Did I mention... jam?
I have been prompted into these pouring out USES FOR JAM by Jackie Kaines Lang’s suggestion that after all the time spent over a preserving pan, jars may just be lurking at the back of cupboards. What a thought! There are so many and so here are mine. Do you have any to add?
Sandwiches—jammy sandwich perfect when you arrive home from school or added to cold meat, pork and apple jam, lamb and redcurrant
On hot toast, brioche, English muffins and scones
Cakes just the easiest filling and buns (American muffins) scoop out the top and pile in a small spoonful
With rice pudding—always put the jam in the bowl first, as any self-respecting six year old will know, and then put the rice on top, then slowly stir until the jam peaks out. Ready to eat.
Add a dollop of plum jam to duck or lamb or beef casseroles to give a rich sauce
Jam tarts and pastries
Essential ingredients in Queen of Puddings, Jam Sponge Pudding and Jam Roly Poly
Fill pancakes with jam or spread a thin layer and add fresh fruit—not to mention adding to waffles
How about the traditional English trifle
I love guava jelly with my cheese
Use jam as a glaze for roasting pork or ham
And finally do they eat cheesecake in Berwick? Pop some jam on top!
And next week CHUTNEY AND ITS USES
