How to use up leftover apricot jam

  • Chocolate and apricot sandwich cake
    Instead of using buttercream or cream, use apricot jam to sandwich two chocolate sponges. The tartness of the jam works well with chocolate.
  • Fruit tart glaze
    When making a fruit tart, such as a classic apple tart, apricot jam will give it a shiny finish. Warm a little jam in a pan with a splash of water then brush over the fruit, cool and put in the fridge to set.
