Extra Plum butter

As one of my christmas cookies, I made Plum pinwheels (similar)
this past christmas, and was left with a bit too much plum jam/butter. What else can I cook with it?

So this plum butter (jam? paste?) that I have is amazing. Its basically prunes + dried red currants cooked down with butter, sugar and spices and it rich and magnificent. I have already made over 100 cookies with it, and I still have a solid 1.5 cups of the paste left. I am cookied out for now, what else can I use this on?
Currently I've been putting it on goat cheese on crackers (om nom nom), but that's barely making a dent. I also don't really have much of a sweet tooth, so ways I can use it with cheese/meat would be awesome
The only think I could think of was stuffing a pork loin with the paste+ chopped nuts+ maybe an apple, but that probably won't use up more than 2-3 tablespoons, and may still be too sweet. What other savory things can this be used with? What else can I add it too? a port wine sauce?
Also, it's already 2 weeks old, and it's been in the coldest part of my fridge... any thoughts on how much longer it will last? or would freezing be a good idea?
Assume I'm an above average cook, with NYC at my disposal. I do not mind buying crazy other ingrediants to cook with this paste.
