Market Flavors – September 18/19

Lots of excitement around here with the cookbook tour beginning next week. And, in the meantime, we’re cooking up some of our favorite late summer flavors.

Tomato jam lovers: Your patience has been rewarded. We will be bringing our much-requested Spiced Tomato-Bourbon Conserve to the farmers’ markets this weekend! If you covet a jar or two and can make it to the market this weekend, we’d recommend doing so — this flavor goes fast.

All markets (Oakland: Grand Lake 9/18, Temescal 9/19; Noe Valley 9/18, Palo Alto 9/19): Spiced Tomato-Bourbon Conserve, English Marmalade, Mariposa Plum Jam, Yellow Grapefruit Marmalade, Early Summer Peach Jam, Meyer Lemon-Pink Grapefruit Marmalade, Black Mission Fig Jam

Plus: The Blue Chair Jam Cookbook named one of the 6 best cookbooks of the fall season in Christian Science Monitor, with a really great review!
