Quick & simple plum jam with decadent dark chocolate!
1 cup chopped plums (skinned, if you prefer)
1/2 cup sugar (may vary depending on the ripeness and sweetness of your plums)
2 tbsp lemon juice
¼ cup grated, good quality dark chocolate (75% or above)
1 teaspoon Chai Spice (optional)
Place plums, sugar, and lemon juice in a stainless steel saucepan over medium high heat. Keep stirring to keep the plum mixture from sticking to the bottom. Once the mixture reaches a boil, turn the heat down, and simmer until the mixture reaches the desired jam consistency. At this time, test the jell setting point by following any of the methods given here.
Add grated chocolate and stir until it melts and incorporates well. Add the Chai Spice and mix well.
Note: The warm spices like cinnamon, cardamom and nutmeg in the Chai Spice complements the sweetness of the dark chocolate in the jam.
From Rotisserie to bone broth
This post has a strange title, doesn’t it? But it is the right way of travel for both the chicken who’s on the journey, as well as the person who’s making that journey possible.
It’s such a waste of real food when people trash the bones of a chicken after eating the flesh. Yes – real food! After roasting a chicken, it gets carved into a delicious meal, while the bones and bits go right into the disposal. But by throwing away the carcass of the chicken, you’re wasting a good deal of so many important nutrients that you need for maintaining many of your bodily functions.
