    Thanks for sharing – I’m going to give that tomato jam recipe a go tonight!

    A few weeks ago I made up a little jam that I’ve been loving on everything possible (so insanely good with cheese, especially melted!). New Mexican green chile jam with honey – I’m naming it Sweet Heat :) There’s no added pectin and I used honey instead of sugar to give it a smokier sweetness.

    1. clean 1 ½ cups of roasted green chiles and roughly chop (a mezzaluna is perfect)
    2. sweat one large yellow onion, chopped in 1tbs butter until clear then add chile
    3. add ¾ cups honey and ½ cups apple cider vinegar and simmer for 30 min – until thick and slightly carmelized
    4. spoon into sterilized jars and can in hot water bath
    store in the refrigerator in a sealed glass container for up to 2 months
