    Default Sugar Free Pepper Jelly

    Have you ever tryed to find a sugar free pepper jelly recipe online? Sugar added recipes are everywhere but I wanted to try some with no sweetner. I looked around for a while one day and couldn't find one, not even on a diabetic web site. So I decided to shoot from the hip and experiment with what I thought should work. And it did. The jelly came out jelled, not too hard and not to soft and the peppers are still in one piece in the jars after processing.



    4 cups chopped peppers
    1 1/2 cups apple cider vinegar
    2 cups apple juice
    2 tbsp lemon juice
    1 1.75 oz. package no-sugar fruit pectin

    That recipe makes 6 half pints. I used red, orange and yellow bell peppers, for color, and jalapenos. I just added bell peppers to the mix till it looked right to me. Boil, slowly ,all the ingreients but the pectin for 5 minutes to soften the peppers. Add the pectin bring to a rolling boil for 1 minute. Hot pack into jars and process in a water bath canner for 10 minutes.

    Tell us how it tastes.

    Did you put a paraffin seal on it?

    No parafin seal on it Okie. Its canned with the typical hardware.

    The flavor is great with no sugar to distract from the peppers. Its hotter than hell, coming from a guy without a high tolerence to hot peppers. I really like the flavor of peppers but after two bites of this stuff on toast, my head is sweating and I got flames jumping out of my......mouth. But it makes my mouth water just thinking about it.

    Couldn't you use a Splenda or other sugar substitute in place of the sugar too?? I understand you were after a sugar free recipe, but I picked up on the diabetic sites not having what you were after.

    Im not diabetic but I got friends who are that might like it. We have been trying to avoid sugar for the most part, as a change in lifestyle to help get to a healthyer weight. Not cutting it out completly just avoiding adding it to most things. Definetly not thin but I have put a new nothch in my belt in the last 6 months, just by avoiding sugar and fat.

    Artificial sweetners seem to have an off flavor that I dont want. The peppers taste great without it.

    Thanks for your interest.
