    How much does this recipe make? I like to can in 250 ml jars and I want to make sure I have enough jars. Help! We made it last year and it was fantastic, but we don't remember how much it made.

    Do you not actually use the red pepper, only the 1 cup of juice?

    Easy to use recipe. I used 6 large red peppers and got 4 batches out of it - I did add a couple of spoonfuls of the pulp to each cup of red pepper juice as well as 1 tsp of dried red pepper flakes to each batch. Great for Christmas gifts.
