I made this jam when the strawberries were in season. It's awesome! So good, I made 4 batches to give as gifts this Christmas.
I did make a few changes. I didn't used fresh jalapenos. For some reason, I thought using the jalapenos I pickled last year was the same thing. When I realized my mistake, I added some dried jalapenos that I ran through my food processor. I figured the pickled peppers might not have enough heat, and adding the dried peppers would add it back. When everything was coming up to boil on the stove, I used my immersion blender to get rid of most of the lumps. I don't care for large chunks of fruit in my jam.
I don't know how the "original" tastes, but my changes turned out OMG good!. The jam is sweet, with a slight hint of the peppers. The heat is a very subtle, slow heat. The color is beautiful, with very small pieces of pepper throughout.
This is one recipe that I will make again!!!
