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 is quite literally called the king of apricots, boasting an intense simultaneously sweet + tangy flavor, far superior to other apricots. Despite its renown, the Royal Blenheim is going extinct. They bruise more easily than most other types of apricots, so grocery stores don’t want them. As a result, their market share has been in steady 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. The farm employs sustainable methods, does not spray or use pesticides of any sort (instead it uses beneficial insects) and uses organic composts.
Our organic almond extract from Turkey + Pakistan intensifies and complements the earthy sweetness naturally found in the apricot, creating an addictive flavor combination that is like an apricot frangipani tart--without the crust.
Rose Owens, former 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 front and center in Jam Blossoms cookies!
