Chilli Jam Recipe

This is not a chili jam that will put your mouth on fire, but it’s a subtle crafty balance of spiciness. Pranav (my darling husband) is not fond of spicy food at all and he loved this jam when I made it. For my home, it was just the right entity. 

Chilli Jam Recipe

If you are really looking for a kick in the chili jam, just add one or two red spicy chilies (deseeded) to the whole batch. 

Making jams at home is a simple, unchallenging task. It’s been years since I bought a jam bottle from the market. I make jams with seasonal fruits and find it very serene.

If you want a very jammy consistency, use a little pectin. You will find pectin in any grocery store. I personally prefer this like a preserve, with no blobs of jelly.

It goes so perfectly with some bread and fresh ricotta cheese spread over it.

If you are planning a big batch, don’t forget to sterilize the jars, use good quality sealable jars. The jam will remain good, in a sterilized sealed jar for good six months or more. Once you open the jar, then you have to keep it in the fridge.
