What Would You Do With Jam?
0

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).

    • Anxiety is quite a common symptom with undiagnosed celiacs. It should improve if not disappear when you go gluten free. Be sure to CONTINUE eating gluten until the endoscopy!   Welcome to the club!
    • Although serological tests are useful for identifying celiac disease, it is well known that a small minority of celiacs are seronegative, and show no blood markers for celiac disease. A team of researchers wanted to define the prevalence and features of seronegative compared to seropositive celiac disease, and to establish whether celiac disease is a common cause of seronegative villous atrophy.

    • This was absolutely me before diagnosis.  The worst of all of my Celiac symptoms occurred in the morning.  The anxiety was terrible in the mornings, I had horrible nausea, no appetite, felt light headed, dizzy and shaky, diarrhea, stomach cramps... the works.  Honestly, I don't know if it was the symptoms causing the anxiety, the anxiety making my symptoms worse, or a combination.  I almost dropped out of school because I felt so terrible every morning I didn't want to leave the house to go to class.  The first few doctors I saw insisted all of my symptoms were psychological and tried to give me anti-depressants/anti-anxiety meds, but I knew there was something else wrong with me.  I had always been a bit "high-strung," but for the year I was really sick before diagnosis, the anxiety got out of control. I was diagnosed with celiac disease 6 months ago and have been gluten free ever since.  It took time, but everything is gradually improving.  The morning anxiety is much improved and some mornings, is completely gone.  I realized a month or two ago that I no longer spend the first hour after waking up gagging and dry-heaving, something I had done for so many years that I just thought it was normal for me.  I can brush my teeth and my tongue without feeling like I'm going to puke.  I eat breakfast now, which I have never done, because I was always too anxious and nauseous in the mornings to be hungry.  I am not "all better."  I still have bad days and even bad weeks.  If I get glutened the anxiety comes back full force.  If I'm super-stressed out or letting my health slide (not eating well, not sleeping enough) the AM anxiety seems to return.  But, it has been slowly improving over the last 6 months and has become so much more manageable.   Your anxiety could be a separate disorder from the celiac disease, but for me, it seems it was absolutely related and continues to get better.  Don't get discouraged if you don't see an immediate improvement or experience relapses after improving.  Often, I feel like it's a two-step-forward, one-step-back kind of thing, but it is getting better.
    • I have suffered with GERD for 20 years and accidently found out it was a gluten intolerance. I had gone on Atkins years ago and noticed that I had no GERD symptoms while on the diet. I didn't make the connection at that time. Then I went on the Mayo Diet back in the winter and once again, the constant was having no bread primarily. I had also noticed that I would have major attacks anytime I ate Italian food. I blamed it on the onions, the tomatoes, herbs...but I could tolerate all those foods separately. Then, like a lightning bolt...it hit me...the culprit was the "innocent" pasta. BINGO!!  I went gluten-free in March 2016 and I have had no GERD now in 5 months. I feel as if it is a gift to me.   
    • Hey everyone!! Dealt with morning anxiety, complete lack of appetite in the AM/diarrhea if I tried to eat, fatigue, etc. for about two months. Saw doctor and they first prescribed me antidepressants while they ran bloodwork. Got bloodwork yesterday, positive result for celiac, going to get the endoscopy/biopsy soon. Anyone else have morning anxiety like CRAZY before cutting out gluten? Afraid to leave the house because of feeling faint, dizzy, etc., like I'm going to pass out. I haven't actually passed out, but the feelings are all there. It's hard to overcome the anxiety some time!   Hoping someone else has had similar symptoms and that I can look forward to this being over soon!! Thanks everyone xoxo
