This is the jam that started it all! In 2009, Mary’s father-in-law, Gilbert, gave her apricots from his backyard tree. The whole family yummied up the luscious fruit. Still, the apricots kept coming. They shared the windfall with friends and neighbors. Still more apricots. Mary cooked with them, stuffing chicken breasts, making the apricot upside down cake and chocolate apricot upside down cake. The backyard tree kept producing and Gilbert continued to be generous. No one could eat all the apricots and Mary just couldn’t let them go to waste. So she taught herself how to make jam, never realizing where this project would lead.
This apricot jam goes great on a bagel or toast. Make sure to stop by our shop and try some!
