I was inspired to turn my Pickled Hot Peppers into jelly after a 15 mile bike ride to Winters, CA ended at a bar where I drank a cocktail with tequila, lime and jalapeño jelly. All the hot pepper jelly recipes I found added cider vinegar - exactly what pickled my peppers. I strained and pureed the hot peppers with some mild peppers, added a bit of sugar and pectin - and tequila cocktail here I come! My recipe is 2 oz tequila, 1 Tbsp jelly and 1/2 lime.
