Eat Boutique Favorite Jam Box Giveaway

November 29, 2011

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).

  • What a great giveaway! We’re giving away a combination of canned treats, home-brewed beer and handmade knits this year. Lots of work, but such pleasure putting it all together.

  • 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.
    Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

  • I’d love to win this! I’m planning on giving assortments of jams to various friends this holiday season. The latest one I’ve made is lemongrass vanilla jelly….

  • This holiday season I will be gifting apple butter (made especially with my grandmother in mind) along with strawberry rubarb jam (both of which I found growing in the backyard of the house I bought last christmas) and lots and lots of canned tomatos.

  • You all have such wonderful sounding gifts that I’m a little embarrassed to just be giving my stuffed pepper soup (made with my canned tomatoes and frozen peppers from my garden.) I’ll be including a fresh loaf of homemade garlic bread with that!

  • Crocheted fingerless gloves to all the ladies this year! Gave a couple last year and everybody wanted them so this year everybody gets them.

  • 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.

  • I make gift baskets every year, filled with baked goodies! Cardamon bread, sugar cookies, spiced nuts, almond toffee, and homemade peppermint marshmallows! 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!

  • I am giving jars of homemade pizza sauce, grape jam, strawberry jam, strawberry-banana jam, both apple & pear butters & bottles of homemade vanilla. There are also a few sewing projects/gifts thrown in there too.

  • I have been in a jam making frenzy this year, some of the goodies I am giving for Christmas gifts this year are Cranberry Pear Lemon Jam, Ginger Peach and Pear Jam, Blackbarb Jam, Autumn Fruit Jam, and Jumbleberry Jam.

  • I make hundreds of cookies every year that I give to neighbors, our local library, letter carrier, etc. It’s a tradition started by my mother when I was a child.

  • I’m giving jam to several people (of course), your vanilla-pear jam recipe to be exact. And I’m knitting a hat for my mom and headband for my sister.

  • I am sharing a box of jam (blueberry, strawberry or mixed berry) and my award winning biscotti (says my husband) with a mini box of James’ mint sticks (my fave!)

  • I’m giving away lots of jam! Also throwing some homemade tomato sauce in there for my mom by special request! The trickiest thing for me is always figuring out how to pack a few cases of jam into my suitcase for the flight!

  • Cranberry Apple jam (your recipe – which everyone loved last year), Pear Vanilla Syrup, Celery Salt & Pizza Seasoning mix

  • My two-year-olds made painted and sequined tree ornaments, I am making hand painted peg people for my girls, and homemade baked goods (cookies, bread, etc) for friends and family. 🙂

  • 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!

  • I’m giving my Oregon strawberry jam, maple-rosemary glazed walnuts, lemon curd…and apple butter if I get it made! But now I want to read all 631 comments (!) for more ideas!

  • I made lots of condiments this year (jam, salsa, ketchup, and relish) so I like to construct a basket of goodies around each one.

  • I give jam every year. Some years I wrap them with homemade bread, other years it may be muffins. Always a gift basket of some sort with jam.

  • Wow – that’s a lot of responses!

    We’re planning to give a small jar of chutney and some homemade crackers this year.
