Last Saturday was the perfect day for a picnic! The sun was shining the air was warm with a slight breeze and the Spring flowers were out in full bloom. In addition to being the first picnic of the season it was also the first time I could use the Coca-Cola picnic basket set that I purchased from an antique store over the winter.
Nicole Rutsch of Jammy (TheArtofJam.com) was kind enough to do a jam tasting in Prospect Park with a select group of friends. She brought several of the gourmet flavors for us to try and I must say, they are fantastic! My favorite must be the Peach, Raspberry & Lavender flavor which reminds me of the perfect mid-summer evening. A close second is surprisingly the Strawberry, Habanero and Basil flavor. I expected to taste the Habaneros, however they're very subtle only adding a kick of spice at the end that pairs deliciously with a sharp cheddar.
All Jammy products are handmade from the freshest ingredients. Nicole is the creator and designer of Jammy and her passion for the jam industry oozes through these delectable flavors. In addition to arranging unique pairings, she brings a European flair to the table with her German roots. The logo is based on her grandmother's script from family recipes and the jars are German made.
Is your mouth watering yet? If so, as a reminder, Fourth Floor Walk Up is hosting a Jammy giveaway where the winner will have the choice of three of the Jammy flavors they would prefer! Don't forget, Mother's Day is just around the corner (May 13th) and these jams would make for a very special gift.
Please see previous Jammy giveaway post for specific details on how to enter. Winner will be chosen at random Monday, April, 30 at 9pm EST. GOOD LUCK!!
