Chilli jam with red wine vinegar


  • 8 Fresh red chillies
  • 10 red peppers
  • 300ml red wine vinegar
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • 1 tin of chopped tomatoes
  • 700grams caster sugar


  1. Start your red wine chilli jam by whizzing up your peppers, chillies and garlic in food processor or blender, or if you don’t have one, just chopped really finely.
  2. add the chopped ingredients to a pan along with the sugar and red wine vinegar, and slowly bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally.
  3. Once the sugar has dissolved, bring the jam up to a boil for 1 – 2 minutes before taking it back to a simmer, and leave it for 40-50 minutes.
  4. Make sure you check the jam regularly, and stir now and then to stop it burning on the bottom of the pan.
  5. Simmer the jam until it becomes nice and thick, and then allow it to cool slightly before ladling into jars.
