About this recipe: Good, hot, spicy jelly or jam, which is good with a range of foods. A standing favourite is with Brie or Camembert, on crackers, toast or sandwiches.
For less heat do not add the seeds. If habanero chillies are unavailable, you could use Scotch bonnets, which are similar in heat and flavour.
Habaneros are caustically spicy. Use rubber gloves when handling and seriously consider using eye protection. You will not be harmed if it touches your skin but it will hurt with a pain you will remember to your dying day.
Instead of juicing the carrot and apple, you can speed things up and buy apple and carrot juice from the store and use around 200ml carrot juice and 300ml apple juice.

Remember to wear gloves and possibly eye protection when mincing the habaneros. They are very hot and lethal to skin and mucus membranes - 17 Jan 2011
Yummy. Was looking for something like the Barnyard Hot pepper jam I loved from NZ, and so made this recipe from two others and this is hotter, not as red but very, very good. - 03 Aug 2010
