6 Ways to Use Jam That You've Never Thought Of
Think beyond the PB&J with these creative ways to use jam. MORE+ LESS-


We be jammin’! We’re loving jam for everything from flavoring a summer-rific cocktail (yeah, you read that right) to adding a sweet/tart hit in savory appetizers. And, of course, for spreading fruity goodness onto sweet breakfast goodies—but in ways that seem almost unnatural.

Jam on, friends. Jam on.


1. Gin and Jam Cocktail

Say it out loud, and you can’t hide the smile: Gin and Jam. Sounds like a super-cute folk duo. Or, a pretty-pretty cocktail deliciously served in a classic coupe glass.


2. Chocolate Chip-Jam Strips

Some would call them cookies. Others would ID these beauts as “bars”. The awesome thing is that they’re a little of both, with luscious jam pulling it all together.


3. Chocolate, Peanut Butter and Jam Cookie Bars 

Chocolate and peanut butter: that’s a recipe for amazing right there. But mix in some sweet fruity jam, and it’s a transcendental experience. Taste for yourself. Thank us later.


4. Cranberry Brie Bites

We love our one-bite wonders and these appetizers are the cream of the crop, with melty cream cheese, cranberry tartness and flaky.... sorry, no time to chat. Gotta go make some NOW.


5. Strawberry Cream Cheese Mini Wraps

The next time you get a craving for pie, here’s the shortest distance between you and sweet, sweet satisfaction: four-ingredient, super-simple mini pies.


6. French Toast Roll-Ups

This is your chance to play chef. Add orange marmalade or strawberry jam, or mix flavors together in this invent-as-you-go approach to French toast. Now that’s bon appetizing!
