
1 (4 ounce) jar pimentos, drained well
5 tablespoons minced green bell pepper
1 1/2 cups freshly squeezed orange juice
1 cup white wine vinegar
6 1/2 cups granulated sugar
3 (3 ounce) packages liquid fruit pectin

Combine all ingredients except pectin in large kettle or Dutch oven. Stir well. Bring to a hard rolling boil, and boil 1 minute, stirring constantly.

Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes. Skim foam from top with metal spoon.
Add pectin and stir well.

Quickly ladle into hot, sterilized half-pint jars, leaving 1/4-inch headspace. Wipe rims of jars with damp cloth; cover at once with metal lids and screw bands; seal tightly.

Process filled jars in hot water bath, or refrigerate immediately after cooling. Turn jars frequently during cooling to distribute pepper evenly throughout jelly.

Makes 6 half-pint jars.
