You would be surprised how much you can do with jams or jellies. I recently came across a local jelly maker, Dave's Hot Pepper Jelly, who makes super spicy jams and jellies. They are not your typical breakfast spreads, his strawberry habanero is a great sauce over crispy chicken. My wife eats the blueberry jalapeno on crackers. Both are just amazing!
My favourite is only homemade apricot jam but I managed to buy some jam in Victoria which was mango with ginger. It was the best jam I had ever tasted. I wished I had of bought more than one jar as I couldn't get it in South aust.
My grandmother and mum always made our jams and pickles. My favourites were strawberries, apricot and orange/lemon marmalade. Ohhh and the delicious lemon butter from surplus of lemons. I do prefer the chunks of fruit in the jams.
