How much alcohol do these contain? I guess my question is, will I need to eat all 3 to get a buzz or just 1?

raspberry & Violet? Peaches & Lavender? Ok, do we put this on toast or am I supposed to dab it behind my ears.

How strong are the notes of the flowers? Do they cover up at all the flavor of the fruit?

what is fleur de jam?
Is it only made with flowers?
because the preserves i'm making are made with fruits and flowers, the idea is to taste both of them

This actually sounds lovely. I am not sure I can bring myself to spend $20 on jam right now, but the flavor combos sound really interesting. I will have to think about this one for a minute.
Has anyone already tried them? Do they labrat this kind of thing?

Are the fruits organic/chemical free?

This sounds incredibly good!
Mr Grandmother always mixed 2 fruits to make jam.
She made an apple/peach jam that was heavenly.
It poured out of the jar like honey.

Is the Blackberry jam seedless?

you can keep them 2 years as long as it is closed, once it is open keep them in the fridge, you have 3 weeks to eat them, because i don't put any preservatives or corn syrup...or chemical products

the blackberry is not seed less, but i mix half puree and half whole fruits...the blackberry has a lot of seeds...so i thought it would be nicer not to have that many seeds..specifically for your teeth!!

I've never seen "refrigerate after opening" on jam before. Isn't the whole point of "preserves" that the sugar *preserves* them?!

the preserves can be kept a long time if it closed..my idea is to make fruit jam with a low sugar content, this way you can taste the fruit more than the sugar....i know this quite unusual

Any possibility of getting only the PEACH Lav.
Never happy with anything too seedy.
Three of one flavor would be a nice option.

I make jellies-not jam, which is a little different (I use mostly juice, jam uses more whole fruit, though I bet my jalapeno jelly is more like a puree).

You want to refrigerate open jars, it'll prevent mold, if nothing else. some reading suggest if the product is made of less than 67% sugar, it needs refrigeration, and I'm sure this is less than that. Even my jellies are less sugar than 50%.

This one sentence of the seller sold me. If it's good for the French, it's good for me! :D

No jelly toast for me. Sautee a duck breast until the skin is crisp & duck is medium rare. Remove from pan to rest. Deglaze plan with some sherry. Add a large dollop of peach lavender. Tear open a Earl Grey tea bag and add to sauce. Reduce & strain. Serve over duck breast with some Minnesota wild rice pilaf and your favorite WV pinot.

My mouth is watering and it's only 8:30am.

Blackberry & Poppy Flower Preserves

Ingredients: Blackberries and/or Marionberries, Sugar, Poppy Flower, Pectin



So is it random whether you get Marionberries in the Blackberry jam? What are the odds that we get only Marionberries in our Blackberry jam?

In for 3! I love jams flavored with herbs, flowers and alcohols, and one of these sets will be a perfect christmas present for a very hard to shop for aunt! Plus, raspberry preserves are my favorite by a long way, and as far as I'm concerned, vastly underrated in the common american grocery store. Can't wait! Merci beaucoup Coco!

I hope you and your aunt will enjoy them...and yes it is the perfect gift for Christmas.
Add some cookies, muffin, ice cream.. or a piece of goat cheese...with the peach and lavender it is really nice.

I bought these during the woot off . I've only tried the peach & lavender so far (in fact I'm eating it while I write this) and boy is it tasty! You definitely get a hit of lavender but not in a soapy way at all. It is plenty sweet even with less sugar. Even though I've only tried one flavor, it is so good I've already bought more this morning.

I'm glad these came up again, I wanted to buy them when they first appeared on the Woot-off but missed them by a few minutes.

I thought these would be lovely to serve over little mini cheesecakes, or mixed into some vanilla ice cream to give it a pop. Heck, as I sit here I can think of quite a few things you can do with these and have fun experimenting.

Cheese tasting plate (serve on the side and try different cheese + jam combinations)
Cupcake Filling (mix some into whipped cream and fill or leave it as is)
Mix just a touch into your tea instead of sugar
Turn it into a sauce for meats (I wager the peach would go well with pork, and the blackberry would be lovely with venison, someone try it and get back to me I don't eat meat :p )
As crazy as this one sounds, try spreading a thin layer onto a good quality piece of pizza (you might be surprised, I like raspberry on mine occasionally)

Those are some of the more interesting maybe you didn't think of them ones. Now excuse me while I click the gold button.
