Crimson Jam

  • 6 large red bell peppers
  • 2 Tbsp salt
  • 1 cup cider vinegar
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • Red food coloring image placeholder

Seed the peppers and grind them coarsely. Put the peppers in a large bowl, add the salt, cover, and let stand overnight.

Drain off about half of the liquid, pour the peppers into a heavy saucepan, and add the vinegar and sugar. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for about 1 hour, stirring occasionally.

Remove from heat and add red food coloring, a few drops at a time, to make the jam bright red. Cool slightly, stirring occasionally, and spoon into sterilized jars. Store in a cool, dark place.
