HOW TO: Make a Jam Glaze

Tonight my mom made and sent over dinner for my birthday. She made roasted pork tenderloin, barley, and a green salad.

What does this have to do with making a jam glaze? you ask. 

Well, she also sent over a plain white cheesecake. Plain. White. Cheesecake.

R quipped, "Mamma, we're so proud of you that you didn't make your own birthday cake this year!"

While I was grateful that my birthday dessert was taken care of, I wanted to fancy it up a little bit. So, I whipped up a jam glaze with Friend in Cheeses Jam Co.'s brand new Prickly Purple Heart Jam and topped it all with some edible flowers I had on-hand.  Happy birthday to me!!

This recipe is more of a procedure. Use whatever jam or jelly you have. Use any liquid you want, even liqueurs would be fantastic.


Place the jam and liquid - either simple syrup or water - in a small skillet. Heat until the jam is melted and loosened into a sauce. Simmer for a few minutes. Stir in the lemon juice. Let stand for 5 to 10 minutes before pouring over whatever you're glazing. If you want it to set quickly, stick it in the fridge for a few minutes.
