Cranberry jalapeño jam is a perfect season-changing flavor. Late summer spice meets autumnal tang. It’s a delicious jam for use during the holidays to deliver an extra seasonal zip to the table. Though, don’t let it festiveness keep you from making it any time of the year. It’s just as tasty in summer.

The current recipe calls for seeding the jalapeño peppers, and that provides a tickle of heat. If you want more, leave those jalapeño seeds in. It’ll provide the extra kick spice lovers crave.
