  • 1
    In a medium-sized pot combine the chili peppers, juice and vinegar. Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce the heat. Cover the pot and continue cooking over low heat for 15 minutes.
  • 2
    Add the sugar and return to a boil over high heat while stirring continuously. Next, add the pectin and let boil for one more minute. Last, turn off the heat and remove any leftover bubbles with a metal spoon.
  • 3
    Immediately pour the cooked chili pepper mixture into sterilized glass jars. Remember to leave at least 1/4 inch of space between the marmalade and the top of each jar. Finally, distribute the chili peppers evenly between the jars before closing and cleaning-up any excess jelly.
  • 4
    Boil a generous amount of water in a large pot. Then turn off the heat and transfer the closed jars to the hot water bath. Let sit for five minutes before removing; cool over a wire rack while the marmalade sets.
  • I recommend that you always use gloves while working with spicy peppers.

Expert Tips
