What Are Some Creative Ways to Eat Sweet Chili Jam?

Good Questions

Q: A friend gave me some delicious, local, very spicy and very sweet chili jam.

Other than the occasional spread on toast for an interesting snack, though, i'm not quite sure what to do with it. It is delicious, but i need some ideas for putting it to good use!

Editor: Veronica, one of our favorite ways to use sweet chili jam is as an appetizer. Spread toasts or crackers with cream cheese, then top with chili jam. Spicy and sweet, but refreshing, too!

Readers, any good ideas for Veronica? Here's a recipe if you want to try making this jam at home, too...
