Cooking with Fruit Preserves and Jellies
Make-ahead tip: The recipe calls for letting dough rise one hour. You can also let it stand at room temperature overnight with the same great results. Slice bananas just before adding to pizza to avoid discoloration.
One online reviewer says: “This is a wonderful recipe!! The bread is perfectly soft and sweet, and the filling is a fantastic compliment (not to mention the beautiful presentation). I use seedless raspberry preserves at times and make for all special occasions. A must try!”
The glaze also works on chicken thighs beautifully. Serve with grilled fennel bulb quarters and couscous for a stunning meal.
One online review shares her real-world advice: “This was incredible! The flavors were so intense together. We substituted 2 teaspoons Sriracha for the jalapeño pepper. We also substituted tilapia for pompano and basted both sides of the fish with sauce before broiling. Then we basted the fish again when we turned while broiling. We will definitely make this again.”
You can use the same spicy-sweet glaze for pork chops. Accompany with sautéed broccolini and couscous.
The homemade vanilla bean custard can be prepared a couple of days ahead; then assemble and chill the finished parfaits before serving. Using store-bought meringue cookies saves you some time.
