Chilli jam recipe
« on: September 21, 2012, 07:35:55 pm »
450g tomatoes
2 chillies (i used more because I like it hot)
1cm ginger
2 cloves garlic
250g granulated sugar (I used 200g)
60gr balsamic vinegar
salt & pepper
Bliza all ingredients together until finely chopped
Pour mixture into pan, boil for 25-30 mins stiring occasionbally until it thickens and becomes syrupy
Take off heat and leave to cool in pan for 20 mins
Pour into steralised jar
Once opened store in the fridge.
 
This is a very sweet recipe and as you can see I used less sugar than the recipe says. Its still quite sweet but I don't think you can reduce the sugar much more or else you won't get the jam effect.
Its lovely with cheese or cold meat.

Love the sound of this Sally. How do you get 60gr balsamic vinegar? Do you just weigh it out like dry ingredients. Also, do you use red or green chillies, how big are they and are they fresh?
I'd love to try this at the weekend.

Mary, I wasn't sure about the balsamic vinegar either so I just weighed it out like the dry ingredients and it worked.
As for the chillies I think it has to be fresh. I would have used small red chillies but only had the bigger ones so used those but used more than the recipe said. I also put the seeds in mine as I like it hot. Taste wise I am sure it would be ok with green chillies but it wouldn't look as nice. Mine was a nice cherry red colour and would be good if you were giving it as a christmas gift.

As with any chutney, you think you're going to get loads when the ingredients first go in the pan, then by the end of the cooking time, you're lucky if you've got enough for a couple of jars!!!!

Just finished making it  :excited:

Hope it's as nice cold as it is hot, made mine with some dark brown sugar as well so it's a deep brown colour flecked with red chillies, looks great

Cheers sally

Im going shopping Tuesday, so Ill get another bottle of balsamic, some fresh chillies and off I go. I always use balsamic, especially on its own as a salad dressing. I can forgive the colour, for the taste. Its yummy.

Good one Bionic, a friend of mine's other half has suddenly developed a craving for chilli jam with everything apparently  :roflanim: and she was asking only the other day for a recipe. Thank you.

 

Anyone got a good chilli recipe
