Black Raspberry & Lemon Verbena Jam
Raspberries are so beautiful and make gorgeous jam. Unfortunately it's just a little to warm in the Piedmont region of North Carolina to grown them reliably and in any kind of quantity. Over the years I've been able to find some pockets of these beauties, but usually they are far and few between. That is why I'm so excited to have found the folks at River Ridge Organics just over the North Carolina border in Independence, VA. They grow gorgeous berries of all kinds, but most importantly they grow both red raspberries AND black raspberries AND they are all certified organic. We roast these gorgeous raspberries to deepen their rich flavor before we turn them into jam. Combined with lemon verbena from our friends at Poppy Sol this is a delightful, delicious and delicate jam.
Ingredients: organic black raspberries from river ridge organics in independence va, organic sugar, organic lemon juice, pomona pectin, lemon verbena from poppy sol farm in pittsboro nc
