Hands down, I give it to bell peppers for the best summer veggie. They are so incredibly versatile, and are delicious raw, grilled, roasted or sizzled in a skillet! I use them year round, but they are particularly at their peak this time of year. That’s why I love the idea of canning them for use months down the line, when I’m craving a sandwich with a little kick, or need a quick appetizer for last-minute company. The wonders that a toasted baguette, spreadable cheese and a dollop of hot pepper jelly can do!

The steps to your own Hot Pepper Jelly are simple and quick. Just grab four of the best bell peppers you can find. I chose green, yellow, red, and orange for color variety. They should be firm and glossy, with a healthy stem, no bruises. Then, find some fresh jalapenos. While you’re grocery shopping, might as well pick up a baguette and your favorite spreadable cheese (goat cheese, cream cheese, and Boursin are all good options) to enjoy with your jelly!

Now comes the fun part – creating your homemade hot pepper jelly! Roughly chop your peppers then place into a large, heavy bottomed pot. Cover with sugar and pour in a couple cups of apple cider vinegar. Heinz® Apple Cider Vinegar is really great in this recipe, because its mildness adds just the right amount of tang to the crisp, sweet bell peppers and spicy jalapenos. I love using their all-natural vinegar for preserving my peppers to perfection. It is made from sun-ripened corn, sweet apples and the finest grapes. This vinegar has been my longtime favorite for many years, and for many uses!

Once your peppers have begun to boil in the mixture, add your powdered pectin. The pectin will help the mixture set to a jelly-like consistency once it cools completely. Pour the peppers and liquid into your sterilized jars (instructions are included in the recipe), and let cool to room temperature on your countertop before refrigerating and using as a spread.

You cannot go wrong with this scrumptious, simple combination of tangy, spicy-sweet flavor in a convenient little jar.
