Oregon Growers-Marionberry Fruit Spread
WHY WE LOVE IT
Who can resist waking up in the morning, when you have this flavor packed treat waiting for you to spread onto a perfectly butter toast, on your muffin or dalloped on top of your yogurt?
When I was exploring fruit spreads to add to my shop, I try to look for unique flavors that you may not find so as easily in your local supermarket. I did some research on what a marionberry is and was eager to try it!
Here is some info found in an article in Food and Wine magazine:
“One particular berry stands out as the true summertime fruit, as it's harvested in mid-July: the marionberry.”
“Marionberries are sometimes referred to as the "king of the blackberries," but they're still grown exclusively in Oregon. The 28 to 33 million pounds of marionberries that Oregon produces each year make them the most common blackberry in the state, and they account for more than half of Oregon's entire blackberry crop.”
”The rich, earthy flavor of marionberries is a meld of tartness and sweetness. Compared to common blackberries, marionberries have a firmer texture.”
My kids love this one!
Surprise your significant other by making her breakfast with this vibrant delightful jam his Valentine’s Day!
Makes a great birthday gift, housewarming gift and birthday gift too!
