This is exactly why we enjoy our local products, so versatile! Who knew you could do such a thing. It sure helps when there's a chef behind the recipes.
In this article, we have featured a few recipes using Black Bord jellies. Even though these were originally created to pump up your charcuterie and cheese boards, you'll see there's more that meets the eye.
What is Black Bord?
Bord meaning “plate” in Dutch is a symbol of sharing, taking the time to sit and eat with those you care about and that's exactly what we wanted to represent our company. Black Bord specializes in gourmet jams and jellies that can enhance your charcuterie boards, sauces, recipes or however else you please to incorporate it into your cooking and everyday life.
List of recipes:

Strawberry Cardamom “Martini”
2 oz gin
1/2 oz Black Bord strawberry cardamom jam
1 oz fresh lemon juice
Sprig of thyme for garnish
Shaken on ice.

1 oz tequila
1 oz grand marnier

Blueberry Mojito “Moscow Mule”
1 oz Vodka
1/2 oz Black Bord blueberry mojito jam
Fill your copper mug with ice
Top with ginger beer (we used @fevertreecanada)
Garnish with a lime wedge
Roasted Garlic & Onion “Caesar”
1 oz vodka
1/2 oz Black Bord roasted garlic and onion jam
1-3 dashes of hot sauce (ex: sriracha)
3 dashes of Worcestershire sauce
Juice from 1/2 a lime
Celery salt for rim
Top with Clamato juice
* We recommend mixing your vodka and jam first really well and to strain it through a sieve so that you don’t end up with pieces of onion in your cocktail!
Spiced Pickled Apples on Vanilla Ice Cream
For the pickled apples:
2 apples, sliced thinly
3 cinnamon sticks
1 star anise
6 allspice berries
1 cup of apple cider vinegar
1 cup of water
1/2 cup of sugar
1/2 tablespoon salt
Add all ingredients except the apples to a sauce pot and cook over medium heat until it comes to a simmer and all sugar is completely combined.
Pour your brine over your apples and you're finished! Allow to cool in the fridge for a minimum of a few hours so they have time to really absorb the flavours
Simply serve over vanilla ice cream topped with our Pineapple Vanilla Ginger jam.
Roasted Garlic & Onion Savoury “Muffins”
2 cups flour
1/4 cup melted butter
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup chopped spinach
1/4 cup shredded fresh Parmesan
Salt & pepper to taste
Black Bord Roasted Garlic & Onion jam
Preheat oven to 400
Combine all of your wet ingredients in one bowl & dry in the other. Combine both together and mix well (your mixture will be sticky!)
Fill each muffin tin about halfway (or if you want bigger muffins you can fill 6 to the top, you just may need to adjust your baking time a little)
Top each muffin with about 1tsp of Roasted Garlic & Onion jam.
Bake for 5 minutes, reduce heat to 350 and bake for another 15 minutes & enjoy!
Stuffed Portobellos Mushroom
Pork belly (pre-cooked)
Fresh garden oregano
Black Bord Roasted Garlic & Onion Jam
Your favorite Cheese on top
Put in the order that you would like the Pork Belly, Oregano, Roasted Garlic & Onion Jam inside the portobello mushrooms
Top them with cheese.
Put them on a pan of your choice & broil them until the cheese is melted.
Roasted Garlic & Onion Baked Brie
A wheel of brie (depending on the size you may want to increase the ingredients a little bit. I used a small wheel)
Salt & pepper to taste
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar (if you can find truffle balsamic vinegar I’d definitely suggest that to give in a little “je ne sais quoi”)
2 cremini mushrooms, sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil (or oil of choice) to cook mushrooms in
A pinch or two of dried or fresh thyme
Baguette or crackers to serve on.
Preheat oven to 350
Add your oil, and cook mushrooms over medium heat. Then you’ll add your salt, pepper, thyme and balsamic vinegar and sauté until the liquid has evaporated and the mushrooms are cooked (10 minutes or so).
Carefully cut the very top rind off your brie, top with a generous amount of Roasted Garlic & Onion jam, and top with your mushroom mixture.
Bake for about 15 minutes or until your cheese is soft.
Serve with baguette or crackers and enjoy!
