Marmalade Watch 11/18 + Thanksgiving News

IMG_0198

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!

Fruit Watch 11/2: Pears, Quinces and Crabapples

We had a fantastic weekend up in Mendocino, and made sure to stop at The Apple Farm in Philo on the way! While there, we sampled a number of excellent varieties, and came home with some gorgeous Flemish Beauty pears, tiny red crabapples, and two types of quince. We also sampled several excellent apples, including Northern Spy, Sierra Beauty, Philo Gold, and Fuji. We love them all, and it’s so fun to taste them side by side, because they are so different from each other! We can’t wait to get going on some new flavors…
