This is exactly why we enjoy our local products, so versatile! Who knew you could do such a thing. It sure helps when there’s a chef behind the recipes.
In this article, we have featured a few drink recipes using Black Bord jellies. Even though these were originally created to pump up your charcuterie and cheese boards, you’ll see there’s more that meets the eye.
What is Black Bord?
Bord meaning “plate” in Dutch is a symbol of sharing, taking the time to sit and eat with those you care about and that’s exactly what we wanted to represent our company. Black Bord specializes in gourmet jams and jellies that can enhance your charcuterie boards, sauces, recipes or however else you please to incorporate it into your cooking and everyday life.
