Red Pepper Jam Update from Grandma Vera’s Recipe

A while back, I shared with you Vera Anderson’s recipe for Red Pepper Jam. Since I wrote that, I have actually tried the recipe, and here’s the result.

You may remember it started like this:

Making Canned Food--Re Peppers

The first step. Since she always like modern things, I’m sure grandma would approve of using the electric food processor instead of the hand-cranked food chopper.

Then the serious cooking starts.

And finally, they get ladled into two jars–yes TWO jars is all that results from 7 peppers.

And to tell you the truth–I would change the name to Red Pepper Relish, because it tastes more like sweet pickle relish than anything else I can think of. But I am definitely looking forward to breaking it out for a family meal and spreading it on whatever meat we’re having. It will be great on ham, but also good on beef or poultry. Thanks, Grandma.
