Make your own fruit-flavored yogurt
Spoon some into a bowl. Top with plain yogurt. Call it fruit-on-the-bottom.
Bake some brie
Top that wheel of cheese with a few spoonfuls, wrap the whole thing in phyllo or puff pastry, and bake at 400 degrees.
Add some to a pan sauce for meat
It not only helps thicken it, it adds sweetness and flavor.
Shake it into a cocktail
Literally any cocktail. Think peach with whiskey, raspberry with vodka, and orange with gin.
Top creamy desserts
Pudding, panna cotta, you name it: it’s better with a bit of jam or jelly.
Make stuffed French Toast
First, make a jam sandwich with white sandwich bread, challah, or brioche. Next, soak the sandwich in eggs and milk. Finally, pan-fry in lots and lots of butter.
Whip up the ultimate grilled cheese
Jam + melted cheese + golden, toasted bread. (It’s the jam that makes it ultimate.)
Who needs fresh strawberries when you can fill shortcakes with jam (and whipped cream, of course) instead?
Top your pancakes
Turn jam into syrup instantly by boiling it with water. (Sayonara, maple syrup!)
Transform ice cream
Take softened vanilla ice cream. Fold some, say, JELLY into. SHAZAM! You just made jelly ice cream.
Use it to make popsicles
Thin with water and you’ve got a popsicle base that beats the hell out of juice.
Serve it alongside cheese
Oh you thought your cheese plates were already fancy? You haven’t even seen fancy until you’ve put a cute jar of jam or jelly on the plate. (Oh, and it also happens that jelly and cheese go fabulously together, which helps.)
Fill pretty much anything sweet
Turn cookies into sandwich cookies, make hand pies, whip up a galette, make an impressive tart. And definitely make bar cookies.
Add it to a salad dressing
The touch of sweetness will help balance your vinaigrette and make it sing.
Stuff a pork loin (or a chicken breast)
Use a long knife to cut out a 1-inch tunnel all the way through the loin (or breast). Fill with jam and bake like normal.
Make crepes. Spread a thin layer of jelly on each. Roll and eat. (Mazel tov, you’re French!)
Melt it into a glaze for sweets…
Heat on the stove with a bit of water or lemon juice until it’s melted and liquidy, then pour it over a simple cake or cheesecake.
…or use that glaze for all things savory
Glaze brisket as it cooks! Brush over chicken drumsticks to make them sticky and finger-licking!
Make something British
The classic British dessert called fool is essentially just whipped cream with fruit folded in—but, of course, you can fold in jam instead. Add meringue to the equation and you can call it Eton mess.
Stir it into barbecue sauce
Use it to doctor up the store-bought stuff or mix it into your DIY version.
Do the swirl
Dollop onto cornbread, crumb cake, or brownie batter, swirl, and bake.
Or bake it into cake
Mix it thoroughly into the batter of gingerbread or layer cake.
Put it on your cereal
Forget brown sugar—sweeten up your bowl of oatmeal or porridge with a dollop of jam instead.
Stop reading this—seriously, stop right now—and start baking.
Make flavored chocolate
Stir a spoonful of jam into warm ganache and pour it over cakes. Or refrigerate until firm and use it as a filling for French macarons.
Make better biscuits
Instead of slathering your biscuits with jam, bake jam right into the biscuit.
