‘Tis the season to get your canning on. Which means it’s peach coriander habanero jelly for the win.
I’ll be honest, I’m not a huge canner (oh dear….there’s an awkward pause for a huge can or big cans joke…)..Okay, pause complete. So, as I was saying, I don’t can often but when you live in Utah and it’s over 100 degrees out and there isn’t much to do other than act like a Golden Retriever or cook…I get my canning on. Hence, I present my peach coriander habanero jelly.
Don’t get me wrong, hiking, biking, climbing, and being outdoors is great, but not when it’s over a 100 degrees! At those temperatures even up the canyon it’s still 80+ degrees, which is just bonkers! So it’s a no go sis! Siigh, the anti-Utah rants are just so easy to do, the weather and the people make it a natural default hobby. Aside from that sidebar, I love peaches. I feel like that’s the crux of this post. Utah, bad, peaches, good. The end. But let’s flesh it out just a tad more, or perhaps just not sound so crazy.
Peaches are delightful regardless of how you’re consuming them (ok maybe not regardless, but in most of the conventional ways). I love them fresh, stewed, curried, or in jams and jellies. The nice thing about canning them is that that way you can enjoy them year round. I especially like making jams or jellies because they’re perfect on toast or even for a charcuterie board. The nice thing about this particular jelly is that it’s the perfect combo of sweet, savory, and spicy. The peaches provide that fresh fruity sweetness, the coriander really give it deep earthy warm notes, and the habanero really cuts through the sweetness to give it a spicy pop. All in all it’s a great marriage of flavors in one tiny condiment.
There aren’t too many things that can go wrong with making jellies, so just follow the directions and you should be fine. In the off chance that your jelly is still runny, just follow the steps below of adding more sugar and pectin and you should be golden. Oh and don’t be a hero with a sieve. If you’re going to make jams and jellies spend the money on a food mill! It’ll take a 2 hr task and make it 10 minutes of easy effort.
