2 very large sweet red peppers
3 jalapeno peppers
1 cup raw apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 cups erythritol
3/4 tsp sea salt
3 Tbsp no sugar needed pectin powder

Roast all peppers, making sure the skins are charred. Place in a covered dish or paper bag to sweat for about 15 minutes. Rinse off pepper skins. Place peppers in a food processor and pulse. Cook peppers in vinegar and add erythritol and salt. Slowly add pectin while stirring. Bring to a boil that can't be stirred down. Hot pack and water bath can.

Yeah you can use actual sugar. The recipe I modified called for sugar.

I have never had that. It is sweet and hot though. Not overly sweet though. It tastes REALLY good with cream cheese on either a jicama slice or wheat thin.

I use mine on egg rolls and the home made chicken nuggets.. I often buy red jalapenos by the 1/4 bushel and we smoke them for chipotle but if I could make a good 12 or so pints of this instead of buying it I would be happy!

Thanks! That looks great! I was going to just add garlic to any sweet hot recipe that I found... I do wonder how it will do with fresh red chilis(of any type) as compared to dry flakes?
Maybe I will just dice fine my hot peppers(and a few sweet ones too to round out the flavors) and pour the hot syrup/garlic over the tops and then process in the hot water bath. Kinda like I make my sweet onion relish.. Found that the veggies stay a bit "crunchier" if I jut pour the hot liquids over the chopped veg and then process. Doesn't seem to affect the product sealing either..
I may break down and try a siracha type some year too... we must go thru 3 of the big bottles a year.. and a gallon of franks red hot... Serious chili heads in the family.. even the three year old eats the pepper cheese and has to have hot sauce(lightly tho) on her tacos.

1/4 cup finely minced fresh garlic (Peel and mince your own garlic, please. Pre-minced garlic in jars just isnt good enough for this recipe.)
1/2 Tablespoon Kosher salt
3 cups cider vinegar
3 cups granulated white sugar
1/4 cup (less if your heat tolerance is lower) crushed red pepper flakes

Gonna halve the recipe... Can I get away with dropping MOST of that sugar? Like 1 cup of honey?
