Someone gave me a jar of homemade mint jelly. We don't typically eat lamb - Any suggestions for using it?

Or add it to icing and frost some sugar cookies with it --maybe then sprinkling on some crushed candy canes. HO HO HO!

This is a classic that appears this time of year at potluck office parties.

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.

Stir a teaspoon into a tall glass of iced tea. Or a cocktail with gin and sparkling water and a wedge of cucumber.

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.

In a pinch, add it to smoothies.

Works with chicken! Not beef products though.

You could uses it as a filling for Linzer torte or thimbprint cookies

I've seen people put it on top of cream cheese on crackers.
