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.

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.

Lemon Drop Chilli Vegan Burger

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.

Ice Cream

Our fruit preserves make the perfect topping for ice cream. Alternatively, soften some ice cream and ripple the jam through it and freeze again before serving. We love our King George Blackberry Preserve rippled through vanilla ice cream.

Fruit & Yoghurt

Our fruit preserves also make a tasty addition to fruit and yoghurt. Take your favourite summer fruits, top with yoghurt and a generous helping of fruit preserve. I love a mix of raspberries, nectarines and cherries with greek yoghurt and finished off with our Alphonso Mango Preserve.

All of our chilli jams and fruit preserves are available on online now. For more ideas follow us @singlevarietyco and check out our website.

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.
