My family enjoys using jams, jellies, fruit spreads and fruit butter as part of our meal time. Spreading it on toast and hot butter rolls are some of the favorite ways we enjoy them. We also like to use them with waffles, pancakes (especially the German version), scones, and don’t forget the traditional PB and J sandwiches.
I also like into incorporate jams, jellies, fruit spreads and fruit butter into recipe too. Here are some of my favorites.
- Strawberry Filled Cupcakes
- Fruit Salsa
- Strawberry Jam Buttercream
- Raspberry Butter
- Apricot Dipping Sauce and Pineapple Orange Dipping Sauce
- Hot Roast Beef Party Sandwiches
- Pineapple Apricot Chicken Skewers
- Pecan Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast with Almond Citrus Syrup
- Quick Sweet and Sour Meatballs
