Fruit Essentials: Raspberry Jalapeno Fruit Spread

Andy Anderson !


This is an easy/peasy recipe to make and will live in the fridge for up to a year. Although I doubt it will last that long.

Easy to make with a minimum of ingredients, and tastes awesome… Oh, and by the way, it only takes about 30 minutes to makes.

Use this as a base, vary the fruits… Have fun with it. As a matter of fact, if you do not want the heat, leave the peppers out.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Fruit Essentials: Raspberry Jalapeno Fruit Spread


  2. You will need a medium size saucepan to make this recipe.
  3. Gather your ingredients (mise en place).
  4. Crush the berries, add them to a saucepan over medium-high heat, and then add all the ingredients; except the pectin.
  5. Bring to a rolling boil, while constantly stirring, about 4 – 5 minutes.
  6. Because you are making a fruit spread, the best tool to use here is a wooden spoon.

  8. Remove from the heat and skim off any foam that sits on top.
  9. Add to jars and allow to completely cool before placing into the refrigerator.
