Small Batch Canning for Working Moms - Jalapeno Pepper Jelly

Local, organically-grown green peppers and jalapeno
peppers from Wild Onion Farms, Johnston County

This past weekend, I gathered up my canning supplies and went to work on putting up a few jars of Jalapeno Pepper Jelly.  I had pepper jelly for the first time last year when one area business was sampling products made locally.  I like green peppers but had never imagined them in jelly form!  To my surprise, I loved it!  So while peppers are still plentiful at our farmers market, I thought I'd give canning some of my own pepper jelly a shot.   

Jars of pepper jelly ready for the pantry

I can't wait to enjoy a spoonful of pepper jelly on top of a cracker with some cream cheese!

Recipe Notes:  I used the Jalapeno Pepper Jelly Ball canning recipe found at the blog, Love Being In My Southern Kitchen.  I did not add green food coloring to my jelly - I love the natural green!
