From the cooking/baking front

I've been jamming like crazy. Very hard to keep up with the demands of the restaurant. I just made a batch of kiwi apple chia jam to try. Someone [who never check what we have at the restaurant and it's not me] bought an extra container of kiwi from costco and brought it home for us to eat. There would be no way to eat them all, on top of the pineapple, berries and grapes we had in the house. I adapted the recipe and added the chia seeds. The kiwi seeds are the black stuff in the jam and the chia seeds are the beige stuff. It has a nice taste, not too sweet. I used the food mill because I didn't read the recipe well, and didn't grate the but chopped the apples instead. I used the largest screen for the mill so it's still quite chunky.

I've also been trying to test our recipes that I've been clipping [I love evernote clipper]. Been reading about harissa a lot in the blogs that I follow. It's a North Africa hot red pepper paste. Got the harissa recipe from The Wednesday Chef and finally made up some harissa this weekend. I'm thinking of rice and beans with fried egg to go with the harissa. I'll let you know what I think and post a pic of what I made.
