Capsicum Jam........twistiebrinkley's recipe.
« on: March 28, 2011, 07:32:57 am »

  I make one that is similar but mine is more of a sweet relish.

1.5 onions (quartered)
1.5 capsicums (quartered)
1.5 cups white sugar
1.5 cups white vinegar

Place the onion in TM for 3-5 secs on speed 7 then add all other ingredients into TM bowl and pulverise 3 secs speed 7 to get desired size.  Then cook 30-40 mins (keep an eye on it) Varoma speed SOFT. 

Delicious served with sausages and meats or on sandwiches

This is a great Jam.
I have been making it for years even before TMX (but it is sooo much easier with TMX)
It is really nice with creamed cheese (or any soft cheese) on crackers.
Also nice on sandwiches and with roast meat both hot and cold.
I highly recommend it!

Soo yummy, will make lots for Chrissy presents.  Notice that after making this, the bowl is extra clean.

Have made this a few times it can be very sweet so I cut the sugar to about one cup. It's very nice on steaks and burgers.
Great if you have an abundance of capsicums.

This is lovely!  thanks Cookie - next time might add just a touch of the chilli!  An easy and tasty way to use up some of those capsicums! - the only tweak - used just 1 cup of sugar (raw - didn't have any white - I'm wondering if that makes any difference) .  Maybe next time might add just a little more.

And Denzelmum was right!  It does help clean the bowl!!  Had some very stubborn burn marks on the base of the bowl that you could actually feel.  After the jam was cooked, and the bowl rinsed out you could still see and feel the marks but they didn't seem quite so stubborn now.  Applied bicarb and after a few gentle rubs, the bowl is now as good as new.   :D
