chilli jam (last minute Christmas gift)

This week I am also making chilli jam, I make this every month all year long. My son can't eat enough of it or my friend Kimmi! So here is the recipe because it makes a great last minute gift that unlike chutney does not need to be left months to mature, you can eat it as soon as its cooled down. Taken from Nigella Christmas and via her web site


  • 150 grams long fresh red chilli peppers (deseeded and cut into 4 pieces)  I buy mine from Morrisons and it works out about £1 for 150 grams - much cheaper than buying in packets at 50g each                           
  • 150 grams red peppers (cored, deseeded and cut into rough chunks)
  • 1 kilogram jam sugar
  • 600 ml cider vinegar (stores own label is perfect)
