We love the versatility of jam—it can be added to roast pork for a hint of sweetness, or to toast with ricotta cheese for a divine breakfast. Spread strawberry jam on grilled-cheese sandwiches, fill doughnut holes with raspberry jam or top pork sandwiches with spicy pineapple jam. One of our favorite jam flavors is peach and ginger—fresh ginger's tangy bite makes for amazing flavor in these biscuit breakfast sandwiches. Whether you're looking for a sweet breakfast idea or the next-level PB&J, Food & Wine's guide to jam has a recipe for every occasion.

Blueberry-Coriander Jam
Toasting coriander seeds before grinding them enhances their earthy, lemony flavor, adding dimension to this homemade berry jam. Use it as a sensational breakfast spread, or do as Sasha Piligian does, and work it into the buttercream frosting for a stunning Lemon Chiffon Cake with Blueberry-Coriander Buttercream.
Peach-Rosé Jam
When the middle of summer hits and you have more peaches than you can handle, this easy rosé-infused peach jam makes a crowd-pleasing treat. Steeping a vanilla bean pod in the rosé as it reduces on the stove perfumes this jam with a rich vanilla flavor and gorgeous flecks of vanilla bean seeds, but feel free to substitute a teaspoon of vanilla extract in a pinch.
Blueberry-Beaujolais Jam
Full of concentrated fruit flavor and bright acid from the Gamay–grape based wine, this jam sings with the sweet, ripe summer blueberries. While it provides the perfect contrast to the goat cheese and butter on 2007 Best New Chef Gabriel Rucker’s Ham-Jam Sandwiches, this sweet-tart jam also makes a next-level addition to a cheese and charcuterie board. To save time, make this jam up to 2 weeks ahead of time.
