So I looked up in the cupboard and saw all this jam I had made last year. I don't know what I was thinking! We really don't eat it so much of it.
So I've been getting creative: dehydrated jelly treats, meat baked with jelly, and homemade yogurt with jelly mixed in is fine. I posted another recipe on my blog if anyone's interested
Any other ideas?
Oh, I've given as much as I can!
Thanks for the good ideas.
My husband likes vanilla ice cream, which I find to be a waste of calories, but you can mix in jellies to the plain vanilla ice cream or use it as a topping to make it edible.
Oh I also like to mix it w/ cottage cheese for a slightly sweet high protien treat.

I like a bit of it with plain non-fat yogurt...
Just a little bit of jam makes boring yogurt a wonderful treat!
It makes a yummy glaze for meats or vegetables, or on stir-fry
Favorite jelly or jam, 3-4 heaping tablespoons
Enough water to liquify it
Fresh ginger, about the size of your thumbnail, chopped fine
Crushed red pepper, little or a lot, to taste
Heat in small saucepan until blended, simmer for 10-15 minutes to meld the flavors. May have to add a little more water. It gives some zing to a recipe you have grown tired of.
Quickie fruit turn overs
Can of biscuits
Roll each biscuit flat, put jelly in the middle, fold over and mash the edges together.
Bake as for directions on the can of biscuits.
We use it on waffles, pancakes, etc (as described above) on vanilla ice cream to have sundaes, or to make milkshakes with, and in yogurt. LOTS of good uses for it.
