Savory jams are great as an appetizer, and adding a thick, rich layer of your favorite cream cheese turns an ordinary piece of toasted bread into a delectable bite.
I first made this jam for Thanksgiving, but everyone enjoyed it so much, I made it again to give as gifts to my friends at Christmas. The sweet components of the roasted garlic, onions and brown sugar perfectly balance the acid from the vinegar and the heat in the chili flakes.
When I think of Halloween, one specific food memory immediately comes to mind – the smell of Halloween candy. If you used to trick or treat with a plastic pumpkin bucket, you know what I mean. All of the chocolate, gummy, sweet, sour smells mingling together as one were a child’s dream.
Variety is the spice of life, especially when it comes to food. So what better way to add spice to your plate than these, sweet, savory flavor infused butters? Each option is super easy to make and can be stored in the refrigerator for up to two weeks while your imagination explores creative ways to cook with them. I’ve added a few suggestions for each flavor to get you started.
