I like sweet jam spread on a warm slice of toast in the morning! What I love even more is to think outside the box (or in this case rectangle). Here are 5 unique ways you can use your favorite Amadio Ranch Fruit Preserves and Jams:1. Ice Cream Topping
Warm a little jam in the microwave for a quick and easy topping for ice cream sundaes!
2. Cake Filling
This is probably one of my favorite uses for jam. An easy way to make your boxed cake mix taste like an expensive bakery cake is to use jam as a filling between the layers! I have used Strawberry with Chocolate Cake and Cherry with a Yellow Cake and Blue frosting for the 4th of July! I think Jalapeno Jam and Chocolate Cake would make an interesting dessert!
3. Simple Appetizers
Jam pairs well with cheese for a savory snack. Try FROG jam on your charcuterie board, cherry preserves in your baked brie, or hot peach pepper preserves with prosciutto, and mozzarella on your bruschetta.
In most recipes, jam can be easily swapped out for simple syrup or muddled fresh/frozen fruit to make a completely customizable drink with the ingredients you have on hand! Check out my post about Jam Cocktails for recipe ideas!
5. Cookies and baked goods
Swirl your favorite jam flavor into your batter or add a dollop to your cookies, tarts, and lemon squares.
