Recipes that use jams and marmalades inspired by Blue Chair and Christine Ferber
I've gotten hooked on making jams and marmalades. Attended a fantastic jam making class at Blue Chair in the bay area and purchased Christine Ferber's Mes Confitures. Now what can I do with all of these jams other than spread on toast or goat cheese?
I would love some pork,fish or chicken recipes recipes. Maybe a linzor cookie recipe or other dessert recipe? Here are a few of my jams....
Quince with Christmas Flavors
Fig with Pear
Peaches, pluots and blueberries
Cherries with candied orange
Green tomatoe with apple and orange
Grown up strawberry with drambuie
Any input is greatly appreciated!
Honestly, you can take pretty much any jam or preserve, thin it with some cider, add some hot sauce if you want, and use it as a glaze for baked, broiled or grilled meats. Those would all be great with pork or chicken. And that way you're not loading it down with a lot of ingredients that make you lose your amazing looking products.
I also like chicken salad on crusty bread with brie, apple slices and jam, and a lot of those look like the flavors would work.
Welcome to the addiction of jamming and marm making.
About that goat cheese.... crostini spread with goat cheese, fig jam and prosciutto is one of my fav snacks. :D I've also used fig jam as a glaze on a pork tenderloin and added it to a red wine sauce for a pot roast I crocked. I've also added a blob of plum jam to asian sweet/sour recipe's
I've added strawberry jam to pound cake batter and jazzed up cream cheese frosting by adding a Tbs of jam to carry on the flavor. Glaze a galette. Ina Garten makes a really good jam thumbprint cookie that I've used my tangerine marm in. They're rolled in coconut before they're baked.
I think you can use it in just about anything. :)
