The jams that Emily G makes are more than just a sweet, fruity spread to enjoy on a fresh slice of rustic bread or a flaky croissant—although those would be perfectly sufficient reasons to pick up one of the brand’s deliciously creative flavors, their surprising depth and complexity lend the jams just as well to inclusion in rich savory dishes. As a glaze, the Cabernet Sauvignon brings a sweet note to the golden crispy crust of a roast lamb shoulder, sealing in the dark meat’s juices. Added to caramelized onions, sauteed apples, and spices, the fig-pomegranate flavor makes the base of a chutney perfect for serving with succulent roast pork tenderloin.
