About KATZ Raspberry Preserves
The pesticide-free, summer berries that we use for KATZ Raspberry Preserves are grown by a local farmer and his family on their farm in Santa Cruz. The cool, coastal influences of the area produce warm days and cool nights that help develop the natural sugars and complex flavors of the berries. The Polka variety of raspberry is pleasantly tart, and bright in color and flavor.
The finished Raspberry Preserves exhibit that intense, sweet and tart balance that makes this offering so popular every year. Perk up your mornings with the high antioxidant raspberry, which contains ellagic acid that helps prevent cell membrane damage, so don't forget to stock up - quite frankly, they can be eaten straight out of the jar.
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!"
