The Chipotle is a  smoked and dried Jalapeno chilli and this product from Atkins and Potts uses them to make a jam. we have not had a Atkins and Potts product to review before, they are a popular product in deli’s and specialist retailers, their range is massive and includes not one but three Chilli Jams ( Green Bird’s Eye Chilli Jam and Yellow Chilli Jam)  as well Chipotle Mayonnaise, Salsa’s, Marinades and Sauces.

Atkins and Potts - Chipotle Chilli Jam

On opening there is a smell of sweet chilli and smoke, I guess what you would expect from a chilli jam, the jam is of a lumpy consistancy with pieces of Pepper and Onion in a warm sweet sticky. This is not a hot jam, like some that we have tried in the last few month, and could be enjoyed by everyone, not just and extreme chillihead.

Ingredients: Sugar, Red Pepper, White Wine Vinegar, Water, Tomato Puree, Chipotle Chilli Puree (Chipotle Peppers, Water, Tomato, ions, White Wine Vinegar, Salt, Chilli Powder), Dried Onions, Concentrated Lemon Juice, Salt, Garlic Puree.

The main flavours I am getting from this is the Smoky Chipotles, Peppers and Onions, it does remind me of a an Onion Jam that has not quite set.

In 2006 it won a Gold Great Taste award, and I must say I am really enjoying eating this as I write the review, I could see this being used as glaze on roast pork, it smoky sweetness would also work well with a strong farmhouse cheddar, or how about adding it to a tomato soup.

The jam comes in an 180g jar at £2.95 is is not expensive for a specialist product
