KATZ ORGANIC MEYER LEMON MARMALADE 16 oz. $18.00
It takes 3 days to make each batch...truly a "slow" food!
"For my money, KATZ makes the best jams in the country." Corby Kummer, The Atlantic
KATZ Organic Meyer Lemon Marmalade is packed with the intense piquant and tart flavors associated with this fruit. The texture is a bit smoother than our more traditional Three Citrus Marmalade, with an almost jam-like consistency.
The cycle of our preserves making begins each year with our organic marmalades. We continue to make them the same way we have for the last 20+ years...using organically grown fruit from our garden...carefully removing all the peel while leaving the white pith that is then trimmed away, leaving just the luscious citrus to be hand-cut, mixed back with the peel, filtered water, and cane sugar. WOW! The laborious process takes three days for every batch, until the flavor-packed mixture, with full pieces of citrus in every bite is set, using no commercial pectin…a 'slow' but rewarding journey!
KATZ Organic Meyer Lemon Marmalade is ready to lavish on whole-wheat toast with cream cheese or goat cheese, a scone or an English muffin, or to serve as a condiment with roasted pork and warm greens!

Making our fresh fruit preserves in the artisanal manner for the past 25+ years has been a true labor of love. Each new season brings the 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).
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!"
