Apricot-Jalapeņo Jelly

This recipe calls for apricots but peaches, nectarines, and pears work equally well. Any fresh green chile can also be substituted, depending on your heat preference. Serranos will make it hotter; roasted, peeled New Mexican chiles will tame it down.

1/2 cup 118mlJalapeņo peppers - stemmed, seeded
1 cup 237mlRed bell pepper - stemmed, seeded (large)
2 cups 474mlCider vinegar
1 1/2 cups 219g / 7.7ozDried apricots - chopped
6 cups 1188g / 41ozSugar
3 oz 85gLiquid pectin
4 splash  Red food color - (optional)

Put jalapeños, bell pepper, and vinegar in blender. Puree until coarsely ground and small chunks remain.  Combine apricots, sugar, and jalapeño/pepper/vinegar mixture in large saucepan. Bring to a boil. Boil rapidly, 5 minutes. Remove from heat; skim off any foam that forms.  Allow mixture to cool for 2 minutes. Then mix in pectin (and food coloring if you're going to use it).
