That's a very impressive crop Pawty. Will you post your recipe for chilli jam please if you haven't already. I still have chillies from last year in the freezer to use up.

Impressive Pawty & really pretty to look at! That wine looks interesting - does that really say 2012 on the label - been down in the cellar? :)

Hi,

I use a Nigella recipe.

150 g chillies
I50 g red pepper
1 kg jam sugar
600 ml cider vinegar.

Deseed chillies and peppers ( although I substitute the pepper for home grown mild chillies or picanti ) and chop finely (or blitz in the food processor), dissolve the sugar in the vinegar. Heat. Add chillies to the liquid. Bring to boil and let it 'rollick' for 15 min. Cool for 40 min (it should start to go syrupy then more viscose. Put in sterilised jars.

Easy peasy!

Ha, yes Westi! Not from the vineyard - mr Pawty's tipple of the week. 2017 harvest is this weekend - I can feel my back hurting already!
