Karimix Jalapeno Ginger Jam

Karimix Jalapeno Ginger Jam

This is the second new Karimix product we have reviewed from their new range, and it looks great in the new packaging

On opening it has a great aroma of fresh Jalapeños, the jam is packed full of Jalapeños flesh, it is not a set style of jam, more like a  thick sauce.  The jam is a nice green colour, as you would hope from Jalapeños.

Ingredients: Sugar, Water, Jalapeno Chillies 12.6%, Chillies, Ginger 8%, Vinegar, Spices, Fruit Juices, Pectin, Salt.

Jar kindly provided by www.karimix.com

The taste is instantly of Jalapeños, but sweet, then the Ginger kicks in, it ‘s warmth fills your mouth, it is not a hot chilli heat, but a back of the throat warmth, that only comes from Ginger.

It is a very yummy jam, and not like many of the others I have tried, all of which I have enjoyed, but this has that Jalapeño flavour just about right.

This jam has not yet made it on to the Karimix web site, so we are not sure what the price will be, but we look forward to it arriving in our local supermarket/speciality store

(8/10) (If priced well)

On the karimix brochure they had this great sounding recipe, we are going to try it soon, but in the mean time here it is:-
