New Marmalades!

Marmalade season is winding down, but we’ve still got a few tricks up our sleeve!

From L to R:
Meyer Lemon-Blood Orange Marmalade with Pastis
Bergamot Marmalade with Cassis
Elderberry-Orange Marmalade

Citrus may be waning, but we’re still making the most of it!

The Best of California

California is made for fruit lovers — a long growing season, moderate temperatures through winter, and a brigade of farmers and gardeners committed to nurturing heirloom fruit varieties.

Here at Blue Chair Fruit, our greatest joy is celebrating California produce by taking fruit at the peak of its season and preserving it to enjoy throughout the year. And we want to share our favorite California flavors with you!

Our California Preserves 3-Pack contains one jar each of:

  • Olallieberry Jam, made from our favorite regional blackberries
  • Meyer Lemon-Blood Orange Marmalade, highlighting the unique flavor of Meyer lemons
  • Yvette’s Plum Jam, our love song to our friend Yvette’s perfect backyard plums

We hope you love these special California fruits as much as we do!

We have been having a great time at our farmers’ markets these past few weeks, and are busy bringing on some fabulous new staff at our markets (new About Us profiles coming soon)! We are also loving Fall here at the Blue Chair Fruit kitchen, where we are in the process of making our Quince-Rose Geranium Marmalade and a pear and quince marmalade! Also in the works: a pear and dried fig conserve with rosemary and black pepper! We also just posted our phenomenally yummy Concord Grape & Vanilla Jam and our Plummy Meyer Lemon Marmalade – our very last early Fall preserves!

We will also be doing several jam and marmalade tastings around San Francisco and the East Bay over the next several days, in addition to our normal farmers’ market schedule. We will be offering our special Thanksgiving and yuletide flavors, in addition to limited-quantity flavors. For details, please see our Where to Find Us page. We hope to see you soon!
