Eat Real Fest Recap

WOW, we had such a blast at the Eat Real Festival this year! We teamed up with some favorite local artisans and put our jam in some pretty yummy situations.┬áCurious about the appearances our jams made? We’re glad you asked!


1. Our lovely jam stand where we were sampling all of our ERF flavors! We met some great new friends and had a blast talking jam all day.

2. Saturday’s Craft Collaboration with Starter Bakery. Yep, that’s our Blood Orange-Hibiscus Marmalade and Meyer Lemon-Blood Orange Marmalade with Rose Geranium in two different Kouign Aman.

3. Sunday’s Craft Collaboration with Mike the Bejkr. Three different breads, three different jams. Kamut bread with Early Girl Tomato Jam. Farro Bread with Peacotum Jam. Pain Biologique with Strawberry-Pluot Jam. To say Mike’s bread is our favorite is an understatement!

Other fun things we did: Rachel gave a stone fruit talk with Fran of Blossom Bluff and Michele Polzine, and served our Damson Jam spooned over peach ice cream. And our marmalade was incorporated into a yummy cocktail!

Can’t wait until next year!

Eat Real Fest 2011

Our favorite time of the year is here – Eat Real Fest! We are SO excited to spend the weekend demoing, offering craft collaborations with some of our favorite artisan food makers, selling jam, and eating.

We’ll be represented at Eat Real Fest on Friday night through a jam cocktail – our Bergamot Marmalade to be more specific! Be sure to check out the Jam Bar at 4pm to try for yourself.

On Saturday, the Blue Chair Fruit team will be sampling and selling our jams all day. For a limited time starting at 11am, our craft collaboration with Starter Bakery will be available: jam and croissants! These are sure to go quickly, so show up early! And at 2pm, Rachel will be demoing cooking with jam, pairing with Blossom Bluff (who gives us our favorite stone fruit) and pastry chef Michele Polzine.

Sunday holds more goodies, and we’re so excited to pair up with our favorite bread maker, Mike the Bejkr. We LOVE his bread and can’t wait to pair it with our jam. This offering starts at 1:30pm, and you won’t want to miss it! Of course, we’ll be offering our favorite jams for sale on Sunday as well.

We’ll even be debuting a special new jam this weekend made from the mystery fruit posted below. We’re crazy for its summery flavor. Curious about what it is? You’ll have to come by Eat Real Fest to find out!
