Optional additions: 1 Tbsp seeded mustard; or ½ tsp chilli flakes; or 20g dried cranberries (good served with Christmas roast meats).

I have a coffee machine so I use 2 double shots each with 25ml water. The coffee taste is not at all obvious, it just adds more depth to all the other flavours.

This is the most amazing jam and can be used with so many things.  For example:it will turn your humble burger into a gourmet burger,

  • boring sandwich fillings get a lift,
  • bake it on top or in the middle of your meatloaf,
  • inside your toastie with melted cheese,
  • a tasty sauce to eat with your omelette,
  • with your breakfast scrambled eggs,
  • as part of a party charcuterie or cheese platter,
  • as a finger food spread on crackers with cream cheese,
  • or fill small tart or vol au vent cases,
  • serve alongside roast meats,
  • BBQ meat condiment,
  • on top of a T-Bone steak,
  • on top of baked potatoes,
  • as a pizza base sauce.
