Another great week at the Meet! We are always thrilled when we get to spend a day out in the Sun with Venice Folks and talk about good food done right. This past weekend was no exception as we got deep into conversation with customers about food, in between bites of delicious cookies and jams of course. Speaking of jams, once again we debuted our newest jams of the season!
This jam calls out for a celebration. Our Champelone jam marries the sweetness of summer melons with the sparkle of our favorite drink, Champagne! We can’t stop eating it paired with proscuitto and creamy cheeses. Made with Sugar Cube Melons from Weiser Family Farms, Raw Cane Sugar, Meyer Lemon from Garcia’s Orchards, Champagne and apple it is hard to put down.
This past weekend at the Meet the name of the game was Jam Tasting! We had all our flavors on parade and people were more than happy to get a little sticky. In addition to our Lemonilla Marmalade and Strawsilberry Jam that were a hit at the May Meet, we debuted three new jams! After being wiped out of our stock at the Meet, we spent this week whipping up more small batch jams using fresh produce from our favorite farmers at the Santa Monica Farmers Market just for you!
As usual, with the debut of new jams we have a JAM GIVEAWAY. Leave a comment about a memory involving jam and vote for one of the two new flavors below. Sunday we will draw a winner! Happy winning!
I am excited to announce our first seasonal jam at Red Bread. Strawsilberry Jam! Made with huge organic strawberries, fresh basil and lemon from the Santa Monica Farmer’s Market. This bright jam is sweetened only with organic cane sugar and is the perfect treat on our Roasted Garlic Loaf, stirred into yogurt or sinfully heaped on a spoon. We have already sold out the first batch to rave reviews! Order yours here. Also enter to win a FREE JAR of Strawsilberry Jam by leaving a comment on this blog. A winner will be picked Sunday, normal Red Bread Shipping restrictions do not apply to this contest all US Citizens may enter. Let the Jamming begin!
I find Rhubarb to be intoxicating. Rarely do you get to have it on its own as it is often paired with fruit, most famously strawberries. It has such a short season, made shorter by the fact that no one I asked could agree…the whole foods produce manager even told me it wasn’t in season though I had some from the farmers market in my bike basket! So I recommend when you see it snatch it up, regardless of the chatter. And if you want to keep it for longer than its little window, JAM it!
