What Would You Do With Jam?

9 posts in this topic

So my partner and I really love making jam and canning things, and because of all of the wineberries in our yard and fields, we've found ourselves with 10 jars of jam (and it's not even peach or blackberry season yet!). He has it on toast or bagels every morning, and I really want to have some but I've only had a little so far because I don't have bread or crackers to put it on. I do occasionally have bread but I don't like to eat it very often, and I refuse to shell out 6 dollars for a small box of mediocre crackers.

I've stirred some into vanilla yogurt, and that's as creative as I've been able to get. Not a huge fan of rice cakes. So I'm looking for suggestions. If you had as many jars of jam as we do (maybe you do, too!), and no bread, crackers or other gluteny friends, how would you eat it?

Oh yum! What flavors do you have? I like to put jam on gluten-free pancakes, but there are lots of different meals you could incorporate it into depending on the flavors.

Raspberry or strawberry jam can be used to make a simple vinaigrette salad dressing. http://allrecipes.com/recipe/red-raspberry-vinaigrette/detail.aspx

Grape jam/jelly makes a great "sauce" for meatballs or little smokies in the slow cooker. http://www.food.com/recipe/grape-jelly-meatballs-72826

You can use some flavors to glaze a ham. http://allrecipes.com/recipe/apricot-brown-sugar-ham/detail.aspx

Or to make dipping sauces for rice paper spring rolls. http://allrecipes.com/recipe/plum-sauce/detail.aspx

If you are feeling really adventurous you can make your own gluten-free pop tarts: http://www.adventuresofaglutenfreemom.com/2010/10/gluten-free-dairy-free-egg-free-pop-tarts/

If you can have dairy you make a cheesecake (or a bunch of mini cheesecakes) and top with jam.

Cleared out the fridge last week and found we have 34 kinds of homemade jam! I'm a bit of a food hoarder and get carried away with making preserves. Anyway, I use mine in many savoury ways including glazed duck breast, pork loin, rack of lamb, etc. I often swirl some jam or jelly into a pan sauce. You could make a fool, too! We had strawberry fool this weekend and it is glorious if you can have dairy. Or how about a dollop between shortbread layers or as pastry filling? Jams/jellies (i.e. fig) are lovely served with good firm cheeses such as Pecorino and charcuterie such as prosciutto. Have you made gluten-free crostada? Scones? Cornbread? Or maybe a pavlova with a thin layer of jam? I LOVE liver pate with jam/jelly. I like to swirl some into honey. You can even add some to a fruit smoothie. As I make my own ketchups (including fruit ones) and BBQ sauces I use jam in those, too, for a slightly fruity flavour (especially great with pork and poultry).

    • Endoscopy in 9 days after being low-gluten for a year. What to eat?
      I agree Katie, the gluten challenge isn't worthwhile for some people.  Regardless of your test results, I think you know the answer is not to eat gluten anymore.  I hope you recover quickly from the damage.

      I am glad you are feeling so much better!  Your posting will encourage others.  Thank you!
    • Last posted 2013 - Improving health
      When I first started this journey, roughly 11 yrs ago with symptoms, I had no clue. Eventually, having no luck with doctors (hypochondriac or psychosomatic), I googled my symptoms over and over looking for something... ANYTHING... that would give me a clue. Among other issues, my insides would not move, I was turning gray, felt like death, and had a persistent cough. I can't remember who but someone had posted on the forum and I found some of my symptoms. Eureka, I immediately began a gluten-free diet to see if it made any difference. Of course that was a journey, not realizing what products contained gluten. Long story shorter – first I went gluten-free, symptoms began to reappear, then it was soy (first organic was okay, then not), symptoms reappeared, took out corn, symptoms reappeared, then it was all grains. So the last couple of years I have been grain-free plus no sulphates. Actually, truth be told, my Celiac pharmacist gave me the recipe for health. I asked her if she liked a certain product. She answered, “I don't know, I have never tried it.” I asked her what she did use. She replied, “Nothing out of a box, a bag, or a bottle.” And that has pretty much been my life for the last couple of years. There is the odd product I try but it always has an after effect and I have to way the consequences against the enjoyment of it. I am one of those who react to 1 crumb in the butter, flour dust in the air, sulphates in anything, sometimes things that don't even seem like they would be a problem, like avocados and blueberries when I am contaminated. January 2016 I began this recitation. It is now May 5th, 2016 - Here I am 4 months later and I feel like screaming to anyone who will listen, “Things are improving!! My gut is healing!!” So what happened?? Someone suggested digestive enzymes. My insides were so compromised that I couldn't eat much besides fruit, veggies, and meat; all plain, all without being touched by people other than me. I could barely stand salt at times when I was compromised. Haven't been to a restaurant in years since I am not in a city that would have one to cater or understand this much of a problem. I started digestive enzymes but I read the label wrong and started with 5 first thing in the morning. Whatever... I began to notice improvements in what I could eat. Not anything different but just that I could eat without feeling ill or having my gut shut down. I stayed on those for a month and a half.. then I picked up a parasite from someone living in a very unclean apartment and visiting there and helping to clean. Well, that was a huge battle. I had to eat to discourage parasites. But in the process my insides began to heal dramatically. I was eating blackberries, drinking garlic keefir (which I couldn't have done 5 mths ago and gave me the first clue my insides had improved substantially), drinking oil of oregano or peppermint oil drops in a glasses of water, eating cabbage and green roughage. Drinking water with apple cider vinegar in it and Aloe Vera juice. After a couple of weeks my insides were a whole different story. I had a feeling of wellness that I hadn't had for years! I FELT like trying to eat something different. So I decided to try Gluten-free Rice Chex. Haven't had them in years.... and I am so happy! I can eat them!! (Not to say they are healthy, cause they are processed crap) but I didn't get sick and that was the amazing part. So now I am beginning to try a few things that would have set me back previously, I have made my own crème brulee because I have always been able to eat eggs. But the sugar was causing problems, but now it's okay. The issue I have now is that I want to try things too fast so I am having to exercise restraint. So here is it – parasites are very common, everyone has them however whether they cause problems depends on your immune system. Does it not makes sense that they would cause leaky gut? An over abundance in the gut would destroy gut tissue and take nutrients from a person and possibly put holes in the gut leading to food reactions? Digestive enzymes help to destroy the protective coating around parasites. Foods that discourage them or kill them are blackberries, garlic, cabbage, oil of oregano, peppermint oil, aloe vera juice, Braggs apple cider vinegar and more (google to find). I found medication didn't do anything so I turned to all the other. So this is how it is today. I don't suggest it is the answer to anyone else's problems but when I found this site, hidden in the posts was the beginning of the answers for me.  I may still be gluten, soy, corn intolerant but I am feeling so good now and I just thought I would tell someone.  I just wanted to share. Thanks for reading.
    • Endoscopy in 9 days after being low-gluten for a year. What to eat?
      Not to mention my hips and knees are killing me and I have really bad calf pains and horrible bloating after just 3 days of glutening. I don't think I could live like this for a whole week.
    • Endoscopy in 9 days after being low-gluten for a year. What to eat?
      I saw my gi today and he said to not worry about eating gluten. I have abdominal pain in the small intestine area and referred pain in my back, indicating pretty bad damage. So I'll just go without the gluten and do the genetic testing if needed.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
