Portland in a jar! Maker Liz Cowan affectionately dubbed this dark, sticky jam Puddletown Pub Chutney after her rainy home city in Oregon, and were loving it on everything from charcuterie boards to gooey grilled cheese.
The flavors packed inside epitomize Portlandias food obsessions: sliced apples (a Pacific Northwest staple!) simmered with onions in a rich mix of craft stout beer, cider vinegar, coffee, blackstrap molasses, currants and spices.
Rain or shine, its a pretty comforting condiment, packing sweet caramelized flavor with mustard seed tang and a slight, mellow bitterness from coffee.
