Berries being prepared for jam.

We love this time of year when the local farm stands start selling their fresh fruits and vegetables.  The harbinger of what is to come are the local strawberries.

Red ripe and juicy these berries are the perfect ingredient in some of our guests’ favorite jams, which very frequently we use as toppings on our sweet entrees such as our Almond Buttermilk Pancakes and Cinnamon Sour Cream Waffles.  During the winter months we make do with strawberries from other areas of the country, often having to macerate them in order to bring out more of the strawberry flavor.  Not so with these beauties!  They are deep red, juicy and sweet and are fantastic just on their own on top of yogurt.

We also love this time of year because we get to refill the “curio” with a new batch of our homemade jams, fruit butters and chutneys.  Our popular S/B/C which is a delicious blend of strawberries, blueberries and cinnamon, returns as does our Triple Berry and Blueberry Vanilla.  A new recipe was created this season – 5 Willard Place, which is our own recipe of strawberry, nectarine, plum and a touch of vanilla.  We think our guests are really going to love this one!

Try 4 of our most popular jams!

We also realize that a lot of folks have a tough time choosing from our wide selection.  So we’ve put together a Taster sampler of 4 4-ounce jars of our most popular jams: Triple Berry (strawberry, raspberry, blueberry), 5 Willard Place (Strawberry, Plum, and Nectarine), Blueberry Vanilla, and our S/B/C Jam (Strawberry, Blueberry, and Cinnamon).  A great value and a great way to sample our jams.  To order please email us.

So next, sweet cherries!
