The business of making jam is pretty sweet. Time spent slowly stirring a bubbling cauldron of fruit and sugar can bring out the sweetness - in the person and the fruit.
Meet Rachel. Rachel is the owner of Blue Chair Fruit Company based here in the Bay Area. Her marmalades are made, by hand, in these small French copper kettles with locally-grown, seasonal fruits. Rachel can be found on weekends at the local farmer's markets and she is nice enough to come into our stores to sample her products some afternoons. The patience and passion she stirs into her marmalades contributes to the finished product, of which we're HUGE fans.

The Blue Chair has a depth of flavor and a subtlety unlike the typical orange marmalade, which is generally overly sweet and with a bitter aftertaste. Try this on an English muffin with a cup of Earl Grey.
