Red Chili Pepper Jam for your FACE! by texaskillet

Okay people!  Let’s get this party started…

First take about 5 cups of whole red chili’s and wash em up.


Then set them out and let them dry off a bit.


After they have had a little rest, split and deseed.


Give another rince, set back on the board and then dice.


Add diced peppers, 2 cups sugar and 2 cups of water to a pot and let boil for 20 minutes.



Next, please please let this cool a smidge, put it in a blender or food processor, whatever your preference.  When I did this straight from the pot, I think I had some issue with pressure build up and well.. I had a little geyser of sorts force its way through the top of the blender.  FUN!  Fortunately I was fast enough to flip the switch and save the greater mass. 🙂  But it did result in a healthy session of foamy soapy water clean up.

After a few turns in the blender to the texture of your choice, return the mixture to the pot and simmer for 15 minutes.  Shut off the pot.


Put in sterile jars, seal and store in the fridge or give freely to friends who like a little kick!


Another way to “warm up” when the snow gets too deep and the snow plows won’t stop dumping their loads at the bottom of your drive.  Cheers!!
