Apricot Jalapeno Jelly
I used their Pepper Jelly recipe, but instead of any green pepper, I split the amount with red bell pepper and dried apricots. It's good, and more of a mild pepper jelly recipe. I made 4 perfect 1/2 pints of jelly.
Next, I'll make a Hot Pepper Jelly. One with a bit more heat to it. This is my first year canning pepper jellies.
I did a lot of researching on the Internet, and many reviews stated that the recipes requiring 2 cups of cider had too much. The Ball Jam recipe book required 2/3 cup for 4 - 1/2 pints.
