Well I finally had a day off, it’s been a while after the long summer rush of remodeling. I wanted to make something yummy and satisfying with a pow of flavor to celebrate As usual after a long week the refer is pretty bare. So I started digging around to find some ingredients. Well I remembered I have a cache of Ancho Chilies that will get us through the next nuclear war, so I thought this might be a good time to chisel away at our stockpile. Really wanted to make something simple, not really knowing, I started out seeding and roasting the chilies in a pan on the stove. MMMM the aroma of the sweet chilies filled the room. After 15-20 minutes, decided to get them to the food processor and pulverization them. I wanted to make some sort of sauce but I wanted to keep it thick. Next I just kept adding a tablespoon of hot water at a time until I had what looked like an emulsion. Then a couple teaspoons of a high quality organic ketchup to smooth it out. And here it was “jam” obviously the best thing for jam are freshly made biscuits oh ya. I forged ahead the making biscuits for the recent success, being a savory mixture, eggs and sausage are the prefect accompaniment. Well here it is, the Breakfast Sandwich with Ancho Chile Jam, but really I am sure this jam would be good on many things like tacos, steak, or even as BBQ sauce.
