Spicy Peach Jalapeno Jam

This Spicy Peach Jalapeno Jam is sweet with a subtle kick from the peppers. It’s great served with cheese and crackers.

Spicy Peach Jam

After making some peach pie bars, jam, and sorbet, I still had over-ripened peaches staring me in the face. Since I’m still newly-smitten with the whole canning process, I decided to make more jam. But this time I wanted to spice things up a bit. I had a few jalapenos hanging around the kitchen, so I decided to make a spicy jam.

As much as I’m a wimp when it comes to spicy foods, I was wishing this jam had more of a kick. I think I’m definitely getting over my spicy-wimpyness. Next time I make this, I’ll definitely leave the seeds from all three jalapenos in the jam.

I shared a couple jars of this jam with some friends and still had enough left over for Hubby and I to enjoy. We cracked one jar open right away and have been snacking on it with cheese and crackers. I also recently poured some over some warm brie and served it with a baguette to some friends for a snack. It was definitely a huge hit.

Spicy Peach Jalapeno Jam

This Spicy Peach Jalapeno Jam is sweet with a subtle kick from the peppers. It's great served with cheese and crackers.

Yield: Six 8-oz jars

Ingredients:

3.5 lb peaches, peeled, pitted, and chopped
3 jalapeno peppers, seeds removed from 2, chopped
1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
6 cups sugar
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 Tbsp butter, optional
1 pouch liquid pectin

Directions:

Combine the peaches, jalapenos, bell pepper, sugar, and lemon juice in a dutch oven. Cook over medium heat for 30 minutes until peaches are completely softened. Stir periodically throughout the cooking time. If the the mixture starts to foam, add the butter.

Once the peaches are soft, add the liquid pectin. Stir and bring to a full rolling boil. Boil for 2 minutes and remove from heat.

Skim any remaining foam from the top and fill your jars leaving a 1/4 inch head space.

    love your adaptations- and i agree, one-pot meals usually need more veggies!

      Not that this meal is in any way healthy, but at least bumping up the veggies (and the servings) reduces the amount of pure indulgence per serving…

    Love all the changes you made to this! And I agree- the more veggies, the merrier 🙂

    I love that idea to just throw extra veggies in. I always have some leftover unused veggies going bad in the fridge after I’ve used some for a recipe. The biscuits on this look amazing.

    This looks rich and satisfying. I love the idea of biscuits on top rather than pie crust. Cream cheese chive biscuits sound especially delicious!

      I definitely plan to make these biscuits again some time. They’d be delicious even without the creamy pot pie filling under them.

    I love the thought of throwing the extra veggies in, i think a lot of people are hesitant to do so. This looks so delicious and satisfying 🙂

      Yea when it comes to cooking, I figure there’s no harm in playing with recipes. Baking is another story…

    My boyfriend, who eats a good portion of the overall meals I cook plus leftovers, hates veggies. This is a problem, because I don’t like food going bad but I can’t eat it all myself. I love recipes like this because it’d probably be SO tasty, he’d hardly even notice the abundance of green. Or he’d pick the peas out. Who knows.

    • beantownbaker — March 26th, 2013 @ 8:16 pm

      I can’t imagine hating veggies… But I agree, I think he’d hardly notice the veggies in this. It’s that creamy and delicious.

    I love that you topped this off with biscuits instead of the traditional flaky crust!

    • beantownbaker — March 28th, 2013 @ 6:53 am

      Biscuits are always the right answer 😉
