My Kid’s Kitchen

Denise Boutin opened My Kid’s Kitchen in 2007 with a goal of teaching her children where their food came from, and keeping them engaged in the farm to table process. In addition to their own large gardens they have a small orchard, honey bees, and a sugarhouse. The children have learned how to take raw food and turn it into many different things.

Denise writes: “The children help in harvesting the vegetables and fruit, updating traditional family recipes, finding new recipes, mixing ingredients and of course are great taste testers.”

We were happy to taste test jams from My Kid’s Kitchen. My family has discovered a love for rhubarb thanks to Denise’s Strawberry Rhubarb Jam. The jam is not overwhelmingly sweet and has a bit of an earthly and tart flavor from the rhubarb.

Everyone loves berries, right? How about a variety of three berries to make the perfect morning jam? Denise uses strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. This jam is a favorite of Denise’s kids (though she does mention that every jar of her delicious jam goes fast!) and my own kids. The jar did not last long at our house either. The sweet flavors will bring you right back to summer even in the middle of the winter. Yum!

I shared the Maple Pumpkin Butter with my sister in law as pumpkin is one of her favorite flavors. Here is her review:

A big fan of anything pumpkin flavor, I was excited to try this Maple Pumpkin Butter.  I spread it on an English Muffin, and absolutely loved it!  It has such a rich, smooth, pumpkin flavor and made me think I was eating a sweet bread instead of an English Muffin. You can really taste the spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg and it really is so flavorful!  I will definitely need to buy more of this!”
