Week 16: Black Raspberry Jam

20 Apr

When Andrew and I went to Portland, ME last weekend, we stopped at Stonewall Kitchen. They offer a ton of samples to try, so its fun to walk around the store tasting different jams and crackers, chocolates and breads. They also have really cool kitchen appliances, like a little spatula – which reminded me of my mom and sister and the Case of the Missing Little Spatula 🙂 – and a banana slicer. With my purchase, I got a free sample of their seedless black raspberry jam.

I love toast and I love it with grape jelly. I’ve tried strawberry jam and I didn’t like it very much, I think mostly because of the seeds, so I was glad that this free sample was seedless.

The Stonewall Kitchen website offers a brief description of the jam:

This award-winning jam takes black raspberries to the next level. Notable winner in the category of Outstanding Jam/Sweet Topping at the International Fancy Food Show, Stonewall Kitchen Black Raspberry Jam is a truly exceptional jam bursting with the juicy flavor of ripened black raspberries. Spoon black raspberry jam onto all your favorite breakfast breads. Use as a perfect complement to roasted chicken or pork for your next outdoor concert picnic.

I broke out some bread from When Pigs Fly, which has amazing bread and is conveniently located just down the street from my house. I toasted it and spread on a generous helping of the jam.

It was pretty darn good. Not as good as my grape, but pretty tasty 🙂 It was sweet without being too sweet and was definitely a nice addition to my morning toast. Maybe next I’ll try their Wild Maine Blueberry Jam – sounds good doesn’t it?!?

    I LOVE this!! I love Stonewall Kitchen. I have a jar of Lemon Pear Marmalade in the refrige. Sounds interesting, doesn’t it? And, of course, I LOVE my baby spatula!
