May Featured Jam - American Spoon Apricot Jam
Apricots, Sugar, Orange Juice, Honey, Lemon Juice, Pectin, Orange Blossom Water (Bitter Orange Blossoms, Water).
American Spoon's Apricot Jam is a quintessential summer spread. Delightfully sweet, bright, and packed with gorgeous stone fruit and citrus flavor, it reminds us of laughter-filled park picnics, barefoot walks through warm grass, and sun-kissed skin: the ideal May day. We love it spread generously on crusty bread, swirled into homemade baked goods, or as the perfect topping for vanilla ice cream.
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. Their Apricot Jam, made from crushed apricots grown on Michigan's Leelanau Peninsula and accented with just a splash of orange juice, honey, and orange blossom water, is one of our very favorites.
