This time of the year I think of Jam and Jelly with all that nice fresh fruit.   I  recently tried  a couple great products  from Blue Ridge Jams. Blue Ridge Jams has over 200 varieties of specialty food products including fruit jams, jelly, pickles and a number of other products.

IMG_1234Blue Ridge Jams makes their products in small batches using only fresh fruit and vegetables, pure cane sugar and only the finest ingredients. They are located in North Carolina and have been making great tasting products since 1961.

I love this Black n’ Blue Preserves from Blue Ridge Jams. It has Blackberries, Black Raspberries, and Blueberries in a preserve that is like nothing I have ever tasted. My family might be a bit different but I love jam on french toast and grilled cheese sandwiches.  I remember growing up and mom would make them for lunch.  I used the Black n’ Blue Preserves on my french toast recently and it was great.  It’s good on English Muffins too!

IMG_1235The next thing I tried from Blue Ridge Jams is the Cherry Pecan Conserve. Yummy is all I can say.  I loved this on top of vanilla bean ice cream.  It was so good. This is made with cherries, pineapple, and pecans. I think it would be yummy on french toast or waffles too.

The finely item I tried was Jalapeno Strawberry Jelly.  I was a bit unsure about this one, it is  a is a sweet pepper jelly with a strawberry twist, the spicy flavor.  I decided to use it on Chicken that we were grilling one night as a glaze and it was delicious.  I was so happy that I tried it.  We have used it a couple times like that.
