This spicy jam is more than just a delectable spread for biscuits or sandwiches, it's also a potent seasoning agent for cooking all types of savory dishes. Use it whenever you want a kick of fiery heat as well as subtle sweetness, for a perfect balance of flavors. The jam includes red bell peppers, garlic cloves, balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, and grated lime zest. Try it on toasts that are spread with ricotta.

  • 100 grams caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
