I put all of the vinegar (I used apple cider vinegar) in with the peppers and onion and added a box of pectin. I brought it to a full rolling boil and added the sugar and boiled it for another 2 minutes and then kept it on a very low temperature for a few minutes while I waited for my water bath to be ready. I processed it for 10 minutes and it set up just fine.

This recipe did not jell at all. I think some ingredients are missing. There is no pectin listed--I added 6 oz of liquid pectin and it still didn't jell. The taste is good but they won't make very good gifts since they aren't really jelly.
