Chilli Jam: Although I call this chilli jam, I don't mean by this that it's the sort of thing you'd spread on your toast at breakfast (though smeared inside a bacon sandwich, it could be a real help one hungover morning) but rather a chilli jelly - chelly? - that glows a fiery, flecked red and is fabulous with cold meats or a cheese plate. And just a small pot of it makes a gorgeous present.
Soak thick, juicy beef filets in a heady marinade of Burgundy wine, soy sauce, oyster sauce, minced garlic and dried oregano. Grill the filets and serve with a dollop of butter creamed with shallots, green onions, white pepper and a dash of wine.
Jamie Oliver's tomato soup:: I roasted 6 large toms (which were going squidgy!) and 2 cored and de-seeded green peppers (which were going red) in the oven on 375F for 50 mins. I then followed the recipe and added the tomatoes and peppers when it was time to blend it. We served ours with a blob of fat free natural Greek yog and it was delicious.
