Hot Red Pepper Jelly

Hot Red Pepper Jelly Recipe

My Hot Red Pepper Jelly recipe is one that I used to make about once a year. It has now become a twice and now three times a year recipe. I make the batch, store it in mason jars, and give it away in mason jars to my dinner party guests.


This Hot Red Pepper Jelly goes perfect with Kerry Gold: Dubliner Cheese and Buttery Town House Crackers.
 You can find it in the cheese sections of most grocery stores for about $5.00. I buy the cheese in bulk is at BJ’s Wholesale or Costco where you can get 5x’s the amount for just a few more dollars. If you think it’s too much cheese, try this Hot Red Pepper Jelly and you will soon realize that the bulk Dubliner size  goes super fast.
