What’s For Dinner?
Red Chile Jelly - from Nava
(First star is lowest, fourth star is highest)
From the Menu of ... Nava,
3060 Peachtree Road N.W., Atlanta
This condiment is served with Nava's Sonoma Jack Cheese Fritters appetizer (see link below for recipe).
It will keep indefinitely in an airtight jar in the refrigerator, says Nava executive chef Jesse T. Perez. Brush it on cooked salmon, scallops or shrimp, or spread it on a grilled ham and cheese sandwich.
