Hey there! This was the first jam I have ever made.. and now I have made it twice. I made it for christmas, and then was asked about a week later to make another batch because my friends loved it so much! The longest thing really, is sterilizing the jars. The jam itself takes little time. It was not as thick as I imagined it would be, but it is very pleasing on crackers with goat or cream cheese. Sweet and spicy with a bit of after burn!
Things I did: I doubled my batch. I used pectin powder (as opposed to liquid). I used about 5 jalapenos. I used frozen strawberries.
Things I wish I DIDN'T DO: Oh god. I cut the jalapenos without gloves. My hands were burning like I stuck them on the hot stove for HOURS after. Please wear gloves when you cut your jalapenos, even if this has not happened to you before (because its not happened to me but it depends on the jalapenos). If you do get jalapeno burn, you are going to have to put your hands under the hottest water you can stand, and then wash well with dish soap. Just wear the gloves!
