What do so with plum and star anise jam?

I decided to make a recipe for a spiced jam I found online with the beautiful italian plums I picked from a friend's orchard. It had italian plums, honey, a little lemon juice, cloves, star anise and a few other things.... well after cooking and processing the jam the star anise flavor is like a whollop with plum and honey after tastes. The origional plan was to put it into breads with nuts and other things around the holidays, but it's such a strong flavor there is no way that is going to happen. What do I do with it now? I have like 12 jars of this stuff!

I'm thinking pork shoulder to make a kind of chinese flavor? But what else?
