Sounds yummy thank you for posting this recipe. Would this jam be more of a sweet and hot chili sauce if you threw in some chopped hot peppers like the way pepper jelly is made with Jalapenos? It looks really appetizing!

yes by all means chopped hot pepper will go very well or use more of red chili pepper.
Thanks for the ideas.
