Strawberry-Jalapeno Jam

 

Here is my recipe for Strawberry-Jalapeno jam. Strawberry jalapeno jam can be used on cream cheese and served with crackers. As well as a marinade for chicken. You can even use it as an out of the ordinary ice cream topping!

  • 3 1/2 cups strawberries (crushed) (Fresh or frozen)
  • 9 whole jalapeno peppers (finely chopped)
  • 1 box fruit pectin
  • 1/2 tsp margarine or butter ((to reduce foaming))
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice (Fresh or bottled)
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 1 cup honey
  1. In a 6 quart saucepan, stir fruit pectin into crushed strawberries and jalapenos. Add lemon juice and margarine/butter. Bring mixture to a full rolling boil on high heat, stirring constantly.

  2. Add sugar and honey quickly to fruit mixture. Return to a full rolling boil and boil exactly 1 minute, stirring constantly.

  3. Remove from heat and skim off any foam. Immediately fill clean 8 oz. jars to within 1/8 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads in necessary.

  4. Cover quickly with flat lids and screw bands on tightly. Invert jars for 5 minutes, then turn upright.

  5. Let stand at room temperature for 24 hours. Unopened sauce may be stored in a cool, dark place for up to 1 year.

This recipe makes approximately 4 pints of sauce.
