This fiery, sweet and sticky jam is the perfect partner for a variety of dishes. Make up a jar of this and keep it in the fridge ready to dip chips in or to feature on a cheeseboard.

Pour the vinegar into a saucepan and heat to a boil. Add the sugar and honey, then wait for the sugar to dissolve.

Add the peppers and chilli to the vinegar mix. Boil gently for 20 minutes, until the mixture becomes jam-like (it will thicken more as it cools).

Allow to cool, then pour into a sealable jar – the jam will keep for several weeks. Serve with a selection of crackers and cheese.
