The versatile jabuticaba jam from the Brazil Box works well in so many preparations! Once you’ve tried the ideas below, breakfast toast will never be the same again.
1. Ice a cake
Spread a thin layer of jam on top of your favorite cake before covering it in frosting. Jabuticaba jam imparts slight acidity and sweetness that accentuates the flavor of both the cake and the icing.
2. Make a marinade
Marinate chicken wings in a mix of jam, stock, minced garlic, minced ginger, sesame seeds, and salt and pepper. Broil until the chicken is cooked through, then brush again with glaze and return to the broiler to crisp.
3. Shake into a cocktail
Mix jabuticaba jam into your favorite cocktail. We love cranberry juice, seltzer, a lime wedge, and ice mixed with vodka and gin.
4. Mix into muffin batter
Swirl the jam directly into the batter just before baking. It’s a delicious way to add fruity flavor to any basic muffin recipe.
5. Make thumbprint cookies
Thumbprint cookies are an easy way to make colorful, fruity cookies. Simply create an indent in each cookie with your thumb before baking and drop a spoonful of jam into the indent.
6. Spruce up a grilled cheese
Cheese and jam is an incredible sweet-and-savory combination. Simply add a tablespoon of jam to your favorite grilled cheese recipe before grilling.
7. Whisk into dressing
Combine jam, vinegar, minced shallot, and salt and pepper. Slowly drizzle in olive oil and whisk until emulsified. This dressing makes a spectacular frisée, strawberry, poppy seed, endive, and walnut salad.
8. Reduce into a sauce
After cooking chicken in the oven, transfer the pan juices to a small saucepan and cook them with minced shallot. Add white wine and jam, reduce by half, and stir in chicken stock; cook until thick and syrupy. Finish the preparation with butter, salt, and pepper.
