To mix things up a bit, rather than the standard grape, apple, peach, plum, apricot and strawberry versions of jam, jelly and preserves - try different recipes offered at your market.
You may find some new favorites. Cherry preserves is absolutely awesome, as are fig and pear preserves. The blackberry and blueberry are also quite stunning where flavor goes.

Recipe for English Crumpets
1/4 cup of water
Grease about one-half dozen crumpet rings OR spray with non stick cooking spray. Begin preparing the recipe by scalding the milk, water and sugar; you can use your microwave for this purpose if you wish, or the stove top method.
Cool the scaled milk to lukewarm and then sprinkle the package of yeast over the milk. This will need to sit for a minimum of five minutes; the mixture is ready when the yeast appears softened. Stir this mixture gently after the yeast softens.
Add this mixture to the following that has been combined in a separate bowl: 1 beaten egg, 1/2 teaspoon of table salt, and the melted margarine.
Next, add the flour and beat by hand until no lumps remain. Pour batter into the crumpet rings and bake until golden brown - or you can cook on the stove top.
As to the addition of the margarine, you can opt for butter if you wish because butter is a key ingredient in traditional crumpet recipes - and the amount is very small. We do not recommend the reduced fat margarine or spreads for this recipe.
