On Preserve {simple additions}

One of my favorite items to keep in our fridge are preserves. Not only do they taste great on toast and biscuits, but they make EXCELLENT glazes and marinades for chicken and seafood such as shrimp and salmon. One of my favorite flavors is that of apricot. You can add so much sweetness, gloss, and color by heating up the preserves and using a pastry brush to glaze your chicken as it cooks or by heating it up and marinating your chicken or fish for a few hours or better yet overnight. I also keep pear and strawberry preserves on hand for the same reasons, they are all delightful!

  1. Yes!! you are singing to the choir. One of my sons favorite chicken dishes is when I simmer orange marmalade, scoth bonnet peppers, and garlic and make a hot and spicy sauce to bake chicken legs in. Preserves are divine!
