Boysenberry Jam - Artist Collection

What could be better than coming out with a killer jam? Finding out that the folks behind Women Ball Too, whose message is to put the spotlight on women's sports, loves your jam! So, of course, we joined efforts to come out with our first Artist Collection label of their own design with the following message:

"To all the women who jam on the court, this toast (with jam) goes out to you!We’ve heard from athletes, fans and coaches, and the time is now, to give credit where it is due. So help us make a statement and support your first women’s sports network to be! Women Ball Too. So Can You!"

Boysenberries are steeped in California and Oregon agricultural history dating back to the 1920's when the first crossings between a raspberry, blackberry, loganberry and dewberry were attributed to Rudolph Boysen. It's these newfangled berries that grab the attention of Walter Knott and later become the draw of his success of Knott's Berry Farms.

Our delicious boysenberry jam is a seeded jam for added texture that is great for just about anything. Whether it's an alternate choice for a PB&J over strawberry, a pork glaze, an ice cream topping or a silver dollar short stack with boysenberry jam instead of slathering them with pancake syrup. 

We start with only fresh picked berries that were hand selected and cleaned from one of our favorite Oregon specialty berry growers. Our recipe uses only fresh boysenberries, pure cane sugar, a little citrus pectin for help with gelling and a generous splash of freshly squeezed lemon juice for a little zing to the flavor in this magical combination. 

As a huge proponent for equality, we couldn't help but start a conversation with this Eugene, OR based team whose message and artwork we love. The Artist Collection is a special collectible series in conjunction with very talented artists that have picked their favorite flavor jam and designed their own label to showcase their artwork on a different medium. Although these flavors are the same as in our standard collection, 20% of purchase price of this collection of jams goes directly back to the artist in promoting their work. 

Enjoy!!
