lemon bird Handmade Jams - You can actually taste the love that goes into these jams. Amy Deaver makes them in the french tradition - small batches, only fruits at their peak of the season from local farmers enhanced by spices from around the world. The flavor combinations create savory and sweet delights. Don't limit these jams to your toast, pair them with cheeses, meats - create appetizers with them. We tried Fig with honey & cinnamon and Kumquat with Dark chocolate & Espresso. Both delicious - the latter being very decadent! Simply packaged - we just loved them.

Sunchowder's Emporia - Fresh Fruit Jams made with hand ground spices, and sugar no pectin, corn syrup or any additives. We sampled a few flavors and just loved the bright fruit flavors and interesting flavor combinations. The jam jars are nicely adorned with a paper topper reminiscent of the fabric used in your "grandma's" jam. The interesting spice in many of the jams makes them ideal for meat glazes.

Skillet Street Foods - what the heck is bacon jam?...well, it is chef joshua henderson’s invention. He starts with a big bunch of really really good bacon, renders it down...adds a bunch of spices, onions, etc..and lets it simmer for about 6 hours…gives it a quick puree, and blast chill it… bacon jam. Top off your burger, baked potato or spread and add LT! Immediate bacon satisfaction.
