Something wonderful caught my eye today by the name of Gourmet Jars. Scrumptious jams, spiced nuts and granola are on offer, but it is the jams that drew me in. Exotic combination of flavours that sound perfect on a piece of toast. But my head first went to summer bbqs and poolsides - These to me sounds like the perfect base to scrumptious BBQ marinades!
Be it the Mango Jalapenos Rum jam for some sticky sweet chicken wings or the Kiwi Orange Whiskey Marmelade for juicy lamb chops!
Will keep you all posted after the taste test!

Anyone of you happen to try it do let me know how it fares.
So I was finally lucky to get to try Gourmet Jars. That's right I did say lucky! These jams are dee-liscious! I was hoping they'd be good and they most certainly were. The three I got to try were:
- Mango & Jalapeno - This is what Indian summers are all about. What about the Jalapeno you ask? Well this is 2012, a regular green chilly just wont do now will it. Great harmony of flavours. Starts sweet and ends with a tangy kick. Made slightly chunky for texture. Would do very well with some melted bree - perfect for a no fuss party snack.
- Cinnamon & Apple - Yum! A smoother paste like consistency. This would be so delicious in a Turnover. Get it.
- Banana Rum Jam - I was a bit apprehensive about this one. Had some yucky notions of how banana would fare in a jam. But I am happy to report that this turned out to be my favourite jam!! Spread it on a crepe or some walnut bread and you have a less guilty banana cake alternative. The flavours are exactly that - a very rich and divine banana cake! Loved it.
I highly recommend Gourmet Jars preservatives free, fun and dangerously tasty jams. Get your own jar... !
