Burnt Fig Jam......What do I do with it?!?!
So I was giving a jar of Maggie Beers 'Burnt Fig Jam'
It acutally isnt a very pleasent tasting jam on it's own or on toast
it's extremely strong and needs something to go with it or cut through it
Does anyone have any ideas?! A cake maybe? I'm totally unaware of how to use it!
And I definitely dont want to throw it away, I think it could work well if used correctly
Help would be greatly appreciated please!
you could layer it into a trifle with a not too sweet vanilla-y custard, some crumbled shortbread or crumbled genoise or sponge or angel food cake, or ladyfingers... some chopped nuts if you like
make a fig and gorgonzola pizza along with some candied walnuts and arugula
swirl it into a basic muffin or cupcake batter before baking
fig and grilled cheese sandwich - preserves, goat cheese, lemon zest, basil, and a drizzle of honey on whole wheat, pumpernickel or cinnamon raisin bread
combine with ricotta cheese to make a dessert ravioli filling
...hope you enjoy it!
