Happy December 1st!
It's practically Christmas. :-)
So my mom calls me last week and says, "I know what we can give as gifts this year instead of cookies."
I ask, "What?"
She says, "Red pepper jelly!"
Now I'm thinking I have NEVER seen her make jelly (or eat jelly) but I think she wanted something for us to do together so I say I'm in. Then she says, "Great! Now where do I get the jars and what's pectin?"
Uh-oh. I really thought this was not the makings of a good start, but we got together this past weekend and made some and it was relatively easy. And thanks to me and my particular attention to sanitization, I can assure any receivers of this jelly that it will be safe to eat. LOL
And here is the final product:
Now I just have to get some labels and ribbon and VOILA! I can give these out to co-workers, teachers, and neighbors.
I can't wait to try it myself on some baked brie.
Have you ever made jelly? Do you give homemade items as gifts for Christmas?
Have a great week!
