This is a really good jam with an Indian twist. Just be careful while boiling it -- it shouldn't get too hard sticky. Take it off the flame before it thickens too much. Read More

This is a really nice recipe. I think it needs some preservative if you want to keep it for months but i kept it in my fridge and it stayed fine for two months. Read More

I split the chile pepper down the middle and removed the seeds before tossing it into the pot for more punch. I also used less ginger than called for and Concorde wine. Spectacular on whole wheat english muffins with melted butter. What a treat! Read More

this stuff is amazing. Love the ginger flavor. Made a batch without the jalapeno; simply amazing as an ice cream topping! I probably put 2 T of ginger in my match because I love the extra flavor Read More
