Need Some Ideas Using Unusual Ingredients
I did some graphic work for an old client and didn't charge him. So he sent me a huge box of food as payment (he lives in a place with lots of ethnic markets and knows we can't get a lot of that kind of stuff locally). I wanted to make some jams or something as a "Thank You".
So I have:
Dried Elderflowers (I think I'll use those in the elderberry wine)
Dried Lavender (Blueberry Lavender Jam maybe?)
Dried Chamomile (something with apples?)
Panela (it's unrefined brown sugar that comes in a cone and is wrapped in corn husks - any reason why I couldn't use that instead of regular brown sugar in apple butter or a chutney?)
A bunch of different kinds of dried chili peppers (any way to turn those into a pepper jelly?)
Any ideas? And, no, I don't drink herbal tea.
