Jam is usually something you’d think of as sweet and good on toast but this jam is something special. Whilst walking around a local exhibition I stumbled across a food stall with some free tasters including Thai dressing and artichoke pesto. The one that interested me most though was the Jumping Jack Chilli Jam. I found myself returning to the stall plenty of times to give this a taste and eventually ended up buying a pot.
Firstly it’s not really like jam. You can’t use it on a cake. It’s an onion chutney spiked with red chillies and bourbon and has a sweet and sour taste to it. It’s not hot but it is tasty and works very well on a bacon sandwich instead of ketchup.
