In a jam for Valentine’s Day?

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Liz Kennard Butcher who makes and sells her very unique jams and preserves.  Liz presented me with the beautiful basket shown above and this morning I overdosed on jam and toast while tasting these quite unusual products.  I had three large jars and four “sample-size” jars.  Let me tell you about them.

First I tried the JC Schmokin Cherry—it actually looks like cherry pie filling but it’s tasty and made a bit spicy by adding hot, roasted chilis. Next I tasted the French Kissed—which is like a strawberry puree with real vanilla bean and white chocolate. I also tried the Bogle Merlot/Blackberry.  This one really had the flavor of the wine—maybe a bit too strong for me. And lastly, I tried the Dirty Diana — you gotta love the name!  This was a mix of Montmorency Cherries, passion fruit rum and nutmeg — I may have liked this one best.
To get yourself out of a jam and into some jam for your Valentine go to butchersbunches.com to see the full line of products.  Made locally here in Utah these items make fun, unusual and tasty gifts.
