This sweet, savory, spicy Jalapeño-Strawberry Jam can be a fun dipping sauce, marinade or sandwich spread.
This recipe is the byproduct of an Instagram campaign I did the other month, but it was so good that I knew I needed to share it on the blog, too. This quick and easy fruit jam is the perfect combination of sweet and spicy that will have you clamoring for more, and a splash of vinegar at the end helps to brighten all of the flavors and balance out the sweetness a bit. The strawberries and jalapeño join forces to become a condiment that’s great spread on a piece of bread, as a dip for tortilla chips (not your typical dip, but it works), swirled into your morning yogurt, or in lieu of marinara as a sauce for mozzarella sticks (strange, but I’m speaking from experience). I used a bag of frozen strawberries in this recipe because they were no where close to being in season, but I imagine fresh, ripe fruit would work just as well. I might also try this with other fruit in the future as a peach and jalapeño jam sounds divine.
I am a classically trained chef, writer, and lover of all things food. My passion for food is even greater than my love of sleep (which is saying a lot). Hopefully my recipes will inspire you to go out and cook something of your own.
