Smoky & Sweet Strawberry Chipotle Jam

Strawberries and chipotle give this jam a sweet, spicy kick. After a week it becomes like a thick sauce, so we use it to baste chicken, beef ribs and pork. —Redawna Kalynchuk, Barrhead, Alberta

    Delicious sweet heat in a jam. This was my first attempt at making jam. The recipe was easy to follow and the results were fantastic! I have given two jars away already for birthday gifts along with kitchen towels. Big Hit. This is a keeper!
