Recipe by threeovens

A condiment that goes well with bread and cheese. It also complements roasted meats, such as pork, ham, and turkey.


I made this almost exact same recipe from a foodie friend, except his had no bay leaf. His recipe also had 1 tbls of dark rum. It is to die for! Whenever I serve this the bowl is literally licked clean! I serve this with crackers! i added my photo.
