left, as it didn't set very well. Quite runny in fact.

I was about to tip it all out but decided to ask here first.
I'd like to have some ideas to useat least some of it up please.

I can only think of it in a gravy.

Hopefully some suggestions will be forthcoming for which I thank you.

Warm it up & use as a sauce on a spongy pud ... with lashings of cream too ofcourse!

Grape goes well with duck does it not? I don't usually eat duck but I could if I thought it would be delicious.

you can add it to any pickle that your making if you think of it as sugar and work on about half and half sugar and jam . dont waste it by throwing it out

heat it up- dilute with water, and drink it, dash of rum- lovely in the winter

Or bake fruit like apples & pears in the oven then use the warm jelly as a sauce for those ... along with cream :)

I think it would be nice with the duck too Val.
Or something like apricot chicken ... but using your grape jelly & some dried fruit.

Thanks for these ideas.

Any dessert ideas floating around? Apart from the great hot steamed pud idea from Rae!

There's my baked fruit one too Val ...
And how about something like golden syrup dumplings but with grape jelly.
Or heating it with cloves or cinnamon or star anise or ... and pouring over vanilla icecream.

Or layer it in cocktail glasses with fresh grapes & mascapone or yoghurt ...
Anyone would think I have a sweet tooth ;)

I put it in apple pies - lightly cook the apple first then drain off the juice (and use it for something else ). Then spoon over the grape jelly before adding the pastry top. Lovely flavour.
Or you could try diluting the grape jelly further and treating it as a syrup eg by re-boiling it and adding more water. We have just been making some grape syrup to use as a cordial with plain soda or lemonade.

Use in place of some of the liquid in muffins. . reduce sugar to adjust for sweetness in the jelly.

I sometimes use old jaminstead the sugar in a quick microwave cakey desert.

You can combine it with berries and use as the base of a sponge pudding, or in a shortcake, or as a sauce over ice cream or with yoghurt.

Again, thank you!

And to think I almost threw out my jelly.
*Shakes head in wonder*
