Mexican Jam
Recipe By : Judy Howle
Serving Size : 30 Preparation Time: 1:00

4 or more jalapeno peppers seeded and chopped
1 1/3 cups canned apple juice
2 tablespoons vinegar
4 cups sugar
1 pouch liquid pectin
6 drops green food coloring as desired
1/2 tsp. butter or margarine

Sterilize 4 pt. or 8 half-pint jars by boiling 10 minutes. Heat lids and let stand in hot water until ready to use.

Prepare peppers. Place peppers and vinegar into large saucepan. Measure sugar into separate bowl. Stir sugar into above mixture; mix well. Add 1/2 tsp. butter or margarine. Bring to a full rolling boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Open Certo® and quickly pour contents into pan. Pour in food coloring. Bring to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly.

Remove from heat. Skim off any foam. Fill jars immediately to 1/8" from top of jar. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover quickly with lids. Screw the bands on tightly.

Invert jars for 5 minutes, then turn upright.

After 1 hr. check seals, or use water bath method. Process in boiling water bath for 15 minutes; no need to sterilize jars first.
