KATZ BLUEBERRY PRESERVES 16oz. $17
"For my money, KATZ makes the best jams in the country." Corby Kummer, The Atlantic
Star variety of Blueberry is the ideal preserving fruit with its firm texture and rich color, and a very high phenolic and anti-oxidant content for their amazing health benefits. These precious berries are grown by the fifth generation Sorensen family on their small farm where each blueberry is carefully picked by hand, and then sorted and prepared in our Napa kitchen.
Kim and I were surprised and delighted when celebrating an anniversary dinner at Chez Panisse that they were featuring Mark and Kimberly's berries on the menu…featured all by themselves!
The finished KATZ Blueberry Preserves highlight the full flavor and integrity of the whole berry. Similar to our Blackberry Preserves, the texture is a "softer set" making it more like a "compote" than a traditional preserves.
SERVING SUGGESTIONS: KATZ Blueberry Preserves is an ideal topping for your favorite ice cream or yogurt, for serving with fresh ricotta as a simply ethereal dessert, for slathering on a bagel with goat or cream cheese, for spooning over waffles or pancakes, or for spreading on some toasted, fresh rustic bread...eating out of the jar with a spoon isn’t bad either.
Making our fresh fruit preserves in the artisanal manner for the past 20+ years has been a true labor of love. Each new season brings the excited anticipation of visiting our farmer friends to see them once again and share in the bounty of their well-tended orchards and fields.
In our Napa kitchen, each batch of fruit is skillfully cut or sorted by hand, simmered in small, open kettles, using the smallest amount of sugar and fresh lemon juice needed to set (no pectin, no preservatives). Each "pot of jam" brings you 16 delectable ounces. . .a pound of preserved fruit in each jar hand wrapped in our proprietary Branches paper!
Articles in The Atlantic, Saveur, Gourmet, Fine Cooking, and The New York Times have inspired us to increase our production. Yet, with the small window Mother Nature provides for many of the varieties we use, we like to say around here, "when they’re gone...they’re gone!"
