Ingredients:

  • 1 lb of bacon, diced
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 cup of apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup of jalapeno peppers, diced
  • 1/2 cup of red bell peppers, diced
  • 1/2 cup of green bell peppers, diced
  • 1/4 cup of lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon of liquid smoke
  • 2 teaspoons of sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder
  • 1 package of pectin
  • 4 cups of granulated sugar

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your grill or smoker to medium heat.
  2. In a large skillet or cast iron pan, cook the diced bacon until it is crispy. Remove the bacon from the pan and place it on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess grease.
  3. In a large saucepan, combine the water, apple cider vinegar, jalapeno peppers, red bell peppers, green bell peppers, lemon juice, liquid smoke, sea salt, black pepper, cumin, paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally.
  4. Once the mixture has come to a boil, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk together the pectin and sugar until well combined.
  6. Add the bacon to the saucepan with the pepper mixture and stir to combine. Then slowly whisk in the pectin and sugar mixture until it is fully incorporated.
  7. Turn the heat up to high and bring the mixture to a rolling boil, stirring constantly. Boil for 1 minute, then remove from heat.
  8. Ladle the bacon jelly into sterilized jars and let cool to room temperature.
  9. Once cooled, store the jars in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
