Easy-Peasy Strawberry Jalapeño Cast-Iron-Skillet Jam

Easy-Peasy Strawberry Jalapeño Cast-Iron-Skillet Jam

I am going camping this weekend with my foodie camping friends, and I assigned myself appetizers. I always like baguette slices dipped in melted brie with pepper jelly on top, so I figured that would be a good one to try to make over the campfire.

Not only am I going to try to make it over the campfire, I decided to make my own jam for the first time in my entire life. And whoah, it is good. It is so good, in fact, that I made another batch so that I can give some to a friend this week. And I don’t even eat jam!

Adapted ever-so-slightly from For the Love of Cooking.

  2. Rinse jalapeno, cut in half lengthwise and remove seeds and pulp. Dice very small.
  3. Place strawberries into cast iron skillet (I used my no. 8 Griswold Slant Logo EPU – it’s 10.5″ in diameter). Add jalapeños and sugar.

  4. Zest 1/2 of a large lemon into the skillet, then juice 1/2 lemon over the mixture in the skillet.
  5. Heat on low, stirring frequently, for about 30 minutes. Once you can move the mixture to the side of the pan and have it not run back, it’s done!
