I made some red (hot) pepper jelly (the kind that you spread over cream cheese for a fast appetizer) a couple of days ago. I followed the directions exactly - it called for 2 1/2 pouches of Certo, 1 1/2 cups of cider vinegar, 3 red bell peppers, 6 1/2 cups of sugar and cayenne. I carefully sterilized my jars/lids. After it all cooled, the mixture inside appears to be "runny" and not congealed like jelly should be. Should I throw this all out and start over? Should I have used 3 pouches of Certo instead of the 2 1/2? Thank you!
