I did make this jam and it was just too hot. Could not taste the strawberries. I am going to try it again and add 1/2 cup of strawberries and use 1/2 cup less of jalapenos. Some people that tried it said it was not hot enough!, but most said the proportions were not right.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 cups crushed ripe strawberries
  • 2 cups chopped jalapenos
  • 1 (1 3/4 ounce) package dry pectin
  • 7 cups sugar


  1. Combine the strawberries, jalapenos and pectin in a 4 quart microwave proof bowl.

  3. Stir in sugar and mix well.
  4. Cook covered on high for 11-12 minutes or until a hard boil is reached.
  5. Boil hard for 1 minute.
  6. Skim off foam.
  7. Ladle into clean hot sterile jars.
