what to do with marmalade?

I found a jar of marmalade in pantry and was wondering what to do with it besides eat it on toast. this stuff is really strong with big pieces of peel so I can't really cook with it. It's english dark breakfast marmalade by elsenham.

thx in advance

          Chipotle-Marmalade Sauce Recipe with Pork Tenderloin.

          This is one of my favorite sauces. I could simply dunk pieces of bread into it, or eat
          it with a spoon and be perfectly happy.

          From Bon Appetit.

        2. One of Nigella's books has a recipe for a chocolate orange cake that calls for a jar of marmalade. As I recall, it's a ridiculously simple recipe, and I really enjoyed the cake when I made it. I can find it and paraphrase this evening if you like.

          Or you can try using it as the filling in a layer cake. Might be nice on a chocolate or vanilla sponge.

          1. On New Scandanavian Cooking, Andreas made an interesting sammich composed of ham, Jarlsburg, blue cheese, and marmelade on toast. I tried it too and it was quite delicious.
