Hot Pepper Cranberry Jam is one of these recipes you just have to try to understand. If you're a fan of hot pepper jelly, this is for you ~ the tart and tangy cranberries marry up perfectly with the heat of the hot pepper for one memorable taste experience.
1or 2 jalapeño peppersseeded and minced (leave the seeds in if you like more heat)
12oz1 bag fresh cranberries, rinsed
Rinse the berries and put in a pot. Add the water, sugar, and vinegar. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. The berries will start to pop, so stand back a bit. Once the sauce has come to a boil, it will be foaming and the berries will no longer be popping, turn down the heat and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Take off the heat and stir in the minced peppers. Let the sauce cool completely. Then transfer it to clean jars. Refrigerate until set. Cranberry sauce firms up as it cools, and eventually it will be of a spreadable consistency, perfect for sandwiches and cheese plates.
