Well, today its official! The first batch of this years Strawberry Jam Flavors are online via my Etsy Store!
Sugar Free Strawberry Jam
Strawberry Lavender Jam
Strawberry Basil Jam
Red Wine Strawberry Syrup
All the berries are hand picked by yours truly! My my how it is by far my favorite thing to do in this world...
We will be producing Strawberries for about another month or so, and I will have a new batch available every week until the end of May (cross your fingers).
Then it's on to the Blues! We will be producing all the same flavors of Blueberries as we did last year, with the addition of Blueberry Lavender Jam.
Blueberry Basil Jam
Blueberry Lemon Jam
Suger Free Blueberry Jam
One change in the labels, last year I had the state's abbreviation in the title of the jam from where the fruit was harvested from. Same concept, I have just moved it to where the ingredients are listed.
I feel its terribly important for you to know where your food comes from! And since we have many growers besides here in Louisiana- it may come from our farm in Mississippi, Alabama, or wherever we find ourselves traveling through.
Note from the fields: I have a lot of time to myself while I am picking. Everyone asks me why on earth do I insist on doing this myself, and why I hardly ever bring help. Well honestly its my quiet time! I can hear myself think so much more clearer out there. I also take the time to notice the snap of the stem when the strawberry is released from the plant. A sound that goes right up there with angels singing.
Thanks to everyone that made 2010 such a success and I am thrilled to be going full throttle into our 2nd season!
Here is the link to order yours today: http://www.etsy.com/shop/FeedMeEatPretty
PS: If you are thinking that you may want to give these early Spring flavors as gifts for Christmas please contact me asap to pre-order. I produce based on season and once a flavor is gone...well its gone. If you were one of my wonderful customers that ordered the Fall/Winter Citrus flavors in bulk for gifts you already know that we will sell out well before Christmas!
But, if you pre-order we can make sure its produced and tucked away safely JUST FOR YOU! I can even tie a card on with some rather adorable ribbon.
Thanks again, and I am looking forward to ensuring that you are Eating Pretty in 2011.
