Double-Berry Jalapeno Jam

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Process: 10 min./batch

Makes

8 half-pints

My friend and I had tried a fruity jam with jalapenos at a local vineyard and this is the version I created. I like this spread on crackers with cream cheese, on hamburgers or even on grilled cheese. For extra heat, add the seeds of a few jalapenos to the jam. —Lisa Keim, Watertown, New York

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

  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 8 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.
