Crimson Jam


This makes a beautiful Christmas season hors d'oeuvre when used in combination with Jalapeno Jelly.



  1. Seed the peppers and grind them coarsely. Put the peppers into a large bowl, add the salt, cover, and let stand overnight.
  2. Drain off about half of the liquid, pour the peppers into a heavy saucepan, and add the vinegar and sugar. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for about 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
  3. Remove from heat and add red food coloring, a few drops at a time, to make the jam bright red.
  4. Cool slightly, stirring occasionally, and spoon into sterilized jars.
  5. Store in a cool, dark place.
