Eat Boutique Favorite Jam Box Giveaway

If you’ve been reading this site for any length of time, you’re probably already familiar with Eat Boutique. It’s a wonderful little company based out of the Boston area that carefully sorts through the ever-growing world of artisanal foods and culls the very best ones for inclusion in their gift boxes.

In the past, they’ve done just one box per season, but for the upcoming holidays, they’ve created seven different themed boxes, so that you can find the right thing for the many different people on your gift list.

My current favorite is (there will be no surprise here) the Jam Gift Box. It features four different preserves from some of the country’s best jam makers (the Blenheim Apricot Jam from We Love Jam is one of the delicious jams I’ve ever tasted).

Happily, the Eat Boutique crew have offered up one of these Jam Gift Boxes  to give away to a Food in Jars reader. If you want a chance at it, here’s what to do…

  1. To enter the giveaway, leave a comment on this post and share a homemade gift you’re giving to a friend or family member this season.
  2. Comments will close at 11:59 pm eastern time on Saturday, December 3, 2011. Winner will be chosen at random (using and will be posted to the blog on Sunday, December 4, 2011.
  3. Giveaway is open to U.S. residents only (apologies to my more far-flung readers).
  4. One entry/comment per person, please.

Disclosure: Eat Boutique has provided the gift box I’m giving away. I didn’t receive anyAs always, my opinions are still all my own. It’s a good product and I’m happy to be able to share it with you guys.

    Mmm! Jams! Sounds like an awesome giveaway! Thank you.

    We’re trying to make as much as we possibly can this year. Already I’ve got 9 12oz jars of strawberry syrup to pair with pancake mix. Then I would love to experiment with some flavored vinegars. On the not food front, we’re making wristwarmers and ornaments.

    for years our grandma laura made home made caramels, individualy wrapped, given to each family member so no one had to share. after she passed away no one has even attempted to re-create her special reciepe even though we all miss them and talk about the “good ol days” every year.

    this year i have decided to try and recreate this memory for everyone..i’m 2 trial batches in and have yet to reach the perfect mix…but, i will get it, hopefully just in time for christmas.

This year I am adding some canned yummies! I just picked up a case of pink lady apples (YAY for awesome sales making them among the cheapest of apples this week!) and am making an apple sauce put into my baskets! I’m so very excited!

    Concord grape jam & pomegranate jelly – both of which are family affairs. The grapes and pomegranates are on family property where my sister lives, so she tends the fruit. My mom, my sister & I gather the fruit and then we make the jam & jelly. My sister gets adventurous and makes other things as well. The pom jelly is always a big hit!
