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?

On porridge:)
As a filling/topping for cake (any sort of sponge usually works).
A spoonful of jam mixed with boiling water makes a good hot drink.
Many homeless shelters also accept donations of food and drink (my local one prefers strawberry jam rather than any other sort according to their website...).

Part of the reason for feeling quite so overwhelmed by jam was discovering a couple of jars bought over a year ago, with the intention of giving them as gifts ("Chaucer jam") which are now several months past their best-before. I am certain they'll be fine still, but suspect places taking donations would prefer things that are clearly within their best-befores.

Also, the majority of these jams are not at all traditional flavors, with the exception of the Chaucer-black cherry jam, and the homemade Seville orange marmalade.
