japanese burgundy PLUM jam
The most tart jam we make! This tart and luscious jam has a spicy richness, reminiscent of cherries.
Japanese plums were first brought to California in the late 1800s and were introduced to the general public by Berkeley horticulturalist John Kelsey in 1870. They are especially well-suited to California's mild and dry winters. In 1883 The Pacific Rural Press wrote about this new "Japan Plum": "it is of superb quality, melting, rich and juicy; in fact, to some tastes, at least, has a more satisfying flavor than any other plum. For cooking, jelly, or preserving in any manner it has no equal."
Due to limited availability of fruit, we were only able to produce a small amount of this jam, hence the "LIMITED EDITION" label. Please note that LIMITED EDITION jams are only available from our website (and our Emeryville kitchen shop).
