Chilli Jam

OMG – this is the yummiest chilli jam ever!  You can make it as hot or as sweet as you like, but be warned – once you taste this you will be addicted!  I made this the first time on the stove in a saucepan, stirring… stirring… stirring, until I had a brilliant idea to try it in the thermomix.  So easy – and the best part was my fingers didn’t burn for a few days after from chopping  all of the chillis!

Chilli Jam - 1

Ingredients

2 Brown Onions, peeled and quartered
6 cloves of garlic, peeled
4 red chillis
5 Red Capsicums (quartered with seeds and white membrane removed)
100g Oil (Peanut, Vegetable or Olive)
180g Brown Sugar
35g Fish Sauce
1 Lime (juice only)
2 sterilised glass jars (see below)

Method

Place onions, garlic and chillis into bowl and chop speed 5 for 10 seconds

Add capsicum and chop speed 4 for 4 seconds - use spatula to incorporate

Add oil and cook at 100°C at soft speed for 60 minutes in reverse

Remove lid and add brown sugar, fish sauce and lime juice and cook 100°C at soft speed for 20 minutes in reverse

Taste and adjust sugar if desired

Chop at speed 5 for 4 seconds

I usually drain mine in a colander to make it a bit thicker.  You can do this or place it as is in a sterilised jar and keep in the fridge.Chilli Jam - 2

(I sterilise my jars with Milton Anti-bacterial Tablets – they are found in the baby aisle of the supermarket.  It is a quick and easy process of filling up a clean large bowl with cold water, adding one or two tablets and letting the clean jar(s) soak for at least 15 minutes.  Drain on a clean tea towel and use immediately)

Keep chilli jam in the fridge and dollop on everything!!

    • Hi Michelle
      Sorry for the delay in replying – you have probably sorted this out by now! I just use the large red chillis – they are about 10cm long, but you could use any that are available, just adjust quantity if using very hot ones like birdseye.
      Let me know how you went!,
      Cheers,
      Mel
