blenheim apricot jam
with almond essence
Royal Blenheim apricots and delicate almond essence come together to create a seductively smooth + thick jam.
All apricots are not created equal. The Royal Blenheim apricot could quite literally be called the king of apricots, boasting an intense simultaneously sweet + tangy flavor, far superior to other apricots. Despite its renown, the Royal Blenheim has steadily been in decline, supplanted by imports or other varietals that transport better. Ours come from a small family farm in Winters, CA that is not certified organic, but follows the same practices. It is sustainable, does not spray or use pesticides of any sort (instead it uses beneficial insects) and uses organic composts.
Our organic almond extract is from Turkey + Pakistan, intensifying the earthy sweetness naturally found in the apricot, and creating an addictive flavor combination.
Rose Owens, Cheese Department Head at Bi-Rite 18th, says, "the pudgy quality of the sweet and salty [Gorgonzola Dolce] is matched perfectly with the tangy and bright Blenheim apricot." This jam is also delicious in Jam Blossoms!
