Mango and Habernero Pepper Jelly

Amazingly sweet and spicy, pepper jelly.

We have been making this particular pepper jelly for a few years now, but the past 2 summers were not kind to us on bearing fruit…this year we have a super huge batch of spicy Habernero’s!

I think its one of the best pepper jelly recipes out there, it is quite sweet, but with a really good blend of heat on the palate. Goes great with crackers, cheese or whatever you want to add a teaspoon of it on! Very easy to make, but be careful, these peppers are hot, so be sure sure to wear plastic gloves when you are chopping them, do not touch your eyes! Please enjoy…
