Chef Tips  —

The other day I did a beet salad with apple onion jam.  The beets were roasted and peeled.  I made a burnt citrus and argan oil vinaigrette. 1:2 ratio. Garnished with a little chevre and watercress it was so nice!



Apple Onion Jam Recipe

In one pot start:

2 cups white sugar, taken to a dry caramel.

¼ cup butter


In second pot:


2 cups diced shallots

1 clove garlic

2 quarts of apples, peeled and diced, no seeds.

2 star anise

1 cinnamon stick

10 allspice berries

Salt to taste


When nice and caramelized, blend and pass through an chinois.


Upon both pots being ready, you combine and mix.  Chill in a cooler and taste and season with salt or lemon juice as needed.
