Hey Food in Jars mastery challenge participants! Looking for something fun to do with those marmalades you all put up in January? How about using them as an ingredient in a cocktail? A couple weeks ago through a Instagram page I came across the cocktail blog Beautiful Booze. Reserving a little bit of my fan girl status, I admit that I instantly bookmarked several of her recipes. Not only have I found myself wooed by her blog layout, photography, and cocktail creativity, but also by the fact that the author is super cute. I was surprised by the number of cocktails that I could already make with the limited ingredients in my slowly growing home bar.

When I saw that Natalie’s breakfast martini sour recipe called for orange marmalade, the idea for this deployed goods post began. My plan included spicing the recipe up with a bit of my Angostura Blood Orange Marmalade. The result? An sweet and tart martini sour. Obviously delicious for breakfast, but enjoyable anytime of the day. Cheers!

Chana Masala Hummus- Putting Up with ErinChana Masala Hummus- Putting Up with Erin

I’m having a pickle party! Tonight! People, pickles, pickletinis, pickle-backs! I’m pretty dang excited. While frantically cleaning and preparing goods for tonight (all in the midst of the impending storm of the century that is hitting the NE tonight), I figured I’d get creative with my jarred goods… more recipes to come. Originally when I put up canned chana masala earlier this summer, it was with the intentions of canning hummus. Turns out you can’t put up tahini (even though the jars were pressure canned) due to the sesame oils. This hummus recipe is intended to include this canned chana masala recipe… BUT, if you aren’t trying to make the pressure canned masala recipe, you can simply add the raw ingredients (tomatoes, spices, garlic, etc.) to the hummus before you process it. Yum.
