José Gourmet Red Pepper Jam

$12.00

José Gourmet Red Pepper Jam is sweet that is surely the most unusual and at the same time the most surprising. It comes from the combination of red pepper with white wine vinegar and sugar.

Red-colored fruits are known to be powerful antioxidant allies. Its effects are more than proven and far outweigh the small disadvantages that are sometimes unfairly associated with some of them: the idea that peppers are indigestible, for example, takes away from their powerful nutritional action. Another fixed notion: orange is the fruit of vitamin C, right? Yes, but peppers have a higher concentration of this vitamin! But no persuading is required, peppers will effortlessly win any fight. From what we have been told, any attempt at resistance is a waste of time! Surrender as you wish, armed with toast or saltines.

Some discoveries are true inventions!

Description

The red pepper is part of the tradition of Portuguese cuisine, whether in a simple salad or as a base for a stew or any other typical Portuguese dish. It is undoubtedly an obligatory presence in all the kitchens of their country. With a bright red color, intense and bittersweet flavor and liquid consistency it is ideal to accompany grilled meat, fresh and dry cheeses and also some conservas.

For José Gourmet Red Pepper Jam, they use Portuguese red pepper, as they have a large production region located between Ribatejo and Alto Alentejo. The production process of this jam is also unique and unusual. Once the red pepper is received, it is opened, the seeds are removed and sliced into generous pieces. It is then washed and chopped. Then they add the white wine vinegar and the sugar, remaining in low heat for a few hours until it is refined. After the jam is purified they start to pour, also manually, jar by jar and then proceed to pasteurization. When removed, they cool naturally and only the next day are all jars checked one by one to ensure that the pasteurization has been done correctly.

Finally, they clean the jars, label and pack them. One more production is ready!!
