What Would You Do With Jam?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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).

I use jam and jelly for baking.

Make some jelly roll cakes.

Use it a layer under frosting for cakes.

    • There was a study where they checked 2 weeks on a gluten-free diet , and antibodies were still going up .  The study wasn't about that, so I think that is why they didn't go any further.   So... looks like 2 months gluten free?  If we think that antibodies are still being made at least two weeks gluten free.... account for the fact that most people need a few weeks to actually figure out and eat gluten-free...I would say it was a bit soon to re- test antibodies.     Edit it to add- if you were tested sept 12 and ate gluten for 6 more weeks before going gluten-free - who knows how high it got.  Shame on your doctor for doing the re- test so soon and discouraging you!  
    • Your numbers should not be going up at all. You are getting gluten somewhere. Do you eat out? Have you read the Newbie 101 at the top of the coping section? That will help you to ferret out how you may be getting glutened. Do you have a gluten free household or is it a shared household? Do you read ingredient labels?
    • Thank you so much!!!! I have a severe allergy, I can not even walk through a grocery store without getting a migraine. I have always used dreft but now I know for a fact that it is safe.
    • I’m 62 and have just now been tested for Celiac.  My Titer was negative, I have zero IGa and too much IGg (16) which is an indicator of intolerance at the very least and may indicate the need for another endoscopy. He also tested for EPI (exocrine pancreatic insufficiency) which was negative.  I just had a colonoscopy/endoscopy last year as a part of being diagnosed w/ Gastroparesis. I also have (among other things which I’m not sure are as relevant) - T2 Diabetes, Hashimotos Thyroiditis (late 30’s) Chronic Kidney Stones (since age 40), Osteoporosis (way before Menopause and not well controlled), and Gallbladder disease.(was removed) I’m discovering that all those I listed may be related in some way, and related to Celiac.  I haven’t seen the gastro doc for followup since the testing (obtained results from lab) so I’m not sure what he’s going to recommend.  Here’s where it gets scary... my daughter has many of the same things. She was just diagnosed with EDS (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome) at 32.  She was diagnosed w/Glucose intolerance at 15, had her Gallbladder removed at 20, PCOS at 22, and Gluten intolerance at 30 (no testing, just her gastro’s recommendation). She’s been diagnosed w/Gastroparesis, POTS,  MAST Cell Activation Disorder, Peripheral Neuropathy, (lost use of her bladder and has a neuro stimulator) - all in the last year.  Too much coincidence for me.  This has to be all related. I keep reading more and more studies linking all these things (like EDS and Celiac) together. My daughters  geneticist is blown away by the multiple overlapping and co-morbid conditions we have and tells us it’s not uncommon. She also says research is expanding.  Sadly, the specialist docs seem baffled and can’t even begin to address our issues, and only help to manage the symptoms - sometimes. And every “Disease/Disorder” has a “diet” or protocol, and they are all at odds with each other - very frustrating.  I guess the moral of this story is to let others know that there’s a lot more to all this than meets the eye. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re fine if you have what seem to be strange unrelated symptoms. You’re not crazy. Keep fighting for understanding and knowledge. Be an advocate for yourself, you’re loved ones,  for us all.
