This strawberry jam has the nice warmth of jalapeno and serrano peppers. Best served over warmed cream cheese and Ritz crackers.
Sterilize 12 half-pint canning jars and lids for at least 5 minutes. Set aside.
In a large stockpot, add strawberries, peppers, lemon juice, and pectin, and stir. Cook at high till boiling. Add sugar and stir till dissolved. Bring back to boil and cook for an additional minute. Remove from heat. The mixture may be foamy on top.
Using a funnel, ladle jam into jars, stirring before to get rid of the foam and to distribute the strawberries/peppers. Wipe down edges of jars with a damp rag and top with lids and screw on rings.
Bring water to boil in canning pot. Place jars in pot—water should be at least 1 inch above the jar tops. Process jars for 10 minutes in boiling water. Turn off heat, remove jars from pot to a wood surface, and let cool overnight. Do not tip jars or push on the lids until the following morning.
Serve over warmed cream cheese (1 minute in the microwave) and Ritz crackers. Enjoy!

If you are lucky enough to live where the cherries are aplenty I advise you to print out this Sweet Cherry Vanilla Jam recipe and tape it somewhere that you will not forget about it when the cherries come into season! Or you can use frozen cherries like I did.
This recipe was made using the new Ball Jam & Jelly Maker but you can make it the traditional way also.
