During the time I start this cooking and photography blog I mad many recipes that I fell in love with them. Some were from cooking books or blogs, other just my own recipes with the ingredients I had in my kitchen. This red chili peppers jam is one of them. I started from the basic red chili jam recipe and then I add some ingredients that I felt will please me more.
Here is the original recipe: Red chili jam. It is from a Romanian chef that I like to watch sometimes. With google translate you can read it in English too.
My quantities are a little bit different from the original recipe and this was my choice.
- 350 g red chili peppers
- 200 g sugar
- 150 ml apple vinegar
- Juice from 1 orange
- Juice from 2 lemons
- 2 red peppers
Cut the chili and red peppers in small pieces and then use a kitchen robot to make them as small as possible. I like it very spicy so I made 2 batches: one with seeds and one without the seeds. They are both heaven, but I need to prepare you that the one with seeds is so very spicy. I love it!
I didn’t use any gloves or mask because I didn’t feel necessary but that is only me. If you are not very friendly with your red chilies use gloves.
In a pot put the vinegar, sugar, orange and lemon juice and let it boil for 5 minutes. Add the peppers. With the heat at minimum let it boil till is thick.
Remove from the heat when the mixture resembles a jam texture. Allow to cool and transfer into jars.
Have fun making it and then enjoy it! I will put it even on the cake.
