Apricot Lemon

Ingredients
Apricots, Cane Sugar, Lemon Juice, Lemon Zest, Fruit Pectin

One of the things we love most about jam is its ability to capture the seasons -- not just by preserving fruit at the height of ripeness, but also by harnessing and intensifying its flavor. This is especially true of this month's Featured Jam, Apricot Lemon, from Carlton, OR-based Republic of Jam. Owner Angie Holt and her team slow cook every small batch using local ingredients, fruit pectin, and half the sugar of traditional recipes, allowing the maximum inherent flavor of the fruit to shine.

In this jam, the sweet and tart flavor of apricot is balanced by bright bursts of lemon and rounded with just enough sugar to create a smooth finish. Perfect in a granola bowl packed with fresh seasonal fruit and a heaping spoonful of our nut butter, this jam offers a taste of the warm sun and rich soil of Oregon's iconic Willamette Valley where Republic of Jam is located.

Insider Tip: Republic of Jam's understanding of how to coax a startling amount of flavor out of a few stunning ingredients is on display at their retail location and tasting room. Located right in the middle of the Oregon wine country, the shop attracts locals and tourists alike to take a break from wine tasting and try their incredible variety of jams (including Good Food Award winning Marionberry Espresso). If you're ever in the area, it's a must visit.

We are so thrilled to offer Republic of Jam Apricot Lemon as our May 2018 Featured Jam. It is available via our web shop a la carte or in recommended PB&J and AB&J pairing while supplies last.

Peanut Cashew

Ingredients
Peanuts, Cashews, Wildflower Honey, Sea Salt

Our cashews are lightly toasted to a golden brown, preserving their delicately sweet flavor, which balances perfectly with our fresh-roasted peanuts, honey, and sea salt.

Technically the seed of the tropical cashew apple, cashews are native to Brazil and have been traded internationally since the 16th Century.  Nutritionally, cashews offer heart-healthy monounsaturated fats; copper, which helps our cells produce energy; and magnesium, a mineral that is crucial for nerve health, muscle cell function, and bone health.
