Weekly special for the Chef’s Handyman recipe blog: Orange bell pepper jam!
Marianne’s family loves extraordinary tastes, especially for marmalades and jams. She is keen on trying new recipes whenever she finds time to produce new flavors and combinations. So I get from her new delicious recipes for the Chef’s Handyman recipe blog. My mother is also a great jam producer. She likes more the fruity fresh tastes and Marianne is an expert in non-traditional combinations.
When Marianne visited me at home and was explaining her new creations, my family members where extremely unsure about the result. Orange and bell pepper as jam! None of us could have any idea about the taste. But when we all tried her new experiment, we all were very surprised and delighted. What a great marmalade recipe for the Chef’s Handyman recipe blog! This jam can also be used as chutney for Indian dishes or as topping for soft cheese.
