beer jam


1.5 l of blonde beer.

400 g of sugar.

1 orange.

1 stick of cinnamon.

2 vanilla pods.


Star anise.

1 green apple.

We start with a recipe that is ideal for starters and appetizers. Beer jam is suitable for consumption by children, since the alcohol completely evaporates during its preparation and it pairs great with all kinds of cheeses.

In a pot, put the sugar, the cloves, the open vanilla pods, the cinnamon, the star anise, the skin and the juice of the orange (without the white), the beer and the skins, the hearts and the apples cut into squares. Cook over medium heat until the sugar dissolves and, when it boils, lower the heat to a simmer and leave it for another 20 minutes.

Remove the pot from the heat, let it cool and store it in the fridge to rest for about 12 hours. When they have passed, cook the mixture again over high heat until it boils and lower the heat to a minimum to cook for 1 more hour. After this time, the fruit and spices are removed, the remains of the apple are crushed in the blender and added to the liquid, mix well and with the heat at a minimum, let it cook for one more hour, until the liquid reduces.

Ready! You can now vacuum pack the jam and enjoy it.

Pizza dough with beer


300 g of flour.

150 g of beer.

10 g of yeast.

5 g of salt.

15 g of olive oil.

A pinch of sugar.

The beer adds a crunch and some flavor to the pizza dough. To make it, the first thing is to put the flour in a bowl and dissolve the yeast. Make a hole in the center and put the beer, salt, oil and sugar. For this recipe, you don’t need to use the best house beer , just a private label.

Mix the ingredients until you get a manageable dough that is not very sticky. Sprinkle flour on a surface and pour the dough to work it for a few minutes until it is elastic and fine. If it sticks, you can add a little flour.

When it’s ready, dust it with a little more flour or brush it with a little oil, place it in a large bowl, cover it with a dry cloth and let it sit for an hour or two. Once it has grown, you can use it to make a homemade pizza. Break the dough into pieces, and use a rolling pin to knead and shape. Cover the dough with the ingredients you want and bake. 

The baking time will depend on the thickness of the dough and its ingredients, but the ideal is that the oven is very hot first and that you have it between 15 and 30 minutes.

Grilled Chicken Beer


Whole and clean chicken.

Thyme, cayenne and garlic (or any spice that you especially like).


1 can of beer of 330 ml.

When roasting, the chicken meat tends to be very dry and with little flavor. Luckily, our friend the beer is here to solve this problem.

Preparing this chicken is very simple. The first thing we will do is marinate the chicken in a baking tray. Use two thirds of the can and mix with the thyme, cayenne and garlic, which can be natural or powdered. Spread the chicken with the mixture, add salt and let it rest for an hour.

To put the chicken in the oven you have to “sit” it on the can. The chicken will be vertical, on the can. When the beer is heated, this will cause it to evaporate and permeate the chicken meat, but without taking on the taste of alcohol. With the oven preheated, we will let it roast for 45 minutes at about 200 degrees. Check from time to time and if you see that the skin is very dry, it is that it is ready.

Pork secret with beer and honey sauce


600 g Pork secret.

Olive oil.

Salt Maldon.

200 g of beer.

100 g of honey.

To do so, put the beer in a pot to heat, when it starts to boil, lower the heat and add the honey, mustard, lemon juice, tahini and freshly ground pepper with a grinder, along with half a tablespoon of salt.. Stir all the ingredients to mix well and cook over low heat for 50 minutes, until reduced. Remove from the heat and let it rest.
