Looking for a canning recipe to make a hot pepper jelly from assorted CSA peppers

I have tons of jalapenos, cayenne, hungarian hot wax, serranos and a few habaneros. Does anyone have a reciple to convert all of these into a nice hot jelly to eat with cheese/eggs/crackers? I was hoping to can them...

I have a cousin's recipe from Georgia, where I first met hot pepper jelly, which is similar to that of Sexy Lamb Chopx (26% pepper to sugar, where here is 21%), but there's one from Gourmet April 1993 which uses about double the peppers (52%) and more pectin. Haven't made that one yet, but it looks interesting.

Thank you! I managed to successfully jelly these. I ended up using: minced deseeded chillies (~1 lb) + apple cider vinegar (5-6 cups) + sugar (~6 cups) + pectin. I used green apples as a pectin source (for this recipe, I used 6 apples -- peels and all). It turned out a wonderfully light red color and is just about hot enough to snack with cheese. Should have worn gloves though, my hands were burning from handling the chillies.

Thanks! I am a fan of the green apple pectin. I've found this formula to be roughly right: ~1 cup pectin/lb of green apples and ~1 cup pectin/3 pints (or less) of jam or jelly. If you have more than 3 pints, then add extra 3/4 cup of pectin for every additional pint of jam.
