Bella’s Beaut Chilli Tomato Jam

Growing up, I was lucky to have a amazing Nanna, that cooked a variety of foods from sweets to dinners. One of the things that I picked up from her was jam making. Sometimes making jam can be frustrating and hard work, however over the years I have come up with simple but delicious creation that everyone seems to love.  Anyone that comes across me knows how much I love chilli which is why I love the kick in this jam  But best of all it can be made as mild or as spicy as one would like. To start this tasty jam you will need the following: Utensils   Empty Jar jams with lids(approx 3) Oven Large Pot Wooden Spoon Knife Chopping board Measuring cup IMG_0668 Ingredients  3 fresh red chillies, seeds removed and finely sliced(add extra for more spice) 500g canned chopped Italian tomatoes 4 cloves of  garlic, peeled and chopped 2 thumbs fresh ginger root , peeled and chopped 300g of caster sugar 100ml of red wine Method  1. Sterilise jam jars in oven 2. Put all the ingredients into large pot and slowly bring to a boil, stirring all the time 3. After turn to a gentle simmer, skim off any foam that foams. 4. Continue to simmer for 40 to 45 mins until jam like consistency, stirring every 5 mins to release the solids that will settle on the bottom IMG_0669 5. Scrape the sides of the pot during cooking until the whole mass cooks evenly. 6. Pour jam a small amount of time into warmed glass jars and cover. Makes about 2 to 3 jars. Serve on whatever you like, cheese, bread, side sauce and many more. And must of all enjoy.
