Medium, maybe, but not bland!
The heat of a pepper is measured in Scoville units, a medium-heat pepper will deliver anywhere between 5,000 to 15,000 units, which means that it’s going to have a decent kick in salsas, marinades and believe it or not, jams.
Can you eat it raw? Sure! The heat usually comes form the ribs and seeds, so if you want to reduce the amount of heart, remove them completely and never rub your eyes or nose after touching these peppers.
Small fruit is hotter
Canned or frozen

Sugar Rush Peach Chili Jam
We know, we know, a chili jam might seem like something crazy, but let us make a case for a nice Sugar Rush Peach Chili (from our Crazy Hot Peppers and Friends collection) jam accompanying your charcuterie board, or as a touch of spice to your grilled cheese sandwiches, even a dollop or five of this jam added to a marinate will reward you with some mild heat and the sugar of the jam will boost the flavor of all the ingredients.
Give this jam a try, we think you’ll enjoy it.
