Sticky Sweet Chilli and Tamarillo Jam

My Little Veggie patch is full of little bell peppers and Chillis. And my Tamarillo tree is drooping with Tamarillos.  So what better way than to utilize them all in a sweet chilli jam?!  You can substitute the Tamarillos for tomatoes if you like.  It is absolutely delicious.
Tamarillos and Chillis
1 Cup (250ml) Tamarillos, skinned and chopped.
1 Cup (250ml) peppers, chopped. ( I used a mix of sweet caspium peppers and chilli peppers)
1 Tbls (15ml) Garlic, crushed.
2 Cups (500ml) Sugar.
1/2 Cup (125ml) White grape vinegar
1 Tbls (15ml) Dark Balsamic vinegar
2 Tbls (30ml) Freshly squeezed lemon Juice
1/2 tsp (5ml) Salt
A lovely sticky consistency
- Put all the ingredients in a medium sized saucepan
- Keep on a low heat stirring occasionally until all the sugar has turned to liquid.
- Turn up slightly and simmer for about 45 minutes until the jam turns syrupy.
- Test a bit on a spoon, the cooled liquid on the spoon must be thick and syrupy but it will thicken even more on cooling.
- Sterilize a jar in boiling water, and pour the warm jam into the jars.

- Makes about 2 cups of jam
- will keep for about a month or so in the fridge
- Can substitute tomatoes for the Tamarillos
- Goes fabulously with cheese. a bbq (braai) or even on a salad.
