Jams, Jellies, or Preserves

Besides the all time favorite PBJ sandwich, the team at Myrtle Creek Nursery & Farmhouse Shop share some of their favorite ways to use jams, jellies and preserves. Our line of fruit spreads, jams and jellies are delish! Check them out!

  • You can swirl jams/fruit spreads into cheesecake batter and get a nice marbling effect as well as a fruit taste.
  • You can top a cheesecake with jam or fruit spread.
  • Add to a muffin mix or place a dollop of jam in the middle of a muffin.
  • Add to pancake or waffle batter or top with fruit.
  • Between prepared French toast spread jam and cream cheese for a stuffed French toast.
  • Heat the jam/fruit spread just until warm and spoon over ice cream or frozen yogurt.
  • You can always add fruit spreads to smoothies or milkshakes.
  • Make plain custard, rice, tapioca, or vanilla pudding and stir in jam, plus fresh fruit if available and appropriate, to create a fruit pudding.
  • You can use the jelly/jam instead of sugar or simple syrup to sweeten up mixed drinks and cocktails.
  • When it gets blended up you have no clue it’s there. It not only makes a too sour cocktail, drinkable, but it adds an extra layer of flavor to the drinks as well.
  • Think outside the box and use them instead of sugar whenever you think their flavor will complement your dish. We use jams all the time in salad dressings, sauces or glazes.
