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.

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.

    Any special tips for freezing your bread & muffins? I really would like to stock up our freezer with some yummy things like that.

    Hey Amanda – I usually wrap the bread/muffins individually with saran wrap. Then I put them into a large Ziplock bag and throw them into the freezer.

    This bread came out great. I substituted I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter for the shortening and used whole wheat flour instead of regular. The bread came out moist and flavorful, with a perfect thick crust on the top. I’m keeping this as my go-to banana bread recipe.
