Stanley Plum JamMADE BY RUSSELL STREET DELI IN DETROIT, MICHIGAN
Stanley plums grown in Michigan's Lower Peninsula lend a sweet-tart balance to this thick, rich jam. It's insanely spreadable, with chewy bits of fruit, just a touch of added sugar and a bright splash of lemon juice.
Russell Street Deli sources all locally grown fruit for their house-made, preservative-free jams. A plum's a plum, you might think. But the Stanley plum is the most popular plum in Michigan, found at farm stands all across the state, prized for deep purple skin and the shock of bright yellow flesh waiting inside. They ripen in autumn, and we're so glad to be able to enjoy them in perfectly preserved form year-round.
