Jalapeño Strawberry Jam

Rating: 5 stars 256
This jalapeño-strawberry jam is a favorite in our family at Christmas. It's not spicy, but it can be if you add more jalapeño peppers or even a few habanero peppers. The flavor of the sweet strawberries combined with the flavor of the jalapeños gives this jam a wonderful dimension.
