"I have a greater appreciation for kitchen appliances, having played one." -Anthony Daniels

The refrigerator light goes on...

This is a great topping with a wide variety of uses. Served warm it is perfect on top of almost anything you care to grill: fish, chicken, pork tenderloin, or tofu. You can use it right after cooking or reheat it gently for serving.

It also is fantastic chilled, on everything from sandwiches to salads or even as part of tuna or egg salad.

I like to add a lot of ground black pepper to my jam early in the cooking process. The roasted flavor of the pepper blends beautifully with the savory and sweet onions.
