About this recipe: This is FAB-U-LOUS with Christmas turkey, pork, ham, goose, cheeses!! In the New Year it's even better with sausage and bacon sandwiches, yum scrum.

Carillion Bretagne, France

Makes: 4 jars chilli jam

  • 5 thumb size red chillies
  • 2 red peppers, seeded
  • 2 cloves crushed garlic
  • 1 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1kg jam sugar
  • 340ml (12 fl oz) fruit vinegar

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:12min  ›  Ready in:32min 

  1. Blitz the chillies and peppers, garlic and ginger in a processor until still a little bit chunky.
  2. Dissolve the sugar in the vinegar over a low heat. Add the blitzed mix and stir until boiling rapidly then continue to boil for bout 12 minutes until getting thick and gloopy.
  3. Allow to cool then use a funnel to fill sterilised glass jam or kilner jars. Keeps very well but fridge it once it's opened


This can all be done on high in a microwave. I always wear plastic gloves when making this. Do not risk it without! If it's thicker than you want, stir in some runny honey to thin it and make it a really sweet chilli 'jam'. Hope you enjoy!

Fruit vinegar

I've used red wine vinegar in the past but my husband uses cider vinegar-prolific here in Brittany.
