I have all the basics Strawberry, raspberry, plum, etc.
What are your favorites? My jam cupboard is looking a bit bare these days and I need some inspiration!! Hit me with links!

I sadly don't have as much time as I would want to dedicate to making my own preserves, but this is an item that I purchased a couple of weeks ago and I ABSOLUTELY LOOOVE IT!! (I use all caps when I'm really excited about something):
In other words, the mysterious link above is for Sour Power: a tart fruit spread made with sour cherries and rhubarb. I'm pretty crazy about tart and sour food items, so this one is right up my alley.
I also make a delicious quince marmelade using my grandmother's recipe - I'll post it here later. It takes a lot of work, as quince is a hard fruit and you have to grate it (similar to grating pumpkin if you want to make pumpkin pie from scratch) - but the result is a flavorful, chunky golden bliss.
Three of my favorites -
All three are great with roasted meats, and I make a crockpot pork roast with a full jar of the apricot jam fairly often that is amazing.

I do a similar pork roast with apricot jam and caramelized onions. I'm so jammy lately-I've been making a ton!
