The thing that inspires most of my recipes is getting an item that I don't know what to do with and trying to cobble together to use it up. With this one, my brother giving me several jalapeno green peppers was the beginning. Fortunately for me, my husband is a willing guinea pig for my experiments! -Karen Bunzow, Saginaw, Michigan

I like it just the way it was going to try it

I have made four batches of this recipe and it is outstanding. I used cranberry rasperry juice in two of them and substituted habenero peppers instead. My next batch will be cranberry blackberry using habaneros and then cranberry pomegranate. yum yum!

Forgot to tell you, instead of 3 cups juice, use 2 cups and 1 cup of canned or frozen whole cranberries. Gives it a little more texture and can be used to based your ham or turkey too.

Instead of the green Jalapeno Peppers, use any kind of RED hot peppers and leave some of the seeds with them. Big difference, and you can use a 1/2 to 1 cup as you like it. Also, you don't have to use any kind of food coloring since the red peppers wont clash with the red cranberry. ( better for you that way, all natural) I just made 51 (16oz) jars at different heat stages (mild hot to slap your moma hot) and still have demand for more. Great stocking stuffer.

MY REVIEW

I can a lot and thought this recipe sounded excellent along with the fact it was a contest winner. I was surprised to find it didn't have quite enough of the jalapeño flavor. Could be me, but I was expecting a bite to it. Still very good though...
