Say “Hello” to Strawberries!

Our first jam of the season is here: Strawberry-Pink Peppercorn Jam!

The start of strawberry season is always a game of patience as we wait for the most luscious strawberries to come to market. When those strawberries hit their stride, our kitchen is transformed. There’s nothing like the sweet smell of strawberry jam cooking! These handsome red berries are resplendent on their own, and we always love to accentuate their playfulness with an exotic spice: pink peppercorns. Possessing a ton of flavor and very little heat, pink peppercorns amp up the convivial side of Spring’s first fruit. Have you been eagerly awaiting strawberries’ arrival, too? Our Strawberry-Pink Peppercorn Jam is now available online! There’s no better partner for ricotta on toast, and a spoonful or two will brighten up your morning yogurt. We promise this jam will put a spring in your step!

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!
