It's rare to find a business that operates for decades on the principles it was founded upon, never compromising quality for efficiency, and never putting profits over integrity. American Spoon is just such a business. When Justin Rashid and Chef Larry Forgione founded it in 1982, their goal was to produce "the finest fruit preserves in the world from Michigan fruit." Justin would seek superb fruit varieties grown by local farmers, and Larry would create recipes to celebrate them.

Thirty-seven years later, Justin, along with his wife, Kate Marshall, and their son, Noah, still operate American Spoon. They've never wavered from their mission, and they still maintain close-knit relationships with their farmers to source the best possible fruit varieties. Each batch is made at their Petoskey, MI, kitchen by their small team of skilled cooks. They prepare the fruits by hand and cook them with care in small-batch copper kettles, resulting in lush, full-flavored jams.

Their take on a favorite fall classic, Apple Butter, is truly inspired. Made with just three ingredients, Michigan apples, water, and cinnamon, the pure apple flavor shines. One bite and you can almost feel the crisp fall breeze and cozy scarves.

We are so excited to feature American Spoon Apple Butter as our September 2020 Featured Jam. Available while supplies last á la carte and in recommended PB&J and AB&J pairings.
