Strawberries and Champagne Jam

A beautiful strawberry jam with a hint of champagne that makes a tasty gourmet gift!

Spiked Peach Jam with Ginger

Rating: 5 stars

This is a great jam for peaches that are not picture-perfect but nice and ripe. The riper they are, the more juice they will release when marinating. Combined with ginger and amaretto liqueur, the peach jam tastes divine.

Raspberry Fruit Spread without Pectin

Rating: 4.75 stars

I was experimenting with making jam without pectin and it turned out really yummy. You need to cook the raspberries for a pretty long time until they fall apart.

Rhubarb Apricot Jam

Rhubarb and dried apricots are an excellent combination for jam, as the tartness of the rhubarb and the mellow taste of the apricots work well together. Pink rhubarb works best in this recipe, and the color is nicer than with green rhubarb as well. Weigh the rhubarb without the leaves for an accurate ratio.

No-Sugar Raspberry Jam

I developed this recipe for a friend who has diabetes. She complained that most diabetic jams had sweeteners added leaving a strange aftertaste. Fresh fruit, when in season, is naturally sweet. To make jam, you don't need to add sugar. A little agar-agar and lemon will help the cooked fruit thicken to make a spreadable fruit for toast, sandwiches, or cheeses. It will last up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator. This recipe will work with all forest fruits.

Apricot Lavender Jam

My trick to infuse the lavender aroma into the jam is to process a portion of the sugar with the lavender.

Spicy Cayenne Tomato Jam

This tomato jam has a sweet and spicy kick that goes great with meats and cheeses. Serve it up with grilled chicken and pork or slather over some crusty baguette with ricotta cheese. Enjoy!

Grapefruit Marmalade

Ruby red grapefruit and sugar is all you need to make a slightly bitter, sweet, and tangy marmalade. Try this on toast or, for a twist, use it in any recipe calling requiring orange jam or marmalade. I have used it on meatballs and chicken wings with delicious results. Make sure you use organic grapefruit to ensure an edible zest.

This strawberry freezer jelly is quick, easy and delicious on toast, ice cream or even in milkshakes! Keep jars of this in the freezer and take them out when you are ready to use them. Once thawed, they will last approximately 1 month in the refrigerator. If it lasts that long!

Chef John's Kumquat Marmalade

If marmalade is not your favorite type of fruit preserve, it's most likely because of those bitter flavors from the white parts of whatever type of citrus was used. That is not an issue with this gorgeous kumquat marmalade.

This is an easy onion jam that is incredibly versatile. It enhances anything from rice or barley dishes to spreading on a piece of bread. Great accompaniment to chicken as well. You can substitute sherry vinegar for the balsamic vinegar.
