8 Ways to Use Toe Jam

Toe Jam has a wonderful citrus flavor and makes a great spread, glaze or topping
T.O.E. Jam - Tangerine, Orange & Elderberry Jam

If you're looking for something a little out-of-the-ordinary, our Toe Jam can't be beat.  After all, it's not everyday you hear someone say, "Man, I really wish I had some Toe Jam to go with these Ritz Crackers."  But once you try our best-selling T.O.E. Jam, you'll feel the need to buy a jar, and maybe one for each of your friends.  Toe Jam combines tangerines, oranges and elderberry into a tangy, citrus-flavored jam that blends wonderfully into sweet and savory dishes in addition to being a fruit spread on breads, pastries, and meats. 

Spread, Glaze & Top it Off

The beauty of Toe Jam is that it's more than just a jar of jam you'll reach for every morning when you make your English muffin,  it's a jar of epicurean pleasures and possibilities.  You can use T.O.E. Jam as a spread for sandwiches, use it to create a glaze for pork, lamb or chicken, or use it as a topping over fruit crumble or my favorite, the fruit center of jamwich cookies.  In fact, there are so many ways to use Toe Jam, we've decided to make you a helpful list.
