A delicious savoury jam with a burst of heat to be enjoyed with cheese and cold meats.
Ingredients
  • 8 red peppers, deseeded and roughly chopped
  • 10 red chillis roughly chopped
  • finger-sized piece fresh root ginger, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 8 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 400g can cherry tomatoes
  • 750g golden caster sugar
  • 250ml red wine vinegar
Instructions
  1. Place the peppers, chillies (with seeds), ginger and garlic into a food processor and whizz until very finely chopped.
  2. Pour into a heavy-bottomed pan with the tomatoes, sugar and vinegar and bring to the boil.
  3. If any scum comes to the surface skim it off, then turn the heat down to a simmer and cook for about 50 mins, stirring occasionally.
  4. Once the jam thickens continue cooking for 10-15 mins more, stirring frequently so that it doesn’t catch and burn.
  5. Cool slightly, transfer to sterilised jars, then leave to cool completely.
  6. Keeps for 3 months in a cool, dark cupboard – refrigerate once opened.
