How to make acerola jelly with pepper:
To make this acerola jelly, start by placing the acerola and sugar in a pan. Cook over medium-low heat until the fruit melts and is very soft.
Tip: Use very ripe acerola so that your jelly is very red.
Pass the mixture through a sieve, to filter the seeds from the acerola, and return with the pulp to the pan. Add the seedless and finely chopped peppers and cook over low heat for 1 hour or until thickened the way you like it.
After the previous step your acerola jelly with pepper is ready! Place while still warm in tightly closed sterilized jars and store in a dark place.
