A delicious sweet and spicy jam, perfect with crackers and cream cheese, as a condiment or as a glaze for chicken, shrimp or pork.
It never fails, I come home on a Friday evening only to realize that we have to take something to a get-together and I have nothing prepared! No worries, I grab a jar of peach-pepper jam, a box of Ritz Crackers and a block of cream cheese and I’m ready! And the best part is the crowd LOVES it! I never have left overs!
- 4 cups peaches peeled and finely chopped
- 1 red bell pepper seeded and finely chopped
- 3 medium jalapenos seeded and finely chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice
- 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 5 cups white sugar
Place peaches in a large stainless steel pot. Combine peppers, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar with fruit in pan. Stir well to combine.
Place on the stove-top over high heat and stir until the mixture comes to a full boil. Stir in sugar and bring to a full rolling boil.
Boil hard for several minutes, stirring constantly until all of the foam is either removed with a spoon or quits rising to the top. Remove from the heat.
Pour into clean, warm, sterilized jars leaving 1/2 inch head space. Seal while hot with hot sterile lids. Water bath for 10 minutes.space
You don’t need to add pectin? This looks delicious!
You can use Pectin if you like. I don’t use Pectin in many if any recipes. I simply cook it to my desired thickness.
