pepper jelly won't jell

happygoluckyinoregon | Aug 16, 2013 06:53 PM

I have twice had my bell pepper/jalapeno pepper refuse to jell when using the various recipes and the exact recipes and Sure-Jell called for. I'm not sure what is wrong ( i have drained them also to reduce liquid). I tried putting some Xantham gum in the mixture but its not working either. My next move is to dump it all back in the pot and add more pectin, but I hate to do that.

Does anyone know why this keeps happening. I used 3 cups of bell peppers and 1 cup of jalapeno, 1 cup of cider vinegar and 5 cups or sugar. To this, I added 1 package of pectin, according to the recipes and its not working.
