Chili jam

They sell this stuff everywhere in England. It's such a shame they don't sell it in the Netherlands. But, I thought, how hard can it be to make myself.

I've never been a massive fan of jam until I got this with some cheddar scones . Holy moly! What an awesome combination of flavours.

Easy

Making jam is very easy. You boil fruit, or in this case tomato and chili peppers, with sugar and some vinegar and that's pretty much it.

Not quick

This may be an easy recipe but it's not very quick. You'll have to simmer your jam for at least an hour but you can do other stuff in the meantime. Just make sure you stir occasionally.
