Strawberry Kiwi Jam? Buy The Big Jar

When you come across strawberry kiwi jam for sale, it will often come in jars of multiple sizes. You might want to buy a small jar if you're not sure whether you'll like the jam, and if you're unable to sample it first. But if you know you like strawberry kiwi jam, then you should strongly consider just buying the larger jar of 8 oz. strawberry kiwi jam. Here are some reasons why the big jar is usually the better buy.

You'll get a better value by volume

Often, you'll pay less per ounce when you buy 8 ounces of jam, versus two or four ounces. Every vendor prices their products differently, of course. But you will often get a lot more jam for just a little more money, making the larger jar a better value.

Strawberry kiwi jam lasts a long time

Jam is made with a lot of sugar, and sugar is a natural preservative. Strawberry kiwi jam tends to have a hint of tartness which comes both from the kiwis and sometimes also from a small amount of citric acid that is added to the jam, which is also a preservative. As such, strawberry kiwi jam tends to last a long time in your fridge. You can buy a larger jar and keep it around for a while and not worry about it spoiling before you get around to using it.

Strawberry kiwi jam can be used in various sauces and dressings

You can use this jam simply by spreading it on toast or pancakes. But it's also far more versatile than that. You can use it as a base for barbecue sauces and even salad dressings. You can even make pancake syrups using jam in combination with maple syrup and other ingredients. Recipes for these items usually require a few tablespoons of jam, at least. Having an 8-ounce jar of strawberry kiwi jam will make it easier for you to prepare these recipes without completely using up your supply.

If you come across some strawberry kiwi jam for sale, and it comes in more than one size, buy the larger size. You get a better value per ounce of product, will be better able to use the jam in various recipes, and you don't have to worry about it spoiling.
