Why do you have to use it up quickly? If you need the jars for something, that's one matter, but even then, it'll freeze. (I know that sounds odd, but it will.) If you want to leave it in the jars, it keeps for ages, never mind what the date on the jars says.

Lol, I hate to use it so fast, it's the kind of jam I want to savour... nyum!

But anyway, yes, my DH needs the jars for a little project - don't know what, and not sure I want to ask!! (Let the boys play - keeps them happy!)

So, the proviso was that we'd get the jam but that we had to find use for the jam! Actually, they'd make rather good jars for glass painting... hmm, i can see arguments happening over these jars!

I might just see if I can get some plastic containers today and store it in that.

Otherwise it's off to Tesco and I'll be buying readymade pastry.

Don't get me wrong, I can make pastry, but that amount of pastry.. lol - I've got better things to do this weekend than become a pastry chef ! Like.... erm.... !!

Too darn right!!

Actually, today kinda got hijacked - the weather was so nice that the knitting kinda got overlooked for the chance to get out in the garden and "do" something to it!

But that's ok - it's supposed to be raining tomorrow!

Do you know American Science & Surplus?
They have dozens of styles of little jars and bottles, among other things you can't resist, all at ridiculously low prices.

Go here: http://www.sciplus.com/stores.cfm

and click on "Containers." They have to have something perfect for your husband's project.

Then enjoy the jam at leisure. It sounds too good just to scarf down.

Thanks for that link Knitasha... lol, do they deliver to the uk? #goes to look#!

I found a workaround - a couple of air tight plastic containers and a jar with cling film over the top!

It's toast for breakfast, toast for 11's, and toast for supper! YaY!!

I've seen recipes which use jam/jelly for meatballs... like this one http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Vegetar...ls/Detail.aspx or this one http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Cocktai...IV/Detail.aspx

You could also do a trifle or grilled PB&J. You can do ingredient searches at Allrecipes, too.
