Vegan MoFo: Fig and Ginger Jam and Cream Cheeze
I told ya all about my Fig and Ginger Jam yesterday, right? Well, while I was busy at work making the jam, Julian was working on the cream cheese recipe by Miyoko Schinner in the recent Cheese Issue of VegNews. Each of these things are wonderful standalone toppings, but when spread together on a baguette, they become pure magic!
Don't believe me? Try it for yourself. Sooooooo goooooooood.
The jam, as you can imagine, has a nice ginger flavor that isn't too over-powering. You get extra jolts of gingery goodness when you get a chunk of the crystallized ginger, as you can see here. I realized after taking this photo that strangely, there weren't any fig chunks in this plop of jam. The creamy, slight smokiness of the cream cheese adds a richness to this snack. Seriously, this is good stuff.
