7 Ways with Raspberry Jam
In the last post in this series, we took a look at some of the best recipes across the Internet for strawberry jam. This month, we’re concentrating on its close cousin, raspberry jam.
Remember, if you want to make any of these recipes yourself, you can pick up the best quality artisan raspberry jam in our shop, where we currently have three different flavours including raspberry and chocolate!
Gin & Jam
Your first thought when cranking open a delicious jar of raspberry jam might not be alcohol, but we urge you to give this idea a go. This cocktail recipe from Honestly Yum is inspired, and absolutely perfect for hot summer days – not that we’ve had many of those just yet here in the UK!
Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies
Thumbprint cookies are a classic. They’re the perfect little vessel for plenty of delicious jam, and they’ve been executed beautifully by Jaclyn of Cooking Classy in this recipe.
We’re amazed by her steady hand in icing these puppies, too. Good job, Jaclyn!
The cream tea is the most delicious of British traditions, as far as we’re concerned. Use this classic
BBC Food recipe for plain scones, spread them with lashings of raspberry passion fruit jam followed by a great big dollop of good quality clotted cream. Oh, and serve with a freshly brewed pot of tea of course!
Chocolate and Raspberry Rugelach
This beautiful recipe was first featured in the Smitten Kitchen cookbook and blogged about by The Long Session, we think his photographs are stunning. This is a particularly interesting recipe as there’s a hunk of cream cheese in the dough – we can’t wait to try it!
Raspberry Marshmallow Bars
This amazing recipe from A Balance of Tastes is bound to bring pure joy in the form of ooey gooey mallowy-ness to your kitchen. The mix of textures sounds out of this world, we’d love to take a bite
Have you heard of lamingtons? We hadn’t until we found this recipe on Oh Sweet Day! Apparently they’re very popular in Australia, little cubes of sponge cake spread with raspberry jam and dipped in chocolate – what could be better?
Raspberry Chocolate Cake
We love that The Furious Pear Pie uses just a smidge of raspberry jam to brighten this gorgeous chocolate layer cake, doesn’t it look wonderful? It makes for the perfect birthday cake, might we recommend using raspberry chocolate jam…?
