Peach Pepper Jelly Recipe

This post may contain affiliate links. See my disclosure policy for more details.

We had a surplus of peppers in the garden so I decided to give pepper jelly a try. Our local orchard had beautiful peaches that I thought would complement the peppers well. This turned out to be a wonderful sweet and sour jelly with a little spice. It perfect served over cream cheese with a side of crackers!

    Hi Renae! I love this recipe, but I don’t need 7 half pints! lol. Is there a way to convert the ingredients down to where I need them (I’m only making 2 PINTS). This will make a great Christmas gift for my father and brother in laws that LOVE hot stuff!

    • Malinda Eichelbrenner says:

      Also, is there another process aside from a water bath canner? I have a stove top and pot, I have a large crockpot, and I have a sink that can obviously hold hot water.

    • Hi Malinda,
      You could try cutting the recipe in half and that would make almost 2 pints (7 half pints is just 3 pints and one half pint). A water bath canner is only necessary if you want a shelf stable item. If you are planning on eating it within a week or two, it will be fine stored in the fridge. Otherwise, a very large pot could work as long as it covered the jars completely. You want to bowl the jars for 10 minutes to create a vacuum seal in order to be shelf stable. Hope that helps!

  3. Is this jelly supposed to be thin? I followed the recipe and used the Liquid Pectin but after 14 hours sitting on my table it still looks thin/moves around in jar. Im not sure what I did wrong, but it is my first time using the Liquid Pectin

  4. I do like the manner in which you have framed this particular issue
    plus it does provide us a lot of fodder for thought.
    Nonetheless, from just what I have experienced,
    I basically trust when the actual opinions pile on that people keep
    on point and don’t get started on a tirade regarding some other news of the
    day. All the same, thank you for this outstanding point
    and though I can not necessarily agree with the idea in totality, I respect your

  5. This jelly did not set up, way to thin. Followed directions exactly:( disappointing

  6. So I tried pepper jelly that had pineapple in it. It was so good with cream cheese. So how much pineapple would you suggest using in your recipe. Thanks!

    • Hi LaDonna,
      Sorry for the late reply. I’m not certain how much pineapple you would use. With canning recipes, it’s important to keep the ingredients in check so that they preserve properly. Therefore, I’m not comfortable making a substitution recommendation. Maybe google a pineapple pepper jelly recipe. Good luck!

  7. Made this and it was delicious. Used all red jalapenos and bells for an extra bright color. I know from making jalapeno jelly from another recipe that if you throw all the jalapenos and vinegar in a food processor and pulse it about ten times, it chops it up beautifully. Doesn’t work as well for the bells, though. Saves a ton of time!
