Things to do with jam

I have hit a critical mass of jam, a whole variety of flavors. This is in part because I have found a bunch of forgotten jam in the past week-or-so. Things I could do with it:

Spread it on toast.
Mix it into yogurt.
Mix it into cake batter or integrate it into banana bread.
Use it as a meat glaze.

What else?

I tend to use jellies in gravies and sauces, or serve it with meat.

Make thumbprint cookies or use it as a filling in a gingerbread sandwich cookie.

Make scones as an excuse to eat it straight up!

Jam tarts is the obvious one for me*

*for those unacquainted: roll out short crust pastry, cut into rounds, put into a bun tray, put a dollop of jam in each and bake in the oven

On a related note, jam turnovers.

Jelly rolls? I don't have a recipe, but I have the impression they're sort of like cinnamon rolls, except with jelly/jam as the filling.

Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches?

Hmm: whether or not to use this as an excuse to buy interesting nut butters to pair these with in sandwich-form.

Glueing bits of battenburg or angel cake together. Sticking rolled icing to cakes. Dolloped on rice pudding.

I've been meaning to experiment more with rice pudding. I have a rice cookbook which has all sorts of interesting variants on it. Downside, C. doesn't like it. Upside, more for me.

English bread and suet puddings: bread and butter pudding, jam roly poly, queen of puddings, steamed jam sponge, my grandmother's Riversley trifle...

Nom, nom. Recipes on request.

I would love to know more about your grandmother's trifle.

I second the suggestions of jam tarts, jammy dodgers, jam steamed pudding and jam roly poly, and add Bakewell Tart!

Roly poly is a common suggestion, I see, but I have never tried making it. Hmm. What occasion(s) would you usually make it for? Informal breakfasting, afternoon tea accompaniament, random snacking, parties?

Stake out Nick Clegg on an ant hill and drizzle it on him

STREUSEL! A great use for jam and not too complicated. I also vote for jam roly poly, a sponge pudding with jam and second the notion of jame tarts.

Interesting - streusel always looked very complicated to me. I'm sure I must have recipes lying around for it.

Mix into a salsa, or turn into a barbecue sauce or chutney, and serve with savory foods. (I find that peach, apricot and apple jams go nicely into salsa, and berry jams make a nice barbecue sauce. The heat and the assertiveness of tomatoes and spices keeps it from being too sticky-sweet, although I add it a little at a time to make sure.)

Thank you for augmenting the list of savories in particular. Useful suggestions!

Top some brie and bake it?

Or cheese just generally. Good thought.

If you heat jam to a high temperature can it be turned into hard sweets or would it just burn?

An intriguing question! Hopefully someone else knows.
