follow up- in case you know, you aren’t from austria


so in my haze of excitement for all things food in little jars –  yesterday i realized i linked to ellja’s burrata recipe, which was ahem, not in english, just from her comment on sunday suppers, which of course WAS in english. [p.s. – don’t you freaking wish you could read German ummm her recipes look AMAZING i’m dying that i can’t translate more of them!!]

SOOO i went for it and tracked down her email and requested the recipe. AND :) at 5:13am (about 7:13pm her time) it landed in my inbox. I can’t wait to try it…and my brain is already conjuring up other exciting things to put this jam on!

STRAWBERRY CHILI JAM – from Ellja of  2 steps away from paradise

400 gram strawberries (cut into slices)
2 red Chili (cut into small strips)
130 g canning sugar
juice of 1/2 lemon

First bring strawberries, chili, lemon juice and sugar to the boil and cook it for 3 – 5 Minutes. Fill the hot jam into a fruit jar and cover the top with a little bit of rum or other alcoholics, it´s because of the germs.

Now turn the jar upside down and cool it down. Store in a cool place. Finished!

On french bread with the filling of young spinach and burrata, and topped with the jam, it is really amazing!


Thank you Ellja! ;)
