Why? Because you can! And pickle, and jam, or otherwise celebrate the resurgence of the domestic arts our forebears held so dear. Put on your best apron and step into our kitchen, won't you?
Strawberry Margarita jam inspired by Mexican tequila and local strawberries. Using low-sugar pectin, the fresh tastes of berry, tart lime, and smooth tequila are allowed to shine like the summer sun.
I combined wild blackberries and chipotle chiles to create a warm, smoky, flavorful jelly. This is a great substitute for cranberry sauce and tastes amazing on a turkey sandwich or in a glaze for ham or turkey. Made with low-sugar pectin, too!
