Fresh Strawberry Chipotle Jam

Fresh Strawberry Chipotle Jam

This Strawberry Chipotle Jam features beautiful sweet berries with smoky peppers for an incredible sweet and savoury jam.

I love making jams and jellies and am continually trying different flavor combinations.

Leaning towards the sweet hot combination and have a long list of hot pepper jellies I make. I have been making this jam for a few years now.

You can add more chipotle peppers for a spicier jam. I have added up to 5 for this recipe.
