Since 2007 Retro Festive has been Canada’s original supplier of all things Griswold. We started with moose mugs and Griswold Family Christmas gear, and are now proud to introduce the Jelly of the Month Club gift set, inspired by the movie National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.
“I was expecting a check. Instead I got enrolled in a jelly club!” – Clark Griswold
The Jelly of the Month Club gift set is the gift that keeps on giving the whole year with 12 jars of jellies and jams made by Greaves Jams and Marmalades in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario. The gift set is exclusively available in Canada and includes a monthly checklist with space for tasting notes, and a festive Jelly of the Month Club certificate.
But what do you do with your jam besides toast, crumpets and PB&J sandwiches? Here are some jelly and jam recipes to try out the whole year!
Muffins are a great snack on the go, a wonderful addition to a potluck brunch, and a nice pick-me-up with your coffee. This versatile recipe for Jam Muffins will be a lovely way to highlight all of the jam and jelly flavours.
Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies
Instead of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, try Michael Smith’s Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies! You can use any kind of jelly you’d like and personalize each one.
Sweet and Spicy Chicken Drumsticks
If you like strong yet balanced flavours, try these delicious Sweet and Spicy Chicken Drumstick recipe that uses a little strawberry jam to balance the heat of the hot sauce.
The Traditional Icelandic cake Vinarterta can also be made with any kind of jam, but purists will tell you it must be prune jam. This layered treat is a great addition to any party spread.
We also like using different jellies and jam in plain yogurt with our breakfast all year long!
