Celebrate National Burger Day with our Chilli Jams

Today marks the annual National Burger Day and we think the best way to celebrate this is with chilli jam. Our chilli jams taste delicious in burgers and here are a few ideas to get you started.

Jalapeño Chilli Cheese Burger

Our Jalapeño Jam is the obvious choice for adding into any burger. We love it simply added to a grilled beef burger, topped with melted cheese and served in a brioche bun.

We find our Lemon Drop Chilli Jam works really well in a Vegan Burger. Super spicy with a citrusy kick, this is not for the faint hearted!

Happy National Burger Day! Share your recipes with us on Instagram @singlevarietyco.

Spotlight On....Jalapeño Jam

This week I thought I’d focus on one of our best selling jams which is our Jalapeño Jam. Our range of chilli jams are incredibly popular and versatile, from being used as a condiment, a glaze or in place of a chutney.

 
 

The jalapeño chilli, pronounced ‘halapeno’, is a bullet shaped green chilli originating from Xalapa in Mexico which is what the chilli was named after. It is most commonly picked and eaten when it is still green, much like in our Jalapeño Jam, although if allowed to fully ripen it would turn red. Today, Jalapeño chillies have become very popular and mainstream in the UK due to the embedding of Mexican cuisine in our diets.

When it comes to our Jalapeño Jam, we are very proud that it won a Great Taste Award in 2017. The judges commented that ‘ The jalapeno aroma is excellent. The balance of sweet and heat works very well and the length of flavour is just wonderful. We loved its versatility and spent quite a while listing how it could be used.  Altogether a delicious, lively, well balanced piquant jelly.'

Jalapeño Jam is delicious with cheese, meats and even eggs. With that in mind, here are a few ways of using our Jalapeño Jam.

Jalapeño Jam makes a great accompaniment or topping for lots of different things. Loaded nachos is a firm favourite and rather than adding slices of jalapeños, drizzle over some Jalapeño Jam instead.

Eggs and Jalapeño Jam is a incredible combination. Try serving it with scrambled egg, drizzling over poached egg, or even with egg & soldiers smothering jalapeño jam on toast before dipping into a a runny egg.

Halloumi Kebabs

Cut halloumi and red onion into chunks, and cut cherry tomatoes in half. Thread onto kebab skewers, and grill on the BBQ, turning occasionally until cooked. Serve with Jalapeño Jam to dip your kebabs in to.

Grill corn on the cobs on the BBQ until cooked, turning occasionally. Smother Lemon Drop Chilli Jam all over the cooked corn cobettes. Return to the BBQ for a few minutes to caramelise the jam onto the corn.

Once your burger is cooked on the BBQ, add some cheese and leave until melted. Serve in a soft glazed bun with a generous dollop of your favourite chilli jam.

Breakfast Jam Ideas

Breakfast is considered to be the most important meal of the day. When you mention breakfast and jam together, most people just think of jam on toast. Well, here at Single Variety Co we’ve been thinking about our top 5 ideas of how to kick start your day with delicious ways to use jam at breakfast.

 

1.    Porridge

Dollop your favourite jam on top of porridge. We find our Ben Starav Blackcurrant Preserve works really well here.

2.    Yoghurt and Granola

Add jam to your yoghurt and granola to give it a fruity twist. Our favourite combination is Husk & Honey granola, with thick Greek yoghurt and a generous helping of our Flair Strawberry Preserve.

3.    Sausage Sandwich

This is the ultimate weekend treat breakfast. Smother jalapeno jam over sausages in thick slices of sourdough bread.

4.    Smoked Salmon and Avocado on Toast

Keeping on the sourdough theme, top some toasted sourdough bread with smashed avocado, slices of smoked salmon and finish off with our super fiery Lemon Drop Chilli Jam. This breakfast will definitely wake your taste buds up in a morning!

 

5.    Smoothie

After all that, we think you’ll need something to wash it down with. Blend a spoonful of jam with fresh or frozen fruit. I love our Maravilla Raspberry Preserve blended with frozen mango, banana and some coconut milk. 

Hopefully this has given you inspiration to try something different with your jam at breakfast. We’re working on lots of new jam ideas in 2019 to share with you, so do keep checking back for more.
