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
