Mix mint jelly with cilantro and yogurt and spoon over roasted eggplant.

Mix with strawberry jam and fill a tart, thumbprint cookies or ribbon through vanilla ice cream.

Meatballs in a slow cooker with grape jelly. Maybe using ground lamb and Mediterranean spices for the meatballs, Chopped parsley, garlic, allspice, cinnamon, cloves. And a heat element like the BBQ sauce and mint jelly instead of the grape jelly.
