Innovation Chef, for Meal Ticket Brands, Kevin Reimer, has whipped up an exclusive recipe for Red Pepper Jam. This is a great option for Charcuterie boards when you really want to impress someone. Although it is deceptively simple regarding the method and ingredients, the flavours are unique and are not typical of your everyday charcuterie board. It also goes well in Sandwiches and Burgers.
Red Pepper Jam
– 15 x red peppers
– 3 cups x white sugar
– 2 cups x white vinegar
– ½ tbsp x ground fennel
Take 15 Red Peppers, core and seed them and pulse them in a blender until roughly chopped. Put the peppers in a strainer with a pinch of salt, massage peppers with salt and set in fridge with a container below to catch the juice. Let strain overnight.
In a small pot combine the following:
3 cups x White Sugar
2 cups x White Vinegar
Strained Red Peppers
Reduce on medium-low heat until all liquid is gone and it coats the back of a spoon.
In a blender puree the Pepper mix with the following:
½ Tbsp x Ground Fennel
Cool on counter and refrigerate. Best Before 1 month.
