My friend and I had tried a fruity jam with jalapenos at a local vineyard and this is the version I created. At work there was a taste test comparing my different versions of the jam, and this one was voted a favorite. I like this fruity spread on crackers with cream cheese, on hamburgers or even grilled cheese. For extra heat, add the seeds of a few jalapenos to the jam.

TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Process: 10 min./batch
MAKES: 64 servings


  • 2 cups finely chopped seeded jalapeno pepper (about 1 pound)
  • 1-1/2 cups crushed strawberries (about 1 pound)
  • 1 cup crushed blackberries (about 3/4 pound)
  • 1 package (1-3/4 ounces) powdered fruit pectin
  • 6-2/3 cups sugar


  1. In a large saucepan, combine jalapenos, strawberries and blackberries. Stir in pectin. Bring to a full rolling boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar; return to a full rolling boil. Boil and stir 1 minute.
  2. Remove from heat; skim off foam. Ladle hot mixture into eight hot half-pint jars, leaving 1/4-in. headspace. Remove air bubbles and adjust headspace, if necessary, by adding hot mixture. Wipe rims. Center lids on jars; screw on bands until fingertip tight.
  3. Place jars into canner with simmering water, ensuring that they are completely covered with water. Bring to a boil; process for 10 minutes. Remove jars and cool. Yield: 8 half-pints.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
The processing time listed is for altitudes of 1,000 feet or less. Add 1 minute to the processing time for each 1,000 feet of additional altitude.

"Nice flavor not too hot. I used this in the Chutney Cheese Ball recipe found on this website (instead of the Mango). It would probably be good with pecans (I'll try that next time)."
