Jalapeño Jelly

Hi have a ton of jalapeño peppers from my garden and I am looking for ways to use them. I was thinking of making a jalapeño jelly. Does anyone have a good recipe? My jalapeños are seriously lacking in the heat dept so I am guessing I can add some cayenne to spice it up a bit. Thanks in advance for any great recipe suggestions you might have :)

Here's the hot one:

Jalapeno Pepper Jelly

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 pair rubber gloves
3/4 pound jalapeno peppers (about 35) -- washed, stemmed, halved lengthwise
2 cups cider vinegar -- 5% acidity on label
6 cups sugar
2 3 oz. pouches liquid pectin
10 drops green food coloring

Use gloves! In food processor, blend peppers and 1 cup vinegar until smooth. In 6 to 8 qt. pan, combine sugar, pepper mixture and remaining cup vinegar. Bring mixture to a full rolling boil (a boil that cannot be stirred down), stirring constantly.

Boil hard 10 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in liquid pectin. Return to full rolling boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add food coloring. Skim foam if needed. Fill sterile half pint jars. Wipe tops of jars and threads. Put hot lids on and seal. Turn upside down for less than 5 minutes then turn. Process in boiling water bath 5 minutes.

NOTES : Very hot jelly; best served on Ritz crackers with cream cheese.
