Who says rosemary is just a condiment for savory meals? A particular specialty cheese shop in Calgary infuses the freshness of the rosemary with apple jelly.

You can spread it on top of the dairy product before eating or you can even grill the cheese with the preserve.

The olive chicken is served traditionally with a pickled radish. It even has a spicy version which is a combination of sweet and hot with a scrumptious sticky sauce, so good you would scrape everything and leave only the bones.
