Strawberry Jam Whipped Cream

Strawberry jam whipped cream is simple to make, and tastes just like strawberry ice cream! 
Strawberry Whipped Cream | Savvy Eats Ever since February,  I have not been able to stop thinking about new and creative ways to use my preserves. I’ve made oat bars filled with raspberry preserves and glazed a ham steak with pepper jelly. In Jamaica, we had a brick oven pizza that used a mango jam in place of tomato sauce for a Hawaiian pizza, and now I can’t stop thinking about using marmalade or chutney on a grilled pizza. I want to make jam-swirled scones and glazed pork tenderloin, jam milkshakes and apple butter-filled cake.

For today, I’m keeping it simple. Whipping cream, while not exactly a pantry staple, is certainly a nice staple to keep on hand in your refrigerator. It takes less than 10 minutes to beat it into fluffy submission, and then you have sweet whipped cream to top cakes, ice cream, waffles or hot chocolate.  Here, I’ve whisked in a few tablespoons of strawberry jam, turning the plain whipped cream into an airy strawberry ice cream copycat.

Serve it on waffles with some peanut butter. Scoop it on top of chocolate ice cream. Spoon a thick layer on top of hot chocolate. Or, you know, just eat it by the spoonful.  Dessert is ready!

April: Pantry Staples

Jamaica Collage

Welcome to April! As you may have gathered from Instagram, Dan and I just returned from a weeklong vacation, our first trip that was just for the two of us, and not to visit family or friends, since our honeymoon nearly four years ago. We spent a week on the beach in Jamaica, reading, swimming, snorkeling, and reading some more. There was lots of sun, plenty of cocktails (one of the benefits of staying at an all-inclusive!) and a whole lot of unwinding and relaxation.  I prescheduled all of last week’s posts, and didn’t touch my email or anything else Internet-related for the entire trip. After a stressful winter for both of us, it was exactly what Dan and I needed.

Now I’m back, and ready to jump back into things. This month, we’re talking pantry staples: from caramelized onions to grab-and-go snacks to marinades and everything in between. Rather than filling your fridge and pantry with store-bought condiments, you can make your own! You’ll know exactly what ingredients went into your sauces, and you can customize them to your exact tastes. It is a win-win!

So let’s get going, shall we? I’ll be back later this week with the first staple recipe!

xoxo, Julie
