We're still running high on our first small-batch canning
experience the other week! It's like a whole new branch of the cooking family tree has been opened to us - one that includes jellies, jams, and marmalades
! But other than spreading it on our toast, what are other things we can do with our preserves once we have them?There are actually quite a lot of things that you can do with preserves! Our favorite still might be the toast option, closely followed by piling it on a bowl of oatmeal. But when that gets old, here are some other ideas:
• Italian Jam Crostata
• Jam and Ricotta Muffins
• Kentucky Jam Cake
• Shortbread Jam Tart
• Thumbprint Cookies
• Victoria Sponge Cake
• Bar Cookies with Jam
There's also setting out a little pot of jam alongside cheese, bread, and cured meats as part of an appetizer platter. Something for everyone!
What other ways do you use your preserves?
