Serve the kind of food you know the story behind. – Michael Pollan
Nestled on a five-acre plot in Pittsboro, NC, Fiddlehead Farm is a food lover’s paradise. The small farm and micro-jammery owned by David & Emily Boynton have developed a devoted following for their tiny-batch hot sauces, finishing salts, and jams. They exclusively feature fruits, vegetables, and herbs grown on-site or by nearby farms. In fact, each jar of jam notes the exact farm where the fruit was sourced.
As farmer’s themselves, the Boynton’s know the labor that comes along with growing and harvesting produce. Perhaps this is why each jam is so clearly made love, craft, and the utmost respect for the integrity of the fruit.
This month’s Featured Jam, Roasted Peach Preserves, showcases peaches grown by Kalawi Farms in Eagle Springs, NC. By roasting the peaches before cooking them down in copper pots, the Boynton’s coax an intensity of peach flavor that’s hard to rival. The result is a deceptively simple jam, remarkably complex in flavor. Each jar contains over a pound of fruit!
We are so thrilled to have Fiddlehead Farm Roasted Peach Preserves as our July 2019 Featured Jam. We think these plump preserves are especially delicious over vanilla ice cream or paired with our Almond Ginger Butter for a flavorful take on a classic AB&J. They’re available now via our web shop á la carte and in recommended PB&J and AB&J pairings.
