Sometimes it’s the little things that send our customers over the moon and back for more. One of our customer favorites is also a holiday favorite of ours, Jacquie’s own fig jam.
Fig jam is actually pretty easy to prepare and makes an out-of-the-ordinary holiday housewarming gift, especially when paired with another of our favorites, spiced nuts.
Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering Holiday Fig Jam
You’ll need 5 pounds of high quality figs, which you can usually purchase at a market specializing in high quality produce.
Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering Spiced Nuts
Another holiday favorite, Spiced Nuts are another easy to prepare holiday gift that everyone likes to receive.
You will need:
Melt butter in a 2-quart microwave safe pan and stir in the nuts.
Add Worcestershire, soy sauce, salt, cinnamon, allspice, cloves and garlic powder; mix well.
Microwave on high for 6 to 8 minutes, stirring every 3 minutes.
Let mixture cool to room temperature and store in tightly sealed gift containers.
Jacquie enjoys giving gifts of fig jam together with high end crackers or homemade bread.
Another hint from Jacquie: Homemade spiced nuts look divine when presented in a decorative box, inset with a paper doily and presented with a lovely red wine or spiced white wine such as Gewurztraminer.
