I get asked for this recipe everytime I take it anywhere. Hope you like it…..and it’s GREEN for St. Patty’s Day
Makes 6½ pints
10 jalapeno chilies, stems removed
2 large green bell peppers
1½ cups distilled vinegar
6 cups sugar
1/3 cup lemon juice
4 ounces liquid pectin
10 drops green food coloring
Place chilies and peppers in a blender and puree until finely chopped. Combine the puree and vinegar, bring to a boil over high heat, and boil rapidly for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove pan from heat and stir in sugar and lemon juice. Return pan to heat, bring to a boil again, stir in the pectin and food coloring and boil again, stirring constantly for 1 minute. Skim off foam and bottle in sterilized jars. Additional notes: Use gloves when handling the chilies. Don’t overcook. It will harden as it cools. About the hotness: it was nicely hot when made, and mellows over time. You could add 1 or 2 green habaneros to the ingredients if you want it hotter.
Suggested uses: serve the jelly over cream cheese, with crackers or use as a marinade for meat, and chicken, or grilled vegetables.
This is a fun St. Patty’s Day door hanger idea. Maybe for next year though since St. Patty’s Day is on Saturday.
Things you will need:
* Three different sizes of clovers with holes for hanging together with wire.
* Stain or Paint
* St. Patty’s Day Paper
* Raffia or Ribbon
* Mod Podge
* Distressing Ink
Paint or stain wood. Trace wood on pattern paper. Cut out paper and Mod Podge to wood. Distress wood and paper with distressing ink. String clovers together with wire. Make a wire hanger at the top. Tie raffia or ribbon in a bow and add to the top of the wire.
Print it, frame it, use it as a tag. You can find many ways to use this fun St. Patty’s Day printable.
Here’s a vintage St. Patrick’s Day image for you to use for cards, tags, framing, etc. Hope you enjoy it!
