    Rita~'s Note:

    I came up with this sweet and spicy jam after picking goodies from my garden and looking at Zucchini, Pineapple, Ginger Jam which I posted 4 years ago. Had home growing Habaneros so added and what more do I need to say? This would be great served over a grilled chicken or fish.

      I searched far and wide to find something that I could use zukes in, then I came across this. I'm glad I did because it is a really great jam with all kinds of goodies in it: zukes, pineapple, ginger, and habanero. I canned this the other week and just got to taste it tonight with some cream cheese on crackers (like the pic)... amazing and addicting. It's a bit sweet for me, but the DH loved it. I didn't have crystalized ginger on hand, so I ended up using a nub of fresh ginger. We didn't add the red dye to the jam because we stay away from dyes in general. I canned in the small 4oz jelly jars to give away for Christmas. I can see al the bits of goodies in the jam, so it looks very pretty. I think this will be good on some chicken, shrimp, and pork. Water it down a tad and use it as a spicy glaze when grilling. DH says it could probably go with goat cheese... hmmm.. sounds like a good idea to me! Thanks for this recipe!

I have also put cream cheese, crab then the jam. Knocks your socks off. Better be ready for hot! Thanks.
