Original recipe yields 8 servings



  1. Preheat oven to Broil.
  2. Lay the peppers, cut side down, on a baking sheet and place under the broiler until skin turns black. Remove from the oven and cover with a kitchen towel; allow to cool.
  3. Cut a small X in the base of the tomatoes. Place in a small bowl, cover with boiling water, and set aside for 2 minutes. Drain and cool. Peel skin from peppers and tomatoes; chop flesh finely.
  4. In a medium saucepan combine onion, apple, vinegar and sugar with tomatoes and peppers. Heat over medium heat, stirring until sugar has dissolved; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes. Store, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.

This turned out better than I expected it to, although I think "jam" might be a little misleading because it doesn't congeal. It wasn't hot at all, but did have a nice flavor. I was thinking that if I made it again, I'd add a little less sugar and have it on hot dogs. I would also probably pulse it in a food processor to cut it a little finer than I did. This made a little over a pint for me. I used four Roma tomatoes that I seeded. It doesn't say to do that in the recipe, but I just figured you should.






I can't believe I made jam from scratch. And it tasted really good!
