Apricot jam is one of those things that we literally take for granted. Usually when we think of jam, we envision heavily buttered toast spread generously with the jam itself. A crowd favorite, apricot jam is no exception. But little did we know that it is actually more versatile than we originally believed. Using only the finest apricots, they are boiled and reduced with sugar and water for many hours. The flavor is unlike any other jam.
The softness of apricots means it pairs well with a variety of savory dishes. Make it part of your cheeseboard and pair with the likes of gouda, brie, and goats cheese. The sweetness of the jam will cut through the richness of the cheeses excellently and provide a wonderful, contrasting board. Try including it in a moroccan chicken dish. Mixing apricots and chicken (apricot chicken) is no new thing, but it is something that we should all taste and experience at least once in our lives.
