Blood Oranges in the Kitchen

We love the riot of color introduced into our kitchen by the presence of blood oranges.
The almost-black red of Moro blood oranges is a favorite, staining every surface a faint pink.

We are, of course, making Blood Orange-Hibiscus Marmalade for our retail clients to sell (and a little bit for you, too). Yum!

A Blue Chair Fruit Valentine!

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner — and we’ve gathered our tastiest preserves and favorite lovey-dovey fruit puns into a thoughtful and whimsical Valentine’s Day Trio!

Also included to sweeten the deal is a Valentine’s Day book-card, “The Fruits of Our Love,” hand designed by Blue Chair Fruit’s Kate! This little card elucidates your love for your Valentine, employing romantic fruit witticisms highlighting each included flavor, of course! Each Valentine’s Day Trio arrives with this card in its own red envelope, tied on with a blue bow; we’ve even stamped a petite red heart onto our signature blue chair wrapping paper.

Happy Valentine’s Day from the Blue Chair Fruit team!

New Summery Flavors!

Alright, time for us to fess up: We’ve been a bit sneaky and squirreled away two of our favorite summer flavors to enjoy during the winter. Curious about what they are?

New Flavor: Apricot-Orange Jam

Our thoroughly luscious Apricot-Orange Jam, full of this beloved summer fruit, finds its effervescent sunny flavor highlighted by slender slices of orange rind. A true delight on toast or in a PBJ, or used as a pork glaze if you’re feeling intrepid.

New Flavor: White Cherry Marmalade

Yowza, eating this marmalade is like tossing a handful of confetti into your morning! Our White Cherry Marmalade is full of itty bitty lemon rinds, which contrast beautifully with the rotund whole cherries throughout. A dash of almond extract accentuates the springy, warm flavor of this summer marmalade!
