This past weekend, we took a trip to The Homeplace (it was as wonderful as always!) and, before leaving, I did what I always do…. I hit the gift shop and hit it hard. I intended on getting another jar of the Raspberry Jalapeno Jam – in addition to trying another flavor. Unfortunately, I didn’t see a jar of the Raspberry Jalapeno Jam, but I did spy this beauty – Red Raspberry Jam. Raspberries are one of my favorite things in life, so I snatched this jar up before it knew what hit it.
Before I start telling you about how delicious this jam is, I have to say how much I appreciate the completely reasonable price. Less than $4! I don’t have to tell you how it is in most gift shops, souvenir shops, and antique shops. They mark things up about as high as they conceivably can. Seems to me that it’s much cooler to make things affordable for your guests and visitors – allowing them to buy several things instead of popping on just one overpriced item.
I love that The Homeplace has these jams marked so well within reason – for one thing, I love a bargain… but most of all, the fact that they’re inexpensive means I can buy several different flavors instead of trying to decide on one!
I made cornbread to use for our first dive into this beautiful and delicious jam and it was a knock-out. A TOTAL knock-out. It was every bit as good as the Raspberry Jalapeno Jam and I will look for it as well on each trip to The Homeplace.
