  • juice the mix through a food mill & a gauze strainer
  • measure up the strained juice & pour it back into the cleaned pot
  • each 500 ml juice needs 450 g jam sugar, add the measured up amount of sugar into the pot
  • stir permanently by low temperature till the sugar is melted
  • come to boil & 3 min cook at a rapid boil till the mass starts to thicken
  • let it cool down for about 5 min & skim the foam which may arise
  • if you like it hot, mix in the remaining chilies
  • fill in warm, sterilised (put them for 10 min in an oven by 134 degree) jars & cover with parchment paper
  • if the jelly has cooled down, the jars can be closed by a screw-on lid & store cool

look, smell & go for the show
