    recipe-help Looking for an easy, simple jelly recipe

    I'm in search of a simple and easy to make jelly recipe to use up my frozen pods. Preferably one that doesn't require vinegar (mainly b/c I am too lazy to go look or apple cider vinegar).   That said, if it must use vinegar, has anyone ever made a jelly that used rice vinegar?   Thanks!

    I have some friends skiing over in Dillon right now and they are on the hunt for ghost pepper cheese. They'll be heading in to Denver soon.

    I have one ferment going and things are looking promising. My problem with kahm yeast has been resolved and there is plenty of bubbling, but I am curious if it's necessary to keep pushing the pepper mash back down into the liquid or if it will eventually sink again and start the process over?
