Strawberry Jalapeño Jam

10 June, 2012

ImageChop 4 cups of strawberries

Mince about a cup of jalapeños.

Then have jalapeño fingers all freakin’ day because you didn’t wear gloves.

Toss in 7 cups of sugar. (Mmmmm…sugar)

Image

(Looking at this made me want to make candied jalapeños).

Cook it until the sugar melts, then run the submersible blender through it. If you don’t have a submersible blender – or if you (unlike me) are capable of planning ahead, you can mash the strawberries before cooking them.

Once the sugar melts, add a package of pectin and do the usual jam thing – boil the hell out of it for a couple of minutes, toss into sterile jars and process for 10 minutes.

It’s freaking DELICIOUS! I don’t know that I’ll go back to straight jalapeño jelly. The kids don’t like it, but they are wusses.
