Hubby loves anything spicy, so when I saw a simple Thermomix Chilli Jam recipe I knew I had to make it for him. I’m not a huge fan of spicy foods, mainly mild…like super mild spice, whereas hubby can drink a bottle of Tabasco sauce and not be phased at all.
The original recipe states its great for on top of steaks, but in true James style, since making it he has put it in pretty much every meal…you name it he has put it on it. I ended up using 6 whole chilli’s including the seeds and it sure has a hit of heat! The original recipe called for dried child flakes, but I had purchased some fresh chilli’s during the week so I substituted in those.
Very easy to make, but just remember to open your doors and windows for the chilli fumes…Something I forgot to do, resulting in watering eyes from my 3 year old and myself. 🙁
The result was a super sticky, super heat filled jam that my hubby loves. Just remember to label the jar so little ones don’t mistake it for strawberry jam, because it does look like it! This makes a small-ish jar of jam. The great thing about this recipe is that you can set the chilli factor to your tastes. Want more heat? Add more chilli’s. And vice versa.
