I have never gone through jam as fast as I have with Jamtastic Jam from Rupert, VT.
We can all thank Ross Warren’s sister Lisa for encouraging him to share his delicious jam with us. Ross had been giving away his jams for years before he hopped in his car, drove his jam around the state and came home with orders for over 140 more jars.
Ross prides himself on making his jam in small batches. He told us “when you start doing BIG batch anything, the quality suffers and the tastes is never the same as something produced in a small batch, just like what you might make in your own kitchen”. We agree and appreciate Ross’s commitment to quality ingredients (and local ingredients when in season). Ross makes his jams in copper pots and tell us why: “Copper is the best conductor of heat. I can bring my fruit mixture to temperature very quickly, thereby maintaining all the nutritional values without boiling it all off. Again, it’s all about the quality of the finished product. I will settle for nothing but the best.”
We were lucky enough to get a big box of jam from Ross. He sent us Raspberry Maple Jam, Christmas Jam, Strawberry Balsamic Jam, and Hot 4 Habanero Strawberry Jam. It’s hard to choose a favorite!
I opened the jar of Christmas Jam and said “Whoa, that IS Christmas!”. My 4 year old agreed (??). Filled with cranberries, strawberries, vanilla and aromatic spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg, this jam is heartwarming. I love it when food brings back happy memories and this jam makes me think of happy Christmas parties with lots of family and friends. This is my son’s favorite jam, so he insisted that we share it with Nonna, who agrees, it’s something special.
We brought the Hot 4 Habanero Strawberry Jam to a party with friends and put it out with pretzels. The sweetness of this jam, offset by the deep heat makes it… well… Jamtastic! I look forward to using this jam as a glaze for grilled chicken over rice. What a yummy dinner.
Our Raspberry Maple Jam went fast. It was our go-to jam every morning. We had many red faced sticky hand mornings thanks to this jam. The tart raspberry blends well with the sweet maple. This jam is a nice addition to anything you have for breakfast… toast, muffins, yogurt or oatmeal. This jam is Ross’s all time best seller. One bite and you’ll know why.
Ross’s Strawberry Balsamic Jam has been reserved for Mommy only. It’s amazing. It’s grown up strawberry jam (although my two kids love it too). The freshness of the strawberries mixed with he richness of the aged balsamic is a wonderful pairing. I like it best with salty crackers or pretzels. Use this jam to make a dressing for your salad and you will want salad everyday.
