Ingredients

  • 1 kg Siúcra Sure Set Jam Sugar
  • 500 g red peppers
  • 30 g chilli peppers
  • 225 g white wine vinegar
  • 225 g cold water

Wash the red peppers and chilli peppers. Cut and remove the seeds. Then finely dice. Place them into a food processor and blitz to puree.

Place the pureed red peppers and chilli peppers into a large saucepan. Then add the white wine vinegar and cold water.

Cook over a low heat for 5 -10 minutes until the peppers are softened. Add in the Siúcra Sure Set Jam Sugar and stir the sugar until completely dissolved. Bring to the boil and boil vigorously for 1 minute.

Leave the jam to stand for 5 minutes, stir and pour into a clean, dry, hot sterilised jars. Fill all the way to the top. Place a piece of waxed — paper disc on top. Then seal with a tight filling lid.

Allow the jam to cool completely and then label it. If the labels are put on when the jam is still warm the heat will prevent them from sticking properly.

Tips: To prevent any irritation when preparing the chilli peppers use disposal gloves to avoid direct contact with the skin. If you like a hot tasting chilli jam increase the amount of chilli is the recipe. For a super-hot chilli jam don't remove the seeds
