If we could bottle the heart-stopping action and engine revving atmosphere of Monster Jam, we would – but since this annual high-powered clash between world champion drivers in 5 tonne trucks has to be seen to be believed, we’re taking inspo from the Brisbane leg of the Monster Jam Tour on Saturday 1 October
to do a little jammin’ ourselves – the edible kind!
If you’re keen to cheer on super-charged trucks like Alien Invasion, Grave Digger, and Team Hot Wheels, we’ve got 4 VIP tickets with Pit Passes to give away to the show (valued at $460), and all you need to do to enter is to rev your culinary engines with a jammin’ combination inspired by the show!
Tell us your most creative jam conconction below (note – we don’t need a full recipe, just the combination), and the most creative entrant will win! To get your creative jams flowing, we’ve shortlisted a few suggestions you may just want to bottle up yourself.
Grand Slam Nana’s Jam
Age before beauty! Those ageing speckled Granny Smith apples sitting on your kitchen counter are pumped for a monsterrific peel-out and some fat, non-stop action. Add vanilla, cinnamon and grated Buderim ginger for extra power.
Pining for Bundy
Not for the wallflower, this supercharged gelatinous tonic salutes the sugarcane gods of Bundaberg with more than a wee dram. Spin those wheels and charge up like you mean it with the monster of all rums. More stagger, less swagger. A great foundation for sweet and sour sauce or a glaze for roasted meats, with sugarcane stock, a swig of Bundy Rum, lemon juice and two pineapples.
While there is contention in its invention, at least pavlova comes well-preserved, sweetie. We’ve taken a typically sub-tropical Queensland cue from the iconic desert and jammed this show pony with all its decorative delights, including 1.5kg strawberries, 1.5kg raspberries and 250g passionfruit. The sugar? For maximum daring, lay it on heavy (3kg).
Mind your XXXX’s
More maroon than modest, this don’t-you-know-who-I am-jam salutes its true state of origin when it comes to the liquid amber. Fire up the barbeque plate and prepare for spectacular carnivorous stunts or supercharge your cheese board and accompany some Kenilworth cheddar with the concoction of beer, gelatin, sugar and lemon juice.
