Exotic Eats Give Away – Argentina. Win a Bottle of Dulce de Leche or Malbec Jam!!

by Sala @ Veggie Belly on January 10, 2009

(This give away is now closed. Go to this post to see who the lucky winner is! )

I picked up some wonderful things (all edible of course!) on my recent trip to Buenos Aires and Mendoza, Argentina. The Historias y Sabores (history and flavor) chocolate factory in Mendoza, particularly had very delicious chocolates, liquors and jams. Surrounded by the smells of caramel, limoncello and wine, I thought of my readers and how much you’d enjoy the stuff the chocolate factory sold.

So I bought 2 exotic products from the chocolate factory, just for you. And I’m giving them away in this post! Before I tell you how you can easily enter to win the free random drawing, let me tell you what I bought for you..

One 100g bottle of Malbec Jam

Argentina is famous for its Malbec wine, and wine in general. There is wine in everything – wine sauce, wine jams and they even have wine shampoo! Malbec jam is a fitting representation of this part of the world.

This jam is made from local Malbec wine. It tastes almost like honey with a mild grape and red wine flavor. It’s not as thick as you’d expect a jam to be, but it’s great to drizzle over muffins, granola etc. I think the simplest way to enjoy this Argentine Malbec jam is over toast.

Here are some ways to enjoy the Malbec jam..

Use it in any recipes that calls for honey
Use as a glaze on tofu
Roast some sweet potatoes and toss in Malbec jam
Drizzle over toast, muffins or granola
Add the jam to pear poaching liquid
Make a cocktail with Malbec jam, vodka, grenadine and prosecco

One 100g bottle of Dulce de Leche with Hazelnuts

Dulce de Leche or ‘milk sweet’ is ubiquitous in Argentina. It is made from boiling and reducing sweetened milk. It tastes like caramel..only a lot better! The bottle I have for you is also from the Historias y Sabores chocolate factory in Mendoza. It has hazelnuts it in that lend the dulce de leche a luxurious butteryness.

Ive already made whole wheat cinnamon waffles and served them with dulce de leche – a huge success!

Here are some ways to enjoy the Dulce de Leche with Hazelnuts

Use it in any recipe that calls for caramel
Make caramel apples with it
Drizzle over popcorn
Make dulce de leche icecream by blending vanilla icecream with dulce de leche
Mix into coffee or hot chocolate
Stir into brownie batter while making brownies
