We picked these Jalapeño Peppers from our garden. Have you ever tasted Jalapeño Pepper Jam? If not, you don’t know what you are missing because the sweetness of the jam combined with the heat and flavor of the Jalapeño Pepper is absolutely amazing! You can remove the seeds for a less spicy taste or, like me, leave all of the seeds in for a nice bite of heat. Either way, this is so simple to make and delicious with only four ingredients.
