My grandma makes a delicous pepper jam that you mix with cream cheese and spread on crackers. I got the recipe from her and Aaron and I made a batch for Christmas presents.
Wash one dozen red peppers.
Cut them into pieces and then chop them finely in a food processor. Add a tablespoon of salt and let stand overnight.
Strain out the liquid.
Cook the peppers in a saucepan with 3 cups of white sugar and 3 cups of white vinegar, uncovered for 45 minutes, until the consistancy of marmalade. Stir frequently.
I designed jar labels on the computer and printed them out.
They explain how to serve the jam.
Pour into small jelly jars.
The recipe makes 4 to 5 cups of jam.
The finished product.
It made a dozen jars for us.
