Reader Question:

I just received a jar of Smoked Onion Jam from your store. It is made by Blackberry Farms. How do I use it?- Rita

Marilyn’s Answer:

    Blackberry Farms’ onion jam is deliciously savory and works wonderfully with a TON of different food. I’m sure it would be amazing to try just a dollop on grilled chicken or pork tenderloin. I would also enjoy it on a roasted lamb chop. I could see the jam adding a unique element to a sandwich or Panini. I think it would also add an interesting flavor to pizza, a tart with cheese or a polenta square. And of course on a southern biscuit!
