Pepper Raspberry Jam

The Pepper Peach Jam was so good, that we decided to make a Raspberry version. This version isn’t as spicy, but the flavor is delicious. I am so looking to sitting around this winter and nibbling on crackers covered in this jam. Fortunately, this recipe makes about 14 quarter pint (4 oz ) jars.

This jam is good on toast, on crackers with a little cream cheese, and on vanilla ice cream. I am sure I will come up with more uses over the coming months as well.
