Orange Pepper Jelly

Here in Colorado, we're thinking about starting our gardens, specifically peppers. This recipe is a sweet and spicy addition to toast, cream cheese and crackers, or even mixed with your favorite vegetable (delicious on green beans!). Our version is mildly spicy, but if you like it hot, increase the number of habanero peppers.
