Lynne (LynneJoyce) had inspired me to try my hand at chilli jam and helped me along. I’d taken these pics to e-mail to her as a pictorial progress report. She liked the pics and suggested I post them to celebrate global cooperation. I loved the idea
Now the end product here – V4 – was not a success in terms of consistency but ace for flavour. The consistency failure was due to laziness in following the steps properly. My bad
Unfortunately, as yummy as it was, it wasn’t edible. Just too flipping hot. The mini jalapenos I used – Vs 1 and 2 – were lethal. They should be combined with other things like bell peppers if you wanna make a jam. OR one should just use normal green chillies. I’m in the process of modifying it, though. If I can’t tame it, I might offer it to NASA as rocket fuel.
V3 is some ingredients in the pan just before firing up the hob.
V5: Before cooking, I’d knocked out and rinsed out lots of seeds and dried ‘em to sow. I found it interesting that the cut up chillies continued to ripen over time! Never say die, huh?
PS This is not the first instance of global cooperation. Ann (EAS) got me into a soup making frenzy a couple of years ago
