Like any other sweet spread, we would like to say jam tastes good on just about everything. On a slice of bread, on a hot scone, in a bowl of oatmeal and even with a savoury meal like a grilled cheese sandwich.

Either way, homemade jam — whether made from blueberries or strawberries or something citrus — also cuts down on additives, sugar and overall ingredients in general. In fact, a serving of Strawberry Jam by Smuckers has about 11 grams of sugar (fruit and added sugar).

But to keep things healthier and as a way for us to experiment with jam going into the fall, this week, we rounded up 28 of our favourite jam recipes from around the web. We have recipes without sugar, recipes with booze and recipes that have fun with all kinds of fruits like mango, kiwi and watermelon (yes, watermelon jam!).
