This really is a capsicum jam, that you pour over cream cheese. It's great at parties, is easy to make, and tastes amazing.

What a lovely recipe - I chargrilled the capsicums first, then went ahead with the recipe. My husband had it today on his jacket potatoes, but I love it with crackers spread with cream cheese and a dollop of "jam" on top - beautiful

I made this for my sons 21st, and I must admit it was my personal favourite (and Im sure it was for the lady who came up to me mid evening wanting the recipe) I used a jar of roasted red peppers and chopped them up took about 40 minutes for it to get to the 'jammy' stage. It looked great too..if I hadnt been so busy with everything else Id've taken pics. YUM!

I wasn't able to find cans of capsicums, so I used smoked/roasted red peppers instead. (This made my cook-time a little closer to 20 minutes than 20, but it was well worth the wait!) This is a delicious recipe! Very spicy and sweet... absolutely perfect with cream cheese & some fancy crackers :) Thanks so much for sharing it!
