Since 1982, American Spoon has been preserving exquisite locally grown fruit in their Petoskey, MI, kitchen. After all these years, their crew of skilled cooks still prepares fruits by hand and cooks them with care using wooden paddles and small-batch copper kettles. They also still work directly with a dedicated group of Michigan farmers who grow the varieties of fruits they love: varieties bred over generations specifically for their unparalleled taste and unique character.
In addition to sharing a favorite table utensil, Big Spoon Roasters and American Spoon share an unwavering dedication to ingredient integrity, singular flavor, and relationship-based sustainable sourcing practices.
This month’s featured jam, Damson Plum Preserves highlights the naturally tart flavor of the tiny plum variety. It’s judiciously sweetened to create a perfectly balanced flavor that will keep you coming back for more. We love it drizzled over pancakes, swirled into yogurt, or applied generously to a bagel with our Peanut Butter with Wildflower honey.
