What Are Some Everyday Ways to Cook With Jam?

Good Questions

Q: So, I've gone a little bit overboard in making jam. There is no way I'm going to eat THIS much toast. What else can I do WITH all this jam?

I don't have many opportunities for baking for more than just me, either, so big jam tarts/jam cakes/jam cookies are nice but I need more everyday ideas as well.

Editor: Kim, first of all, have you thought about giving some away to coworkers or friends? Homemade jam is always a treat! Also, if you have canned the jam, then it should last for at least a year, giving you plenty of time to use it. And if you just made refrigerator jam, it can be frozen and saved for the future that way.

Having said all that, you can warm small amounts of jam and whisk it into salad dressings, or into glazes for meat. Also check out this post:
