A friend, because she is a sweetheart and my Etsy buddy, sent me a most generous congratulatory gift upon the opening of Jiggety Pig! She had shipped to me a collection of four gourmet jams from Sunchowders Emporia on Etsy! I had long been drooling over these beautiful jars of jam, handmade in small batches by Wendy Read. So, I couldn’t believe my eyes when I opened the box and found four jars…right there in my hands…in my very own house…to enjoy!
They are, from left to right: Pineapple Tangerine Jam, Raspberry Pepper Jam, Spiced Pear Butter, and Blueberry Basil Jam.
They came so beautifully labeled and with such pretty papers covering their lids, that for a couple days I just set them in the kitchen windowsill and admired their beauty. And then I purchased a loaf of English Toasting Bread…sort of plain…not too much flavor, because I wanted the flavors of the jams to shine through. And the next day for breakfast, I had myself a little tasting feast! Oh my! The deliciousness! Such unique and fabulous flavor combinations! I really can’t say enough about the freshness and expert blending of flavors in these jams! Absolute jam perfection!
And the Raspberry Pepper Jam became a most delicious appetizer when paired with a cracker spread with some cream cheese! Yum!
