Ever-bearing strawberries with black currants and rosemary. This is a super kid friendly, eat-it-from-the-jar jam which has a great flavor for nutty, hard cheeses like aged sheep milk and cheddars. The strawberries come from Adams Berry Farm and Omar Fugaro and the blackcurrants are from Sayre fields in Hinesburg, VT.
Refrigerate after opening.
Honey sweetened preserves made without the use of added pectin allows the texture and "temperament" of each fruit to shine through. V Smiley Preserves are made in wide copper jam pans from hand cut fruit. One pot of jam produces 6-10 jars of preserves and some batches take up to 3 days to produce. Each finished jar of preserves contains about 1 lb. of fruit.
