Using Jams and Jellies

So you now have lots of jams and jellies. It does not matter if you made the jams yourself or bought it at the store. You can use jam many ways other than just for sandwiches.

Here are some things I have done with my surplus of Jams and Jellies.

Add a few tablespoons to pancake batter, a little goes a long way and you do not have whole big berries or fruit. It is a nice treat away from plain pancakes, hotcakes, griddle cakes.

Add a few tablespoons or a bit more to plain muffin mix. instead of using frozen, dried or fresh berries.

Many people use jams for filling when making cookies, bars, and such.

You can use it as a glaze on meats. All depends on what kind of jam you have and what meat you are using.

You can add a bit to plain yogurts, to add flavor to it!

Add some to a bowl of oatmeal. It will give it a bit of flavor and easier to eat for some people!

Warm up some jam and add over Ice cream! Oh so good!

Use jam in between cake layers, you know you want the raspberry filling in your cakes!

Warm up the jam or jelly and thin it down a bit and make flavored syrup for pancakes, waffles, and french toast.

Of course there is toast, bread, sandwiches, on biscuits, on pancakes. Where ever you add fruit you can add jams and jellies as a substitution in many recipes!
