Damson Plum Jam

Crafted By: Ayako Gordon

Seattle, WA

The Damson Plum is small and pear-shaped with distinct notes of violet and bright acidity. This jam has a rich lingering finish of floral vanilla balanced with tart undertones of red currant, giving it great structure and vibrancy. It's going to fast become a kitchen go-to!

While you could easily use the entire jar by slathering the spread on your favorite bread (toasty brioche for us!) it's killer in a multitude of savory and sweet dishes to impress your friends and family. This jam is a perfect addition to an Asian-tinged glaze for grilled ribs or chicken; added to summer fresh popsicles; or even in homemade pop-tarts!
