Jam ~ Handmade, Small Batch, Blenheim Apricot
Our Blenheim Apricot Jam: This is the jam that started it all in 2002. Food & Wine magazine wrote in the February 2007 issue, "simply the best jam we've ever tasted." This exquisite organic jam has a ripe, intense apricot flavor with a silky smooth consistency since pectin is never used to firm it up. There is no other apricot jam like it in the world. This jam is made every July from fresh fruit picked up directly from Van Dyke Ranch -- our only supplier for organic Blenheim apricots and one of the last surviving Blenheim orchards left in the Bay Area.
Blenheim Apricot & Almond: One of our favorite summer desserts to make is an apricot galette with frangipane. Almonds and apricots pair so well together, it is a wonder it took us so long to make a jam out of these two incredible ingredients. Our famous apricot jam is cooked with a small amount of our own almond paste made from organic, California almonds. The final product is a truly exquisite jam unlike anything you have ever tasted. First you taste the almonds, then the apricot takes over and at the end you have a wonderful melding of the two flavors.
Blenheim Apricot & Bing Cherry: This jam is handmade in small batch from freshly-picked Santa Clara Valley Blenheim Apricots and blended together with Bing Cherries. The flavor is exquisite - first you taste the apricot and then the bing cherry washes over your tongue and lingers. This is fantastic with cheese, as a topping on ice cream and cheese cake. You can stuff crepes with it, mix it into your yogurt or simply eat with with a spoon. The possibilities are endless...
