Cranberry Jalapeno Jam

This simple cranberry jalapeno pepper jam is a sweet and spicy jam recipe that's flavorful with just a touch of  heat. 
Our temperature dropped pretty quickly last week so our first real frost came early this year. We still had a few things in our Fall garden, so we needed to get a them picked. It was mostly our Honeynut  Squash and a variety of peppers. 

The squash matured to size, but it hadn't changed to it's deep honey - orange color quite yet. Thankfully the squash will continue to ripen off the vine which allowed us to bring them inside. 

We also had several peppers left in the garden, so I picked the remainder of those and made this festive Cranberry Jalapeno Jam Tart cranberries infused together with jalapeno peppers to make a sweet and spicy jam that's flavored with just the right amount of  heat. 

This delicious jam is great served over cream with crackers, spread on a turkey sandwich or use it as a glaze on meats. Either way, it's sure to go over well. My personal favorite is to place a block of cream cheese on a plate and spoon the jam over the top and serve with an assortment of crackers. 

This jam is also made ahead of time so it's the perfect quick appetizer to have on hand in your pantry. This pepper jam is beautiful in color and gets it's redness from the jalapenos, red bell pepper and the fresh cranberries, so there is no need to add any additional coloring.

Jams and Jellies make wonderful gifts so I love giving them to family and friends during the holiday season. 

I hope you enjoy the recipe and you're family loves it as much as mine!

In one place, this says it makes three pints and in another it says 3 half pints. Which is correct?

This jelly isn't hot at all. It just has the flavor of the jalapenos and a tiny kick at the end.

@Carolyn, The recipe has been fixed to reflect 3 half pints.
