Before I started making my own jam, I wasn’t a big jam buyer. So when my pantry was stocked with berry, peach, and strawberry jam after my first year of food preserving, I did ask myself a few times, “What the heck are you going to do with all of that jam?” Yes, they’re perfect for giving as gifts, but still. So I thought it might be helpful to share with you a few ways I’m using all of that jam.
These are my favorite drop scones, you know the bones to this recipe. But instead of adding any nuts or dried fruit, I form the dough more into the shape of “jammers”, or scones with a center top pool of jam.
Big tablespoons of jam go into the specially shaped dough, and cook right along with the scone itself. In these photos I used my peach preserves: they’re pretty sweet and are perfect for this use.
These scones were made for jammin’, and that’s just what they’ll do, these scones were made for jammin’ and they’ll jam all over you.
