Other People’s Preserve is my opportunity to shine a spotlight on some of the very delicious jams, pickles, and condiments being made by dedicated professionals. If you see one of these products out in the wild, consider picking up a jar, tub, or bottle!
We Love Jam’s Blenheim Apricot Jam is one of the reasons I started canning as an adult. Back in the days when I was still working for the now long-defunct Slashfood, the folks at We Love Jam sent me a jar of their signature apricot jam in the hopes of getting some coverage.
Though I’d grown up with jars of homemade blueberry, blackberry, and plum preserves in the fridge, I wasn’t familiar the gloriousness of handmade apricot jam. However, I was an immediate convert. I wrote a glowing review and illustrated it with a terrible photograph (thankfully, my photography skills have improved some since those days).
Since then, apricot jam has become one of my staple homemade preserves. I get a half bushel of apricot seconds nearly every summer and turn the into jam, butter, bbq sauce, and halves in honey.
Last spring, thanks to Maggie at Eat Boutique, I found myself in possession of half a jar of We Love Jam’s Apricot once again. I was reminded that while my apricot products are good, there is something unique about the Blenheim and the jam it becomes. At $10 for a 9 ounce jar, it’s a worthy splurge for your favorite apricot lover (their other flavors are also delicious, but this one will always be my favorite).
Disclosure: I wound up with a half empty jar of this jam after an Eat Boutique tasting event last spring. I didn’t pay for it, but all opinions expressed here are entirely my own.
