  • Notes
    Notes:

    – Use your chilli jam as an all-purpose condiment. I love it with fried rice or noodles. You can add it to a stir-fry or use it to marinate meats. Try out my Chicken & Chilli Jam Traybake!

Amazing and quick!

Omg just made this! So easy and so flavourful! I didn’t have any dried chilli’s on hand so I made with all fresh and still mouth watering

Yummo!

An easy & delicious recipe. I used all fresh long red chillies & it’s definitely hot. My Asian daughter in law loved it and said you can squeeze some lemon juice on it when serving to keep heat down. Handy hint!!

I grew very hot chillis!

I grew some chillis, but really have no idea what kind. I had a lot of them! So I made this Chilli Jam.

Recipe is super easy to follow. You get lovely flavours across the tongue. But my chillis have a lot of heat!

I’m going try making the tray bake chicken recipe using the jam.

I will have to use it sparingly!
