Sometimes Jellies don’t set!

My second batch of Hot Pepper did not set. I normally give it 48 hours and if not set by then I re-process and add powdered pectin. This normally does the trick for jellies like this.

I finally got to try out the new stove and the power boil feature is amazing yet I found out that I can’t use it when processing the jar as one exploded from the heat 😦

Otherwise I was not completely happy with my kirby cucumbers that I got from Eastern Market as some got ripe real quick which might have been my fault in how I stored them but I will wait until my regular vendor from the local farm arrives before I buy anymore.
