Garlic Jam – Our personal favorite is in Mashed Potatoes, or you can mix with cream cheese & serve as a Dip, use instead of Salsa, make Garlic Bread out of it, use as a Relish, glaze any type of meat or chicken, mix into Hamburg to make Meatloaf, Hamburgers, or Meatballs, put in when you sauté Veggies, or slice a baguette & put cheese (blue, gouda or chevier) on it and top with the Garlic Jam and serve as an appetizer.

Hot Pepper Jam or Atomic Hot Pepper Jam -Mix with Cream Cheese and serve on a bagel or with Crackers as a Dip.  You can also use on any type of beef as a glaze or heat & put on a chicken, roast beef or turkey sandwich.  Slice a baguette & put cheese (blue, gouda or chevier) on it and top with the Pepper Jam and serve as an appetizer.  Also makes a great relish on any sandwich or hot dog/hamburger or as a glaze on Killam & Bassette spare or country style ribs.

Zucchini Relish (Sugar Free or Regular) – It’s a delicious relish on hot dogs & hamburgers but it’s also great in the hamburger as you’re making the burger, in meatloaf, or in meatballs.  Add to any Tuna or Egg Salad for extra flavor or to cooked fish.  You can also add it to Cold Pasta Salad or Potato Salad as well.  Mix the relish with mayo and make a great Tarter Sauce!
