This time of year I have been buying bags full of organic citrus. I usually freeze the zest if I'm not using it right away, but here's another great, easy way to preserve it, and there are so many uses for this great condiment.
This recipe recalls the very first preserves I ever made: pineapple lime jam. The rumor is that the result was so exquisite that my father-in-law ate it straight out of the jar. I’m sorry that it’s taken me nearly 6 years to revisit the combination.
This mixed citrus liqueur is a greatest hits mix tape of winter citrusy goodness! Cardamom, cinnamon, cloves and allspice add a gentle kiss of spice. Mix it up on Monday, enjoy it by Friday! It's great to sip on the rocks, or shaken into a martini!
The song "Sippin' on Gin and Juice" will come to mind as you enjoy this blackberry jam with the delicious addition of gin. A condiment to make even Snoop Dogg get up early. Please note you don't have to enjoy rap music to like this jam.
