So you might be asking yourself: What is BBQ Jam?
Thanks for asking.
Jordan’s BBQ Jam is a tomato-based spicy, sweet, savory jam-like spread.
The ingredients are: local BC tomatoes, onion, garlic, brown sugar, organic sugar, organic molasses and Jordan’s 13-chili spice mix.
Then you might be asking yourself: what can I use it for?
- BBQ of course—apply last 10 minutes of barbecuing (meat &/or veggies)
- serve with cheese & crackers for a charcuterie plate
- make huevos rancheros (eggs Mexican-style)
- spread between layers of cheese in a grilled cheese sandwich
Something we tried over the weekend is pizza!
Things you’ll need:
bowl, spoon, spatula, cutting board, rolling pin, grater, knife, pizza stone, spoons and 1 jar of Jordan’s BBQ Jam
BBQ Jam Pizza with Chicken and Red Onions
Preheat oven at 450F
Prize Pizza Dough (adapted from the Five Roses cookbook)—makes enough for two pizzas
1 pkg active dry yeast (or 2 1/4 tsp yeast)
1/4 cup lukewarm water
1tbsp shortening (or butter)
1 cup boiling water
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 1/4 whole wheat flour
3tsp olive or vegetable oil
Soften Yeast in lukewarm water for 10 min. Place sugar, salt, shortening, and boiling water in a large bowl; stir until sugar dissolves. Cool lukewarm water; add yeast. Add 1 1/2 cups of flour and beat until smooth. Add remaining flour or enough to make a dough just barely firm enough to handle; knead until smooth on a lightly floured board. Divide ball into 2; knead each piece into a smooth ball. Flatten, then roll over pizza stone to the edges and a little beyond and make a quarter inch scallop the edge of the pizza all the way around. Let rise the dough rise for 15 minutes before adding toppings. If you prefer a thinner crust, add toppings immediately.
