There's nothing like the taste of homemade jam. Is it the sweetness? The color? The love that goes into it? I think it's all of the above but there really isn't anything like a warm buttered toast slathered with grandma's jam.
Here on the farm, our kids are lucky enough to have a grandma who makes a mean jam and our customers are lucky enough to be able to get it at our farm store. Grandma, aka. Bonnie, uses only fruit from our farm or from Alyson's Orchard just up the hill, making it a deliciously sweet local product. This year there has been a bumper crop of nearly all of the fruits that go into her concoctions. My ultimate favorite is the peach jam made with fresh peaches from Alyson's Orchard.
If you haven't tried any of Grandma's jams, you're in for a treat! With flavors like three berry, peach, apricot, damson plum, apple pie, peach pepper, strawberry, blueberry, and raspberry, there's something to please just about anyone with a sweet tooth. On Saturdays in our farm store you can sample most of the jams before buying, so come on in for a taste!
