Calico Jalapeno Jam

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Miss Annie

This recipe is a chunky type jam. I will enhance a variety of dishes, and makes a wonderful snack on top of cream cheese, served with crackers. From my Texas Home Cooking cookbook, by the Jamisons'. Prep time is an estimate.

This is a wonderful recipie! Just like in a restraunt! Not very hard to make either- once everything is cut up, that's the biggest part of it.
