This is a great spreadable chilli condiment, it goes wonderfully well with cold meats and cheese.
It’s sweet and spicy but if you don’t like things quite so hot then don’t include the chilli seeds.
If you want to keep this for any length of time you must store it in proper sterilised jam jars.
Hot and Sweet Chilli Jam
You will need
2 cloves – Garlic (chopped)
3 – Large Red Chillies (chopped)
1 – Medium Red Pepper (chopped)
300 Ml – Red Wine Vinegar
500 Gm – Jam Sugar
Put the chillies, pepper and garlic into a liquidiser and make a rough paste.
Dissolve the sugar in the vinegar on a low heat, don’t stir it just check that it has dissolved with a spoon.
Add the pepper and chilli mix and boil for 15 minutes.
Allow to cool for a while.
Then decant into whatever containers you decide to use now place it in the fridge to cool off.
Once cold it is ready to serve with cold meat or cheese or both, in fact anything else you fancy.
You could even add it to sauces for a bit of extra spice.
