Blue Chair Fruit Makes Your Marmalade!

Have you ever this thought?: “Wow, I have this great idea for marmalade, but making marmalade can be a little time-consuming and expensive. Too bad I can’t have a marmalade expert make it for me…”

WELL, you are in luck!

We are pleased to announce Blue Chair Fruit’s first annual marmalade contest!

Here’s how it works:

  • You send us your fantastic idea for a marmalade flavor at We do request that the fruit(s) you suggest be readily available from local organic growers in the SF Bay area. Please put “Marmalade Contest” in the title of your email so we make sure it gets to the right place. Note: This does not need to be a complete recipe, but merely a flavor suggestion. Submissions must be received no later than Monday, January 31, 2011.
  • We will read each and every submission, confer with our resident marmalade expert Rachel Saunders, and make a decision. We will announce the winning flavor and its creator on Monday, February 7, 2011. We will make our decision based on which flavor we anticipate to be most delicious.
  • We’ll notify you, and get to work! Fruit availability will dictate when we actually produce the winning flavor, but it will be sometime in winter of this year.
  • Once we’ve created the delicious winning flavor, we’ll send you 2 jars of your creation to enjoy! We will be sure to give you credit as the flavor’s creator, and the flavor will go up for sale on our website.

Doesn’t that sound exciting?! We can’t wait to see what you have to offer!

Important reminders: Email your submission to with “Marmalade Contest” in the title of your email. Please include your real full name in your submission so we can credit you. Your submission must be received by Monday, January 31, 2011. You may submit as many flavor ideas as you like. The winner of this contest has full bragging rights to their creation, but no legal rights to the flavor Blue Chair Fruit creates.
