20 Unique Recipes For Canning Jam

One of the best parts of summer is eating all the juicy and delicious fruits and veggies fresh from the garden. While we'd love to eat like this all year round, the reality is that the cold weather sets in eventually and all of our summer treats come to an end. Fortunately, we can capture a little bit of summer gold to hoard away for the winter in the form of jam.

Canning jam is a way of preserving summer produce in a natural process that destroys the organism that spoils food. From maple whiskey peach jam to kumquat jalapeno jam, you’ll find endless combinations sure to delight all year round!

Check out our wonderful collection of 20 yummy and unique recipes for canning jam now.

Raspberry Lemon Thyme Jam

This jam is pretty straight up bright raspberry with a zing of lemon and just a hint of something herbalicious.  The lemon thyme helps to give a little extra kick.

Maple Peach Whisky Jam

This jam would be great on toast or scones, inside a grilled cheese, spooned over ice cream, or, you could do what we did – spread it on a crostini and top it with blue cheese and prosciutto.

Pink Grapefruit and Vanilla Bean Jam

This citrus jam is a little different because grapefruit has a characteristic bitter flavor which most people either love or they don’t.  If you like marmalade, then you will probably like this.

Pink Gooseberry Elderflower Jam

It’s a happy coincidence that elderflowers are often out when gooseberries come into season, and so the classic combination of gooseberry and elderflower is often seen in old cookbooks, as well as in modern-day shops and restaurants.

Via Lavender and Lovage

Zucchini Peach Jelly

You can use this jelly as a condiment. It's always a conversation piece—everyone wonders about the “green” ingredient! This beautiful jelly is so easy to make and I often use it as a gift-giving item for the holidays.

For those who usually give away their jams as gifts, you may be in trouble with this recipe. It’s so tasty, you definitely won’t be sharing.

Honey Sweetened Rhubarb Fig Jam

A thick, perfectly spreadable jam is achieved with this delightful recipe. Because neither of the fruits are high in acidity, and there isn’t a boatload of sweetener in it.

Here’s another favorite jam from this season…sweet, tart fresh plums with just a wisp of summer rose. Perfect for breakfast or afternoon tea on a cold fall-ish day.

Strawberry Chipotle Jam

At first taste, it’s pure delicious strawberry.  But, comin’ up from behind is a lovely smoky, slow burn from the chipotles.

Via Tide and Thyme

Habanero Jelly

This jelly served on top of a block of cream cheese is just about the best cheese and crackers event in town.

Via The Meaning of Pie

Cranberry Sriracha Pepper Jelly

This ruby-hued, sweet and spicy jelly is made from cranberries, fresh orange juice, jalapeños, sugar and a favorite condiment here at The Café, Sriracha. Sriracha is a fabulous hot sauce made from sun ripened chilies, and in combination with the jalapeños, adds a unique, delicious layer of heat.

Via The Cafe Sucre Farine

Garam Masala Nectarine Jam

We absolutely recommend trying this jam… it's better than plain old peach and it will be a pleasant surprise in the pantry on a cold winter morning.
