Q: Somehow in the crazy holiday gift givings, I ended up with SEVEN different jars of homemade jams and marmalades. The flavors are interesting and all over the place (jalapeno peach, boysenberry, cranberry marmalade), and I like jam and toast as much as the next guy, but do you have any suggestions for some recipes that use jams/jellies to help me make a dent in this massive stockpile?
