Some friends bought me a brilliant cheese board/serving platter that’s made out of slate and comes with little chilli shaped handles but they also gave me a jar of Lewis and Cooper’s Chilli Jam. It has to be one of the best presents ever.
The cheese board is made by the slate works and is a really good size for both using as a cheese board and as a severing platter for things like Arancini, it’s really east to clean and looks he the business, I’ve found my self doing cheese boards a lot more since I got it just because I want to use the board.
The chilli jam is top notch too, its really sticky so if you’ve kept it in the fridge you might want to remove it for a few minutes before trying to spread it on your crackers. It’s sweet but not too sweet, there’s plenty of chilli pepper flavour but then a lovely little tingle with just a bit of throat burn.
Like most things I’ve tested the jam on loads of different things, from cheese and crackers, ham sandwiches and toasties to dropping a dollop in soup and chilli con carne. I even mixed some with some creme fraiche to make a dip for nachos. Next time I make my Roasted red pepper and chorizo soup I might even drop some in that.
