Red Pepper Jam

Chopped red bell peppers and a single sliced jalapeño chile cook with sugar, white wine vinegar, and a touch of butter in this classic pepper jam recipe, set by pectin. You can refrigerate the results for up to a month, freeze up the 3 months, or can for longer storage.

Instructions

  1. 1Place a small saucer in the freezer to chill. In the bowl of a food processor, pulse the bell peppers, jalapeno, and red pepper flakes until finely chopped. In a small bowl, whisk together 1/4 cup of the sugar with the pectin.
  2. 2In a medium heavy saucepan or pot, stir together the pepper mixture, the remaining 1 1/2 cups sugar, the vinegar, butter, and salt. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cook, letting the mixture boil vigorously and stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Slowly add the pectin-sugar mixture, whisking constantly. Continue to boil, stirring constantly until the jam thickens, about 2 minutes longer.
  3. 3To store the jam, let cool completely. Transfer to clean airtight containers and store in the refrigerator for up to 1 month or in the freezer for up to 3 months. You can also can the jam according to our canning instructions.
