“Dreamgoddess needed a pepper peach jelly for a recipe she wanted to try, but none could be found in our small town. This is what I came up with. Just remember that for hotter jelly, cut the habaneros in half so that the heat can escape better or add another whole pepper. For less heat, use peppers that are not quite as hot. For just plain peach jelly, leave off the pepper all together.”
5-6 half pints
