Plum Delicious

I just got my shipment of small-batch Stuck-Up Jams, which are AWESOME and made by my chef cousin, Klee. There are just a few jars left on Etsy, which would make great hostess gifts for the holidays. My very favorite is the tart Santa Rosa Red Plum jam, which I like to spread on whole grain toast with butter and a sprinkling of salt.

Stuck Up Santa Rosa Red Plum Jam

For apricot jam lovers, the Apricot Clove is divine. Tonight I’m riffing off an old technique that my butcher taught me when I lived in Paris in my early 20s. I used to mix marmalade with a dollop of spicy dijon mustard, and spread over a small roasting chicken. I’m thinking the apricot clove will be a delicious stand-in for the marmalade. Chef Klee says he also uses the tart plum jam for a glaze on duck or pork, which sounds like a perfect plan for dinner tomorrow night.
