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.co...tte/detail.aspx

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

You can use some flavors to glaze a ham. http://allrecipes.co...ham/detail.aspx

Or to make dipping sauces for rice paper spring rolls. http://allrecipes.co...uce/detail.aspx

If you are feeling really adventurous you can make your own gluten-free pop tarts: http://www.adventure...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).
