Friend in Cheeses MINI Jams

FIC MINI STRAWBERRY TARRAGON made by Friend in Cheeses Jam Co. (Santa Cruz, CA) – Pure summer in a jar…Bright juicy fat ripe Seascape strawberries from the central coast of California, blended with a hint of vanilla, a dash of black pepper, and a good dose of organic tarragon…from morning toast to an afternoon ice cream, this combo is a sure fire smile generator. 

FIC MINI LAVENDER PLUM  made by Friend in Cheeses Jam Co. (Santa Cruz, CA) – Spring in Nor Cal – the air is heavy with the aroma of plum blossoms and fields of lavender. We combined the two with a field blend of several plum varietals to get the very best of the region. As this seasonal gem is released, so are the fresh spring cheeses from local goats and sheep.. the marriage of the two will keep the Nor Cal spring in your ♡ year round! 

FIC MINI PINOT CHERRIES made by Friend in Cheeses Jam Co. (Santa Cruz, CA) – The medley of dried Montmorency cherries, black pepper, citrus and Pinot Noir makes for the quintessential pairing . There is not a meat, cheese or cocktail that this baby can’t uplift. “Je ne sais quoi” quality to keep the culinary imagination on point. 

FIC MINI SMOKIN’ PADRON made by Friend in Cheeses Jam Co. (Santa Cruz, CA) – The long days of late summer: wafting aromas of wood smoke and roasting peppers bring this jam to a new place on the pantry shelf. Perfect for lazy afternoons with meats just off the grill –  a dollop of summer so the feeling will never end. 

FIC MINI PISCO PEAR made by Friend in Cheeses Jam Co. (Santa Cruz, CA) – In homage to my Grammy Emma Mae and my Peruvian brother in law Nello: the Clash of Cultures comes together in one jar. French butter pears cooked for hours with fresh nutmeg, black pepper, candied ginger and vanilla until the jam is  a thick reduced expression of everything a pear ever wanted to be..then a good dose of Pisco (the grappa of Peru) to add a fresh bright bite.

FIC MINI CHOW CHOW made by Friend in Cheeses Jam Co. (Santa Cruz, CA) – A jar of pure sunshine. The combo of dried fruits, nuts and seeds intermingled with honey, vanilla, and domestic bourbon sings – there isn’t a cheese this Chow doesn’t like. 

FIC MINI GOLDEN SAGE BERRY made by Friend in Cheeses Jam Co. (Santa Cruz, CA) – Sunshine in a jar…Golden Raspberries hint at sunset, offset by tart bright flavors of lemon & sage. A perfect pair for any summer meal.
