Giveaway: Eat Boutique Preserves Collection

eat boutique box

Many times over the years, I’ve been asked the question, “What is your favorite thing to preserve?” Typically I hedge a little, saying something about my allegiance to seasonality or simply that there are too many delicious things in the world to preserve. However, when absolutely pressed, I’ll finally admit that there are a few jams and spreads I love best of all.

Sour cherry jam, featuring big hunks of fruit suspended in a ruby syrup. Thick, sticky tomato jam for spreading on toasted cheese sandwiches or dolloping on roasted sweet potatoes. And a long-cooked onion spread, gently caramelized and tangy with vinegar or beer.

When Maggie Battista from Eat Boutique came to me and suggested that we team up on a box, I knew immediately that I wanted it to include some of my favorites. And so we constructed a box that includes We Love Jam Tart Cherry Jam, Blue Chair Fruit Early Girl Tomato Jam, Wozz Triple Ale Onion Spread, and a signed copy of my book. And at $58 for all those goodies, it’s something of a deal for the preserves lover in your life.

Thanks to Eat Boutique, I also have one of these Preserves Collection boxes to give away to a lucky Food in Jars reader. Here’s how to enter.

    My new favorite is pickled beets – maybe not exciting for some but I love them! Beets are so good for you and i love the flavor of pickled beets in salads and as an extra veggie with a meat, potatoes, and veggie meal.

    I love canning peaches! They are so simple, my daughter (10) loves to handle the blanching and ice bath, then peeling. I love how gorgeous they all look, round sides out, filling the jar, how they look like jars of sunshine all winter long. They are sweet and simple, and always taste like summer.

    By far my favorite would be tomato jam, or maybe dilly beans, oh wait apple butter, no pickle relish ….I can’t decide!

    In my short life of canning I would have to say my favorite thing is tomato basil jam, although it is tedious with deseeding the tomatoes – it is oh so tasty when I get to eat it later!
