Jam is one of those comfort foods that bring back memories of childhood peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and a much more simple time. We've found something to bring back those magically comforting thoughts: Bow Hill Organic Blueberry Jam. Each spoonful of jam is loaded with organic blueberries, preserved in sugar and bursting with late-summer juiciness, almost like a concentrated version of blueberry pie. It’ll bring a touch of summer sunshine to any day. You might even decide to make an adult PB&J and talk a walk barefoot in the grass. Don’t forget the milk!
Watching the operations of Bow Hill, you’d be forgiven for thinking the Soltes family members are lifelong pro farmers. In reality, Harley and Susan along with their kids Amelia and Wylie took over the Skagit Valley’s oldest blueberry farm (founded in 1947) less than ten years ago. Every season, the four of them harvest 60,000 pounds of organic-certified berries with the help of 25 volunteers. Guess if you picked that many berries, you’d look professional too.
Tip of the Tongue:
Obviously when it comes to jam, our stomach immediately thinks breakfast, slathered on our morning toast or mixed into our granola and yogurt. But think outside the jar, people. This blueberry jam also makes for an excellent ice cream topping or vinaigrette addition.
