Smaller is Better October 20 2014, 0 Comments
Prepare your heart to be thoroughly melted! Exceptionally adorable things have happened to our jam lately—namely that it has been gobbled up by some of the cutest human beings ever. See below, Fig. 1 and Fig. 2.
Fig. 1: Holman, who prefers his boysenberry jam lumpy with berries (which is great, because that's how we feel, too), and spread all over homemade pancakes.
Fig. 2: Maya! We finally got to meet our friends' gorgeous little nugget, who—as we discovered—is a BIG fan of jam. She'd been pretty fussy all afternoon, but when that Triple Crown berry-coated jam spoon touched her lips, all that changed. Parents, take note!
Wishing you a week full of cuteness and jam!
A Little More About Who We Are September 29 2014, 0 Comments
While it's true that the jam-making itself is done by one person—that would be me, Miranda!—Plum Tree Jam (like all projects worth a darn) is the result of the hard work and loving support of a community of friends and family. People like:
David! My fiancé and all around awesome dude! Here he is picking berries with me this past August. Those are Triple Crowns (you can buy jam made from those very same Triple Crowns HERE!):
My Mom, Linda! Aren't Moms the best? She's a mostly-retired Professor and much-loved lady! She's picking boysenberries (you can buy jam made from those very boysens HERE!):
Morgan & David! Our friends and neighbors who not only come berry-picking (they picked Waldo blackberries, and you can buy the jam made from those Waldos HERE!), they also provide boatloads of creative input and all around encouragement.
this is Morgan! (well, it's her hand, but you get the idea)
Jam jar sticker idea from David "idea-factory" L-P!
Cheers to you lovely people! And cheers to you, dear customers, who are now a part of all the fun and delicious goodness that is Plum Tree Jam! Thank you!
