Osmanthus Oolong Jam

Spread your bread with a different kind of marmalade – this one’s with mildly floral osmanthus flowers seeped in earthy oolong tea. They’re all on the mellow side, with the typical jam-like sweetness taken from from melting sugar and infused with a squeeze of lemon. You may like it on warm buttery scones with a pot of fragrant jasmine tea, or as a jam on mixed-grain bread for a nutty, grainy textural play.
