Anyone else making jam these days? I scored a lot of raspberries recently, knowing my family could not possibly eat them all… so I decided to make some jam that will allow us a taste of summer throughout the cooler months. It was really easy to do, especially with my Instant Pot! You can apply the same idea to other berries – blackberries, strawberries, blueberries.
This jam has all the sweetness of raspberries with a slight kick of heat from the chipotle peppers added in. You can always omit the peppers if preferred to. As for enjoying the jam, it’s always good slathered on toast, english muffins and bagels. I also tried this in crepes with some dark chocolate chips… and that was amazing!
