People have asked for the recipe and I have obliged. I've been told the jelly does not turn out like mine. Honestly, I give the exact recipe, so I don't know why that happens. I do add a lot of love while making mine because I think of those who enjoy it so much.
I don't have an abundance of cooking expertise, but I can make hot pepper jelly.
Because cayenne peppers can be elusive to find, I grow my own.
I have plants that I started from seeds purchased in Italy. But only a couple of plants did well this year. I supplemented those with plants I purchased that were supposed to be cayennes, but have turned out to be a different variety.
If anyone knows where I can purchase tiny, red, hot cayenne peppers, I will be grateful.
My co-worker Zack anticipates bushels of them will arrive once I get the word out.
I don't need that many. It takes 12 cayenne peppers for six jars of jelly. I had better make a bunch of jars if I can find those peppers. Then I will hope for a bumper crop next growing season.
