Chilli Jam: Although I call this chilli jam, I don't mean by this that it's the sort of thing you'd spread on your toast at breakfast (though smeared inside a bacon sandwich, it could be a real help one hungover morning) but rather a chilli jelly - chelly? - that glows a fiery, flecked red and is fabulous with cold meats or a cheese plate. And just a small pot of it makes a gorgeous present.
Chive flower butter can be used to add colour and flavour to savoury snacks and dishes. Pull apart the flowers and mix the florets with room temp butter. Make into a sausage shape to slice when chilled or put in a ramekin. Leaver several hours for the flavours to develop. Add to baked potatoes, steamed vegetables or grilled fish or meat, or under the skin before roasting chicken; great in sandwiches... | The Edible Flower Shop
