Hear ye, hear ye: Longtime Food52er MrsWheelbarrow has come out with a beautiful new cookbook! All week long, she will be sharing recipes from Mrs. Wheelbarrow's Practical Pantry and giving us new ways to use up the preserves in our cupboards. And we're giving away a copy each day -- so you can finally get over your fear of preserving.

Today: A week full of sweet recipes and resourceful tips from Mrs. Wheelbarrow.

To celebrate the launch of her new cookbook, we were eager to let Cathy Barrow -- a.k.a. Mrs. Wheelbarrow -- act as our guest editor this week and share some of her favorite ways to use up those jars of jam you're bound to have hanging around your kitchen.

More: Read up on Mrs. Wheelbarrow's 9 essential tools for pickling and preserving. 

Whether you make all your jam yourself or you like to leave it to the professionals, tuck it into these sweet recipes, all of which are handy for holiday entertaining. And if you're a little confused by what makes a jam a jam and a preserve a preserve, Cathy has that explanation covered
