We Love Jam
Apricot: This is the jam that started it all. We made it for the first time in July 2002 using fruit from our backyard tree. For many years this was a summer hobby because friends and family loved it so much. After receiving thousands of emails from people around the world wanting to buy it, we decided to start a jam business with absolutely no prior business or food manufacturing experience (yes we were crazy, but that is another story). This exquisite jam has a ripe, intense apricot flavor with a silky smooth consistency since we never use pectin to firm up our jam or marmalade. Our apricot jam has a looser consistency than store bought, pectin-laced apricot jam.
This is a very early jam we made before we started as a company. In 2002, we discovered a swath of wild blackberry bushes up in Tilden park in the Berkeley hills and picked about two grocery bags full. Back at home we cooked them up with a touch a vanilla and it was a huge hit with our friends and family. The blackberry seeds have not been removed because research has shown seeds to be packed with healthful compounds. So just like quinoa, chia, sesame seeds - blackberry seeds are very good for you!
