Blackberry Vanilla JamMADE BY REPUBLIC OF JAM IN CARLTON, OREGON
Juicy blackberries and fresh-from-the-pod vanilla come together in perfect harmony to create this sweet, aromatic spread that reminds us of blackberry picking, without those pesky thorns. The sweet, warm flavor of vanilla makes the fruit taste that much sweeter—hey, did someone sneak a pie into this jar?
Head jam-maker Lynnette Shaw preserves local fruit using (always vegan-friendly) fruit pectin and half the sugar of traditional recipes, so the texture and flavor of perfectly ripe blackberries shine through.

This is a go-to jam for spreading on scones or croissants, but if you're the baking type, try baking it right into a batch of scones. Divide your dough in half and pat each half into a circle about 8 inches across. Spread one thickly with jam and top with the other, then gently pinch the sides closed. Cut the circle in half, and then cut each half into 4 pie-shaped wedges. Follow your recipe directions to bake.
