Chilli Jam

THIS JAM…it has become such a favourite condiment for us. I am pretty sure you will be addicted too. It is authentically Vietnamese in origin, (though as always, I have changed it to suit my own ends!) However, it really will go very well with anything that needs a little punch of sweet heat.

It appears in The Weekend Table and although the book isn't quite out there yet, I had to share it early as I use it literally every week at least once! We make it whenever we run out. I have it on just about anything that needs a kicker. And although it is Vietnamese in origin, it goes very well with all Asian dishes on the side.

So there you have it kids...a sneak peek! Beautiful picture from the lovely Samira, just like the entire book. I mean who knew a Chilli Jam picture could be so enticing?
