10 Unique Jam and Jelly Recipes

I absolutely love canning, one because I hate seeing anything go to waste, but two because – hello?

You can make some pretty delicious things!

From jellies and jams, to salsa’s and butters and many things in between.

Here are 10 of my favorite unique jelly or jam recipes.

Several I will be making this summer to try and some I will be making again because they have found a home in our kitchen. Enjoy!

Have a unique jelly recipe? Link it in the comments below!

1. Corn Cob Jelly  

Maybe the most unique Jelly I’ve made or even tried to date.

I love this jelly,  it has an almost honey-like flavor to it, buttery and sweet.

It is also relatively easy for a beginner.

2 . Banana Jam

We’ve made something similar to this recipe, but definitely not this exact one.

It is coming soon, but in the meantime, this recipe looks intriguing and we are definitely interested in trying it.

This would be fantastic on toast, pancakes and more.

3. Dandelion Jelly

We finally tried it out and OMG!

It’s not like Dandelions aren’t in abundance starting about now and continuing on all summer long.

It’s an easy to source recipe and tastes amazing!

It has a very light sweet floral taste that doesn’t scream dandelions when you taste it.

4. Watermelon Jelly

A sweet reminder of summer. The color, the flavor…

I love this Jelly and it make’s an awesome syrup for pancakes too.

It sort of tastes like a piece of watermelon candy in a jar.

5. Honeysuckle Jelly

This Honeysuckle jelly is absolutely amazing. It is my favorite on the list.

Easily one of our most popular recipes for summer on the site too!

Simple childhood summers in a jar!

It has a light honey, very mild taste with a floral undertone. It’s so good.

6. Hot Pepper Jelly

Not only do I love the idea of this jelly from Averie Cooks, but I absolutely love how gorgeous it is.

This would make such a beautiful gift at holiday time, but I’ll be trying this one out after my peppers grow.

7. Blood Orange Marmalade

This was one of my favorites I have tried from the Put ‘Em Up Cookbooks. SO good!

Blood Orange Marmalade goes perfect with toast, bagels or even as a marinade for meats.

And a spoonful out of the jar isn’t bad either lol

8. Pineapple Jelly

Easily one of my very favorite fruits, I wonder why I have never tried this recipe from Colleen’s Recipes or any other for that matter.

Timeto change that and maybe even play a bit with the flavor profile beyond the simple pinapple.

9. Blueberry Lemon Basil Jam

This is a favorite jam recipe in our house. A Sweet and Summer-y spread.

The flavors compliment one another so well.

Definitely worth making and enjoying!

10. Pumpkin Jam

This pumpkin jam from My Island Bistro Kitchen is similar to one I tried this Fall.

We absolutely loved it, but I want to change it up a little and make something that literally tastes like Fall.

Regardless this is awesome and her recipe is pretty simple, a good one for sure!
