Making Chilli Jam:

Before you start working with hot pepper, be sure to wear plastic gloves, and preferably a mask, so as not to get a burn of the respiratory tract and mucous membranes. During cleaning, be careful and careful not to accidentally scratch your nose, for example.
Sharp peppers also need to be thoroughly cleaned from seeds and tails, cut off whitish partitions, rinsed with water inside and out (preferably not under running, but dipped peeled and chopped pods in a bowl of water) and dried.

Step 3: Cook Chili Jam

Put all the chopped peppers in a pan, add sugar, add salt and red dry wine. Put on a slow fire, bring to a boil, and then cook for another 1,5 hour.
After the specified time, remove your brew from the fire, grind it with a blender, turning everything into a homogeneous mass.
Return the jam pan to a slow fire and continue cooking for another 1,5 hour. As with any other jam, do not forget to mix and periodically remove the foam.

Recipe Tips:

To do this, cans with blanks need to be made into a pan with hot water and pasteurized for 10 minutes, and then tightly close the jam with lids. To prevent the jars from cracking, put a dishcloth on the bottom of the pan.

- Chili pepper jam should be stored in small glass jars.
