The easiest way we use pepper jelly most often is to just pour it over cream cheese and serve it on a tray with our favorite crackers.  Mixing the pepper jelly in cream cheese and serving it as a dip is also delish.  You can also glaze meat with it!  I have served it over fried shrimp with rice on the side and it tastes amazing!  Glazing chicken wings with it is another way my husband loves eating pepper jelly.  The possibilities are endless and, I’m sure, you’ll find your own favorite way to use this super easy and delicious recipe.

  • 1 Large Red Bell Pepper seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 Large Green Bell Pepper seeded and finely chopped
  • 4 whole Jalapeno Peppers seeded and chopped
  • 3/4 cup Apple Cider
  • 1/2 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 3 cups Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 pkg Certo Fruit Pectin


  1. Mix the red pepper, green pepper, and jalapeños with sugar and salt in the instant pot and let them sit for 30 minutes.

  2. Add the Apple cider and vinegar.

  3. Close instant pot and press pressure valve to the sealed position and set on manual for 2 minutes.

  4. Release pressure naturally for at 10-15 minutes then quick release and remove the top.

  5. Using a  hand mixer or a potato masher, mix/mash mixture until desired consistency.  I leave the pieces of pepper in my pepper jelly.  The peppers are soft and don't need to be mashed.  

  6. Turn Instant Pot to 'saute' function and allow the pepper jam to come to a simmer/boil.

  7. Add your pectin and stir to combine.

  8. Simmer for 2-3 minutes or until slightly thickened.

  9. Turn pot off and allow mixture to cool and then pour into jars.  ENJOY!

  3. I’m getting ready to make this but just have a question. After putting the pepper jelly in the jars, do you need to process them in the insta pot. And by shelf life of 1 year I’m assuming it doesn’t need to be refrigerated. Thanks 😊
