I'm making hot pepper jelly for some of my holiday gifts.This is wonderful pored over a brick of cream cheese and served with a variety of crackers.I found a recipe for corn cobb jelly which I will be making soon,this is just too different to pass up,they say it tastes like honey and apples.Does anyone else have any different jellies that they would like to share?

I just made some yummy crabapple jelly.  It is bright red and slightly sour.  Perfect for the holidays I decided.   Debi

I made apple jam once, but it didn't set right so I ended up using it as a topping for ham when I baked it.  It was yummy!

I haven't made the jellies as yet, but I found a few recipes I thought would make nice gifts such as Apple Pie jam made with added spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg and mace.  Another one I want to try is mint jelly and one called habanero apricot jam.  I always include something homemade when I send the boxes off to the kids.  Bakery1

I'm trying a new jelly today,I made two apple pies and instead of throwing out the peels and cores,you can boil them and strain and make apple jelly.I found the recipe on a different site and thought that was a great way to use everything and besides all the vitamins and minerals are in the peels.

These sound like unique alternatives to standard fruit jellies and would make memorable gifts.  Mary Ann S.

They all sound delicious!  I've never attempted to make jelly.  Have done a lot of other things, but never made jelly.

Wineberry Jelly is Delicious!  Wineberries are ripe about the same time as raspberries and turn the color of red wine.   Mmm!

It would be so nice if we all lived in the same area and could swap and share our goodies.I always remember two of the elderly ladies that live on my street,one is 98 and the other 102+,both just appreciate someone just thinking of them.My other two neighbors,who are much closer to my age have been sending food back and forth for 28 years now.

Hi Janice D.Here's the hot pepper jelly recipe : 6 1/2 cups of sugar ,1 1/2 cups of apple cider vinegar ,3-5 Hungarian hot peppers I did remove the seeds and chopped the peppers fine. One green bell pepper, One red bell pepper both chopped fine. One pouch of certo liquid jell. I add 3 drops of green food color for mild and 3 drops of red food color for hot.You can also use any type of hot pepper I just happened to have the Hungarian hot peppers on hand.            Place sugar and vinegar in a large sauce pan bring to a hard boil watch so it doesn't boil over add the peppers and cook for 2 minutes.Remove from hear and add the certo and food coloring stir for 10 minutes and pour into sterile jelly jars. Yeild: 6 half pint or 3 pint jars.I processed in hot water bath for 5 minutes.I had a little left so I put it in a container in the fridge,but before you know it I started sampling and  then there really wasn't much left. This is awesome served over a brick of cream cheese and served with a variety of crackers.Also good brushed on grilled chicken or even pork . I hope you try this,I'm sure you'll enjoy it. Happy Holidays to you.

Nancy , this is the first year that I have canned jelly ,I've made freezer jam and that is really good,no cooking.I have canned other things but like I say ,first time for jelly.It should come out find.Good Luck I started making my own ricotta cheese which is so much better than store bought.Just exploring different things,it's fun.
