Raspberry Chipotle Jam

Raspberries and chipotles provide the perfect balance of sweet and spicy in this versatile jam.

Raspberry Chipotle Jam

I’ve been dabbling in canning ever since I was contacted by Ball to participate in their Can it Forward campaign last summer. It’s been a lot of fun experimenting with new flavors. I’m still pretty new to canning and had an itch to make some jam the other day.

Raspberry Chipotle Jam

I browsed the recipes on www.freshpreserving.com to find something to make. I was intrigued at the idea of the sweet and spicy combination of raspberries and chipotles and decided to give it a shot.

Since my chipotles had been frozen in their sauce, I used 3 chipotles instead of the 2 called for in the recipe. I’m glad I did this. The resulting jam was sweet with a subtle heat that the chipotles bring to the party.

Hubby and I enjoyed eating this with some cheese and crackers right after I made it. I’m thinking it would make an amazing grilled cheese sandwich. I might try slathering some on some chicken too. Any other ideas on how I can use this stuff?

Raspberry Chipotle Jam

Raspberries and chipotles provide the perfect balance of sweet and spicy in this versatile jam.

Yield: Four 8-oz jars

Prep Time: 4 minutes

Cook Time: 21 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients:

2 2/3 cups crushed raspberries (about four 6-oz containers)
3 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, chopped
1 Tbsp adobo sauce
3 Tbsp Ball® RealFruit® Classic Pectin
1/2 tsp butter
3 1/3 cups sugar

Directions:

Crush raspberries with a potato masher. Combine with chipotles and sauce.

If using a jam maker, sprinkle pectin over bottom of pot with the stirrer attached. Add raspberries and chipotles over pectin. Add butter to reduce foaming. Press the JAM button, then ENTER.

When the machine beeps after 4 minutes, gradually add the sugar. Place the lid on the pot.

Place 4 sterilized jars in a stock pot set to high heat. Once the water starts to boil, reduce to a simmer.

When the Jam maker beeps again, the jam is done. Using a pot holder, remove the stirrer and skim any foam.

Remove hot jars from water and ladle the jam in to the jars. Allow jars to come to room temperature before storing in the fridge or freezer.

      Chipotle is a flavor I’m learning to love as I use it more and more!

    Holy yum! This jam reminds me of the sauce in one of my favorite appetizers from a little restaurant in Kansas. It was raspberry chipotle sauce combined with cream cheese and black beans, and it was served warm with tortilla chips. The best!

      Is it So Long Saloon by chance?…

      If so, check back on Tuesday…

      BTW, I just saw in your bio that you went to Purdue – I did too! Aero engineering for me. Crazy about that shooting this week…

    Yes, So Long Saloon! We lived in Manhattan for a few years while my husband worked on his PhD. Can’t wait to see what you’ve cooked up on Tuesday!

    Goodness, what a coincidence that you are a Purdue alumna too! Yes, so crazy and so sad.

    I am super excited to try this recipe out. I love idea of the sweet of the fruit and the heat of the pepper. I will let you know how mine turns out.

    *I just moved to Boston which is how I found your website. I’m sorta sad that you moved back to Ohio because I would love to meet you. :D

    Oh, yum! I’m a great fan of using jams, marmalades and chutneys with meat in the crockpot or as a glaze on roasts. This would be perfect on a pork tenderloin.
