I have been super excited to post this recipe. The first time I had Modern Gingham Preserves was like the best day of my life. It’s like the heavens opened up, the birds started singing and there was not a cloud to be found. This jam you guys is one that you have to try. Kathy keeps it simple, uses locally sourced ingredients and let’s the fruit do the talking: basically everything you could want in a homemade jam.

This recipe is all about the jam. It adds so much flavor to this chicken, that you’ll wonder why you didn’t slow cook with jam before!

      Haha. Thanks girl! Just A LOT of wear and tear…I have a couple of atrocious looking ones, trust me! Sometimes it’s good to leave that parchment paper and foil off. ;) Just spray the heck out of it with nonstick spray. That will get you some grime. Haha.
