Cherry Rosemary Jelly
They say rosemary is the memory herb, so start remembering old phone numbers with this delicious deep red jelly. The rosemary is the first taste and is smoothly matched and leveled by the tart red cherry. We pour the hot cherry juice over fresh rosemary and let the two flavors fuse. You can’t pile enough of this on a hot, toasted English muffin!
Apple Basil Jelly
Our Apple Basil Jelly has the familiarity of a sweet apple jelly but with a crisp aftertaste of fresh garden-grown basil. These two flavors create wonderful possibilities for not only favorite breakfast breads but it is a must-have ingredient for glazes and marinades for chicken and pork. Some folks prefer it with lamb. It is a lovely clear golden jelly we stock ourselves for some of our most often-requested recipes.
Red Hot Lover Pepper Jam
This is the best-selling member of our jelly/jam family. The recipe was perfected in time for Valentine’s Day ’99, thus its name also denotes its taste temperature. Made with fresh jalapeno, habanero, serrano, and sweet bell peppers, Red Hot Lover is sweet, tart, and has a spicy “bite”. It is a must for the next time you prepare chicken or beef fajitas (glaze the meat while grilling or do like we do: just heap a tablespoon on the tortilla!), use it as a sauce for Chinese egg rolls, pour it over cream cheese and serve as a spread with crackers, wrap and bake it with brie cheese in phyllo dough or puff pastry. It is a bright red jam with chunks of pepper...keep it in your pantry at all times!
Pear Pecan Jelly
One fall we had an over-abundance of fresh pears from not only our own trees but also the especially prolific trees from one mother-in-law. After just so many loaves of pear bread, you start experimenting...so we threw in a handful of toasted pecans into a pot of simmering fresh pears and made a lovely golden jam. You can never go wrong with this at your breakfast table. Sweet chunks of pears and the “earthy-ness” of freshly toasted pecans will make it a household favorite or thoughtful gift (an excellent pear jam is hard to find!). Have it over ice cream, pancakes, and waffles!
Prairie Fire Jam
Prairie Fire, the newest member of our jam/jelly family, made to salute the state of Oklahoma Centennial. A delightful blend of five berries and jalapeno peppers. Use it to make sauces, glaze meats, or bake in a dessert bar. Of course, delicious over cream cheese.
Blackberry Sage Jelly
No seeds here which is only one of the reasons you should try this deep purple beauty. The herb component of this jelly complements the rich blackberry. We simmer the berries, strain away the seeds, and let the hot juice stew with fresh sage leaves which are removed before jelly making. The result is a subtle note of sage with the excellent taste of blackberries. Slather it liberally on toast in the morning or give your peanut butter sandwich a new twist.
Apricot Mustard - Sold Out
Our unique mustard is spicy-sweet. We combine the hot dry mustard powder with apricots and brown sugar for a result that is excellent on roasted pork, hamburgers, hot dogs, bratwurst, roast beef, baked ham, etc. We make Apricot Mustard the base for a great mustard sauce for pork chops. For anyone who enjoys a good Dijon or spicy mustard, this will become a favorite!
