I really enjoy Chilli Jam, especially served with a nice juicy steak!! As I mentioned we have been having some really enjoyable steak recently so I thought I would try my hand at making my own chilli jam.
Variations of this relish are numerous, some actually resembling jelly and others being more relish like. I love The Gourmet Sauce Company's Chilli Jam which is relish like and would buy jars of it every time I went to Tasmania with work.
I came across this recipe on Taste.com and it looked basic enough to experiment with. To my surprise it was nice. Slightly sweet but a nice consistency however I woulf prefer more of a chilli kick so next time I am thinking that I would add one small bullet chilli also.
