Strawberry Jalapeno Muffins

We were having some close friends over for brunch and I wanted to have a special muffin to serve. I came up with a Strawberry Jalapeno Muffin using my Strawberry Jalapeno Jam that I made this summer. We just loved this muffin and I hope you enjoy them.

4 pints of Strawberries 
7 cups sugar
2 tablespoons Jalapeno seeded and chopped fine
1 packet of Sure Jell
1/2 teaspoons butter
Be Sure and Read The Directions In The Sure Jell Box Before Beginning This Process
Wash, and remove the stems from the berries. Mash the berries with a masher. Place 5 cups of mashed berries into a heavy sauce pan. Mix in the seeded Jalapeno that has been chopped fine. Stir in one packet of the Sure Jell and mix thoroughly. Add the butter. The butter will reduce the foaming. Bring the berry mixture to a full rolling boil stirring constantly. Quickly stir in the sugar stirring constantly and return to a full rolling boil. Boil for exactly 1 minute stirring constantly and remove from heat. Skim off any foam.
Ladle into prepared jars and seal. Process in a hot water bath for 10 minutes. Remove jars and let cool . Make sure that the lid has sealed before storing in a cool dry place.

Enjoy Your Muffin!

Peace and Joy

  1. These look delicious! I have recently tried my hand at canning and can't wait until summer to make some delicious jams and jellies. The Strawberry jalepeno definitely is a must try!

  7. Those look good Miz Helen. I've never tried jalepeno jelly thought I've heard of it. Mainly I'm been afraid of it being really hot. Sounds like the strawberry is a nice combination with it though, so I bet ti's good. You're welcome to add this or any other recipe you have this week to my party, which starts tonight. See you later this week at yours.

  11. Oh, Miz Helen, I just love your strawberry-jalapeno jam. I learned something new; adding a little butter to bring to a foam...wow! Also I love the spice of the jalapeno. Will try this real soon, and link it back to you. Just wondering about the muffin recipe...is it plain vanilla?
    Will link up for sure for Thursday's Full Plate!

  12. Hi Elisabeth,
    The muffin is plain vanilla, I wanted the Strawberry Jalapeno Jam to be the star so I did not put any extract or any other flavor in the muffin. You could however put any kind of flavor in the muffin and it would be great. Thanks for stopping by, its always great to see you!
