After my first jam session 2 yrs ago, I finally broke out the canner. Black berries were on sale as were Strawberries and I spent 2 days making 4 different Jams. I am not going to post recipes for 3 of them, as they have been made before as they are or simply swapping out another fruit. I made traditional Strawberry, Blackberry and the much loved Strawberry Lemon Marmalade (so good!!!) The one I will post at least after pics of the other 3 was the Freezer jam I made. My Preggo Best Friend loves Dried Mango Slices with Chili.. so when I came across Mango Chili Freezer jam I could not resist making it. As for taste, haha none of us has tried it yet, but tonight Its going on as a glaze for grilled chicken and I am so excited to see how it comes out!
1/2 c sugar
1 1/59 oz pkg Ball Simple Creations Freezer Jam Fruit Pectin
2 cups diced, crushed mango ( I couldn't figure out how to ever make it diced! it was crushed and mushed the whole time lol)
2 green jalapeno pepers, seeded and finely diced
1 red jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely diced
4 plastic ball (8oz) freezer Jars
Stir sugar and contents of pectin package in a bowl until well blended.
add mango and peppers. Stir 3 minutes
Ladle jam into clean jars to fill line. Twist on lids. Let stand until thickened, about 30 minutes. Refrigerate up to 3 wks or freeze up to 1 yr
Now I keep forgetting to stock gloves for my hot pepper cutting times, which lately have been often! so I put them and the mango in my food processor and just gave it a whirl. They came out splendidly together lol. I also only got 3 of the 8oz cups of Jam and not the 4. But then, I may have not gotten enough of the mango out or made it too mushy no idea. It set up nice and thick though, and can't wait to see how it tastes grilled on chicken!
