Red Pepper Jam with Stevia

A jam with character, with intensity, with bite, with color! You will definitely enjoy it in both savory and sweet combinations. It is light, free from sugar, gets made with stevia
Suggestion: let the usual form of consumption of a jam and try to enjoy it with the spoon straight from the jar. As children.
"Ripe" flavors, peppery aftertaste and sweet just enough.
Do not miss the ginger and the spicy chilli, giving it the necessary spark to be remembered by the palate for some time!
Yours!
work: 20′ time: 1h:00′ very easy:

Ingredients (∼450gr -15.9 oz- Jam)

  • 650 gr (1.4 lbs) peppers
  • 1 apple
  • 1 chili pepper
  • 180 gr (6.3 oz) Στέβια Truvia ή 350 gr (12.3 oz) ζάχαρη
  • 1 tsp ginger powder
  • 1 lemon juice and zest
  • ∼½ lt (1.06 Pt) water
Wash and cut the peppers lengthwise. Remove the stem and seeds.
Cut into small squares ~1cm (0.39 in). Simultaneously peel and cut the apple into small bites.
The skins and seeds of the apple put them in a tulle. You will put them in the pot with the peppers.
Weigh the chopped peppers and the apple and should be 700 gr (1.5 lbs) net weight. Put them in a stainless steel saucepan with the apple peels in tulle tied tightly with the string sticking out.
Add water and stevia (or sugar). Whatever you choose.
In the saucepan, add the ginger, the juice and the zest of lemon.
Boil the jam over medium-high heat with the lid to half cover it.
After 30 minutes, check if the peppers have softened, and if you need to add a little water.
Remove the tulle.
With blenders mash the peppers as they are in the pot…
…We can let the jam with somewhat large pieces or pureeing completely.
Boil for 5 minutes more and then remove from heat.
Stuff the sterilized jars.
Spread goat cheese, on a slice of bread and taste the result.

The apple, on top of taste, it offers the necessary pectin needed to jam.
If spiciness is not your forte, add only a half instead of a whole chilli.
