Recipe using apricot jam?

  • l

Just got a great deal on some excellent apricot jam (well, more like preserves) so I bought three jars. Now, what do I do with it? I would like some ideas that aren't sweets as well if there are recipes out there...thanks in advance.

  1. You could use it in a chutney w/ some ginger and dried fruit to accompany pork or ham.

    If it's good stuff though, I would probably just save it and eat it straight on hot-out-of-the-oven popovers...mmmm...

    1. This is a favorite pizza of mine. White crust, thin layer of apricot jam, roast chicken breast slices, sprinkled sliced scallions, top with swiss cheese or similar. Yumm....O! :)

      1. on good toasts with butter ?

        or maybe as a glaze on veal or pork ?

        1. We used to always take a puff pastry and top it with a softened wedge of smoked gouda. Pour a generous amount of apricot jam over and fold up the pastry sheet to enclose. Bake according to pkg directions. Then slice into melty wedges - yum!

            Gouda? Fascinating. I've only ever done this with Brie.

            I have also glazed chicken with an apricot coffee marinade...
            ½ cup coffee, dark roast or espresso
            8 TB apricot jam
            1/3 cup dry sherry
            2 tsp fresh lime juice
            2 tsp corn oil
            1 tsp salt

            Marinade for 4 hours if you're going to grill, 1 hour if you're going to bake. Good with sour cream.

              Dave lieberman has a great apricot chix recipe with apricot jam, garlic and chicken pieces. Pop in oven for 40 min and delish.
