Ploughman’s with Chilli Jam

Great for al-fresco eating, try teaming Fireflame Chilli Jam with thick granary bread, ham, cheese and salad for a spicy twist to a classic lunch.

Lemon Drop Chilli Quiche

Quiche is the perfect summer lunch and serving it with some Lemon Drop Chilli Jam on the side gives it a delightful spicy twist.

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.

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.
