Ample Hills' PB&J Ice Cream

Peanut butter and jelly is a classic combination, but it's the way these flavors come together in this ice cream that makes it great. First, a fat scoop of PB is stirred into a sweet cream ice cream base, then, just before serving, spoonfuls of jelly are folded into the finished product. It keeps the flavors separate, letting them, quite literally, melt in your mouth. More

Prosecco and Elderflower Jelly with Melon

According to Home Made Summer author Yvette van Boven, every children's party in Ireland served jelly and cream for dessert. The combination wasn't a favorite, but the memory of refreshingly jiggly jelly stuck. This version has a flowery, delicate flavor bubbled up with prosecco. Adding edible flowers is the final, lovely touch. More

Classic Mint Jelly

If you're planning to serve grilled or roasted lamb for Easter dinner, skip the neon green store-bought mint jelly and whip up this simple homemade version. Mildly sweet and pleasingly tart, it bursts with fresh mint flavor. More

Champagne Jelly

You don't need to use the fancy French stuff for this recipe—any decent, drinkable sparkling wine will work. Your jelly might look a bit loose at the end of the cooking time, but don't fret. Your jars may need to sit overnight to set properly. More

Pomegranate Jelly

This quick and simple pomegranate jelly makes a perfect gift for Valentine's Day. The secret is to use top quality store-bought pomegranate juice. Feel free to experiment with blends like pomegranate-grape or pomegranate-raspberry. More

Mulled Wine Jelly

This quick and easy recipe combines all the flavors of mulled wine in a festive, elegant jelly. If you don't have premixed mulling spices, simply add a few cinnamon sticks, star anise, whole cloves, and strips of orange zest to the pot with the wine. This jelly can take up to two weeks to set properly, so plan ahead! More

Caramel Apple Cider Jelly

Because apple cider is unfiltered, this jelly looks a bit cloudy in the jar—much like a glass of apple cider. The intense, tangy apple flavor is complemented by a luxurious, molasses note from the brown sugar. I used cinnamon sticks, cloves, and lemon zest, but any toasty, fall-friendly spices would be delicious. Experiment with whole allspice berries, star anise, cardamom pods, or slices of fresh ginger.

Cook the Book: PBJ

I must confess that I don't like peanut butter, nor its classic incarnation in a PBJ. It sticks to your mouth! Why would I want something to stick to the roof of my mouth like that? Yes, there's milk, but... More
