After a three day weekend of barbequing, sunshine, and being with family and friends, we weren’t quite ready for the party to end. Much to our delight, we were welcomed back to work with a package (jam packed, pun intended!) stalked full of jelly and jam delights. With the “pop” of a jar, suddenly our long weekend was extended just a little longer. The sweetness of summer was living on.
Crofter’s Organic of Ontario, Canada is a fruit spread haven. If you enjoy a good PB&J, take your sandwich up a notch by slathering on a spoon full of their timeless yet unique flavorings. Each spread is natural, less sugar added than the average jar of jam, and packed full of vitamins for a health conscious family. In addition their state-of-the-art, in-house lab makes sure every jar not only tastes great, but is safe for your family too.
The premium spreads come in a variety of flavors. The usual suspects of jam include: Wild Berry, Seville Orange. Apricot, Blackberry, Concord Grape, Four Fruit, Mango, Morello Cherry, Pomegranate, Raspberry, Strawberry and Superfruit. And just when you think that is more than enough, Crofter’s solidifies their spot in fruit spread greatness by adding an entire Biodynamic line, including: Apricot, Blueberry and Strawberry.
As Crofter’s boasts, Biodynamic agriculture strives to transmit the life-giving forces of nature through foods that are grown by working with the rhythms of the earth and the cosmos. The forces of nature are captured in quality foods with character to feed the body, mind and soul. Biodynamic practices use the most sustainable methods of agriculture and support fair trade principles.
Which makes it no surprise when I proclaim that my favored flavor of the entire tasting was Biodynamic Apricot. Packed with zest and savory sweetness, this jam was a fan favorite. Other lasting impressions included Seville Orange and Morello Cherry which authentically represented the fruits of which they were named. Seriously, it doesn’t get more naturally tasty than these little jars of heaven.
These spreads are perfect for giving you a taste of the weekend, to smack on sandwiches this fall, serve up at brunch, or even finish off with dessert. Natural, home-grown products always put a smile on our face and we are happy to have experienced the magic of Crofter’s Organic.
