I’m always on the hunt for a new jam since I opened my cottage food business… or since I started my garden. No, maybe since I decided my life’s goal was to become a mad scientist in the kitchen… that sounds more like it. It’s amazing how I just drool over everything I put into the baskets for ya’ll and just hear those gears churning and whirring and ideas fall into place. This recipe though… This came from a whole new avenue, even for someone as random as I am.
On the last day of my birthday weekend, my soon to be possibly a maybe former or closet smoker guy and I wandered into a “vapor” store hoping to find another alternative to that nasty cigarette monster. When we walked in it was like heaven on a scratch and sniff… While he perused the “menu” for flavors to try I concocted jams out of the devilish concoctions they had modeled after famous cocktails. In a second Black Mamba Jam was born!
As luck would have it we get cranberries in the hostess pack! Excellent, because I’m not a cranberry type of girl. I froze amazing Bountiful Basket blackberries this summer… and what are these???? SATSUMA tangerines. We’re set!
Enjoy this toast worthy adaptation of a famous cocktail, but BE CAUTIONED!!!!!!! I took a sample of this to work and within minutes (or however long it takes for a toaster oven to toast) half of an 8 ounce jar was gone and those greedy attorneys were asking for more.
