This jam pairs perfectly with a chunk of brie and homemade ciabatta!
A couple of weekends ago mum and I ventured out to the latest designer-like grocery outlet that has been the talk of the town of late. Granted everything in store looked amazing with so many interesting items from all over the world but the prices were more than shocking.
You can't go wrong with roasted garlic + onions + balsamic vinegar.
The Stonewall Kitchen’s Roasted Garlic and Onion Jam caught my eye and although I was very tempted to purchase it on the spot I decided to be prudent and figured that I could probably replicate this jam at home for a fraction of the price. And I did!
To be honest it wasn't so much the Onion Jam that caught my attention rather it was the promise of a jar full of roasted garlic goodness! I love garlic so much that I could probably have roasted/steamed/pickled garlic at any time of the day. Gross, I know.
Roasting garlic is so easy and satisfying!
Anyway that aside, this jam/chutney/spread – whatever you want to call it, is fabulous! Pair it with slices of meat as part of a sandwich, serve it on a cheese board or use it as a pizza topping. A really versatile, sweet-savoury jam that has got me hooked!
The balance of flavours of onions, balsamic vinegar and roasted garlic is a wondrous thing however I would have preferred if the taste of the roasted garlic would be more prevalent and in the future will probably increase the number of garlic heads from two to about four. This however is totally up to you and you're a bit of a garlic freak like I am then a couple additional garlic heads won't go amiss!
