Mango Papaya Rum Chutney is delightful in a sandwich, or on a grilled pork chop, or on grilled fish. You can’t go wrong with this jar. Sweet and sticky Apricot Marmalade is wonderful on a biscuit or on a scone. You can mix it with some Marscapone cheese and whipped cream to fill crepes. This recipe is made with dried apricots so you can make it year round. The dried apricots give it an intense apricot flavor. Mixed Pickled Asparagus and Carrots. This jar is great to have around as you can use a snack, in salads, and they make great stir sticks for your Bloody Mary. For our sit down meal we will be having grilled pork chops, mixed greens salad and crepes.

See you in class.

Chocolate Marmalade Cookies


There are so many ways to use orange marmalade. I have used it in muffins, as a glaze on chicken, salad dressings and cocktails. Today I had a student reach out to me and this is what she had to say..

OMG….on a New Zealand cooking website I saw a recipe for chocolate orange cookies. They looked soft and chewy. They used a chocolate that already had orange in it. Do you think you could put orange marmalade into a cookie mix and it would work??? Funny, I used to hate orange and chocolate together and now I am loving it….

After reading this email I walk into the kitchen and created Chocolate Marmalade Cookies. So yes, you can have your orange chocolate cookies and enjoy eating them.

Here is the recipe enjoy!
