I found your email on the jar label of your grape and lemongrass jam, and I just wanted to drop you some lines to tell you how much I am savoring it. This jam is so tasty, I love the consistency, and the color is distinct. I received the jam as a gift from my parents, and I believe they bought it from a crafts event at the Garrison Art Center.
When I first tried the jam, I’ll be honest, I was very much on the fence – I had never tasted anything like it and my palate wasn’t exactly charmed. My father noticed my unpleasant reaction, tried it himself, and said, “No, this is very good. It’s different.” I concluded that perhaps it would be good with brie or a sharp cheese.
I then accidentally left the jam at my parents’ house and didn’t realize until I received it in the mail from my mother. This jam was persistent. I stuck it in the fridge, thinking that it would be one of those condiments that didn’t see the light of day much. But then one morning shortly after the jam had reentered my life, for some reason my seedless Polaner raspberry jam just didn’t seem that appealing, and I gave your jam another try. I was pleasantly surprised – it was so good spread on bread. And then with peanut butter…wow, so good! I broke out the jam on New Years Day and introduced it to a friend over brunch. She was very skeptical and didn’t believe that it could possibly taste good, given its color. I said she should give it a chance and the next thing I knew, she was eating straight from the jar.
I don’t usually provide feedback on products, much less vignettes if you will, but I had to make an exception because this jam is so delicious. Also, the inevitable is nearly upon me – the jam is almost gone. I am wondering now, do you sell this jam year round, where are you based, where do you get your ingredients from, what is your “jamming process,” do you have a website, etc. And at the very least, I wanted to extend my compliments and thank you for combining these wonderful flavors and for sharing it.
