Instructions

  2. Remove seeds from green pepper and chiles Be very careful with chiles - don't touch your eyes. Some people do this with disposable plastic gloves on.
  3. Fit the steel knife blade into the bowl. Chop green pepper into 1/4-inch pieces. Measure 1/2 cup. Reserve remainder for another purpose.
  4. Chop jalapenos into 1/4 inch pieces. Measure 1/4 cup for jelly.

  7. If you want to use this as a jelly, then strain mixture through a fine strainer to remove pieces of peppers. OTHERWISE, LEAVE AS IS.
