People keep a variety of jams and preserves in their refrigerators at all times. Fruit spreads are a great option when you want to add some fruity flavour to your everyday meals. Jams and preserves can be used for a variety of purposes, from cookies to cakes to breakfast snacks and everything in between.

This collection of recipes includes some of the best and most popular jam recipes. While many of these recipes call for a specific taste, you can typically replace it with your favourite jam or relish too. 

Blueberry jam bars

Cream cheese and blueberries, whenever they're combined spell magic. Blueberry Jam Cream Cheese Bars are a delicious treat. They're buttery, sweet, and impossible to resist.

Strawberry cupcakes

Because fresh strawberries are high in water content, they tend to weigh down cake mixes and result in mushy cakes. As a result, strawberry jam or preserves are used in these strawberry cupcakes. For light and soft cupcakes, the concentrated flavour is ideal.

Butter almond cake

One of my favourite ways to use jams is in Brown Butter Almond Cake with Apricot Whipped Cream. To make a quick and easy frosting, carefully fold them into sweetened whipped cream. The apricot topping is the ideal complement to this nutty cake.

Linzer bars

Linzer Cookies are most commonly associated with the holidays, but there's no reason why you can't have them anytime you want. And these Linzer Bars make things a lot easier by reducing the amount of rolling and cutting required. You may make them using a number of preserves or jams, or just use your favourite.

Lemon blueberry bars

Lemons and blueberries are a terrific flavour combination, and these Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake Bars appear to be no exception. Between the crust and the filling, there's a layer of blueberry jam that's the ideal match to the lemony filling.

Raspberry coconut-oat bars

There are a plethora of fruit spread-based bar recipes to choose from. Raspberry Coconut-Oat Bars, on the other hand, appear to be exceptionally tasty. The crust, the jams, and the coconut all come together to make a truly delicious dessert.

Slow cooker strawberry cake

This slow-cooked strawberry twist on cola cake comes in handy when you want a sweet cake without the heat of the oven. The topping has a delectable aroma of chocolate-covered strawberries. Delicious with a jam mix and whipped cream or powdered sugar on top.

Sweet and sour meatballs

You don't even need to consider this one. Put three ingredients in your slow cooker- meatballs, grape jam, and chilli sauce and let the magic unfold as you go about your day. Serve as a dinner appetiser or as an appetiser at a gathering.
