Blue Ridge Jams Review

I would like to introduce my readers to a company called Blue Ridge Jams. They are located in Dana NC, and have sent me two jars of their products to taste and review about.

The company has been making these jams, and other fine gourmet products in the Blue Ridge Mountains since 1961. They have a huge variety of products to choose from. They range from jams, jelly's to pickles and preserves. And much, much more.

So I am excited to get started. First up, the Smokey Mountain Special preserves.

Smokey Mountain Special is a delicious triple berry mixture of Strawberries, Raspberries, and Cherries in a preserve that is like nothing you have ever tasted.

I loved nothing more than trying this on some toast with a hot cup of coffee. So what I made was a Smokey Mountain Special and a peanut butter sandwich. The special is a wonderful tasting mix of triple berry's. The blend is strawberries, raspberries and cherries, made into a fantastic tasting preserve. In every bite you taste the real fruit that was used. You can taste the quality and care that was put into making the preserves, it showed in every bite. There are small pieces as well as large pieces of the fruit in the preserves. Even though this was a preserve, it was as smooth as jam. This product would taste so wonderful in many different recipes, like cakes, cookies, or even over some buttermilk pancakes. My little one had her preserves over top of some vanilla ice cream. I stole a bite, and it was yummy in my tummy.

Next up was the Jalapeno Strawberry Jelly.

This time I used the jelly, in a glaze for my pork chops. There's nothing better than some sweet, and spicy flavor in your recipes. You got the sweetness from the strawberries and the spice from the Jalapeno, and it was in perfect balance. Also I tried some poured over some cream cheese, and served with Ritz crackers. Dinner was a hit. Everyone enjoyed the chops and the crackers. The taste was a mixture of warmth and sweetness in every bite. And the glaze that it created on the pork chop was perfect. It stuck to it, not runny at all.

If you would like to know more about the products as well as these from Blue Ridge Jams, hop over to there website and try them out. There"s so much to choose from.

Also you can find them on twitter and facebook as well.

It's also nice to know that their products are available retail and wholesale.

Looking for a different gift. Their products would look great in a gift basket.
