how to make easy chilli jam recipe
chilli jam

Ingredients :

8 red peppers, deseeded and roughly chopped
10 red chillies, roughly chopped
finger-sized piece fresh root ginger, peeled and roughly chopped
8 garlic cloves, peeled
400g can cherry tomatoes
750g golden caster sugar
250ml red wine vinegar

Method :

Tip the peppers, chillies (with seeds), ginger and garlic into a food processor, then whizz until very finely chopped. Scrape into a heavy-bottomed pan with the tomatoes, sugar and vinegar, then bring everything to the boil. Skim off any scum that comes to the surface, then turn the heat down to a simmer and cook for about 50 mins, stirring occasionally

Once the jam is becoming sticky, continue cooking for 10-15 mins more, stirring frequently so that it doesn�t catch and burn. It should now look like thick, bubbling lava. Cool slightly, transfer to sterilised jars, then leave to cool completely. Keeps for 3 months in a cool, dark cupboard � refrigerate once opened
