RED PEPPER JAM XMAS TREAT!!!!
Due to the really mild weather here in East Anglia this year my pepers grown outside on the allotment produced a bumper crop, so I made one of my Faviorite accompliements to cheese, Red Pepper Jam. its a recipe that i made up a few years ago to go with a dish i created for a menu. thought i would share as it also makes a good hamper filler for friends and family.
sweat the pepers & chilli in the butter and thyme add the salt. Add sugar when disolved add the vinegar & tomato puree cook for 30-50 mins checking and skimming top as you go. check set but adding a little to a "chilled" plate and chill for 5 mins then run your finger through it this will show you if its ready or needs longer repeat until ready.
add to steralised jars and chill.
if you dont like it spicy then dont add the chilli
give it a go and let me know what you think!
