American Spoon Rubel Blueberry Preserves
Rubel Blueberries, Sugar, Lime Juice
Whether you love or hate it, summer is objectively wonderful for one thing—its berries. Our August featured jam, American Spoon Rubel Blueberry Preserves, highlights one of our favorites, the blueberry, in all its sweet, juicy glory. Combining fresh Rubel blueberries (a smaller variety with a deeper berry flavor) grown alongside the Michigan shorelines, a bit of sugar, and lime juice, this intentionally simple jam is complex, thick, and absolutely delectable. We love it spread on lemon cake, swirled into oats, or filling homemade “pop tarts” alongside our Peanut Pecan or Chocolate Sea Salt Almond Butter.
Please note—due to a product name shift on behalf of American Spoon, upcoming shipments of this jam will contain labels reading “Heirloom Blueberry Preserves” rather than “Rubel Blueberry Preserves.” Rest assured, it’s still the same delectable jam crafted with intentional ingredients, just with a slightly different name!
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—those bred over generations specifically for their unparalleled taste and unique character.
