Fruit Watch 10/5: Black Figs, Concord Grapes, Damsons & Elephant Heart Plums

Black FigsWow – this year’s Black Mission Figs just keep getting better and better! We made one of the best fig jams we’ve ever tasted with them recently, and just posted it in our boutique: Black Fig Jam with Almond, Citron & Clove. This is one fig jam that’s not to be missed!

Concord Grapes are among the all-time best jam fruits, though most of us know them only in Concord grape jelly from the supermarket. Blue Chair Fruit loves old-fashioned Concord grape pie, and our Concord grape jams capture the same spirit! When making jam with theseĀ  flavorful grapes, we leave the skins in, giving the jam a very special texture and brilliant flavor. Look for our first Concord jams of the season soon!

Also this week, we continue to make the most of our recent crop of damsons. We are excited for our Concord Grape & Damson Jam, which we will be releasing by next Tuesday. Also in the next few days is our final batch of Elephant Heart plums, which we are excited to make into an extra-special early October jam. Stay tuned for flavor details; to learn of new flavors as we post them, please follow us on Twitter at the link below!
