pepper jam

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.
