Blake Hill Black Currant with Wild Mint
Black currants, wild mint tea (water, wild mint), cane sugar, pure apple pectin
Our July 2023 featured jam is Black Currant with Wild Mint by Blake Hill Preserves. Its fruity taste and luscious texture make it an extremely versatile spread that is perfect for warmer weather!
Blake Hill’s Botanical Collection is inspired by the wild edible flowers in the meadows surrounding Blake Hill’s Vermont-based preservatory. This special “farm & forage” range of jams, with its natural and simple ingredients, offers a touch of sophistication to classic preserves.
We love the way this jam blends the intricate tart, sweet, and fruity flavors of black currants with the cooling taste of fresh, wild mint. For a twist on a classic PB&J pairing, try Blake Hill Black Currant with Wild Mint + our Peanut & Pecan Butter with Wildflower Honey or, if you’re an AB&J fan, try spooning it over a thick layer of our Good Food Award-winning Pistachio Crunch Almond Butter. We think you’ll be awestruck by the flavor complexity, and delightfully refreshed after eating!
About Blake Hill Preserves:
Located in the beautiful countryside of Grafton, VT, Blake Hill is a third-generation English preservatory that makes a unique selection of sweet, savory, and spicy jams. Founders Vicky Allard and Joe Hanglin purchased Blake Hill Farm in 2004 and soon thereafter began making jams with the wild berries and edible flowers foraged from the land. In 2009, after a friend brought a jar to the local market, he came back with their first order, and Blake Hill was officially born. Inspired by wild edible flowers in Blake Hill's meadows, their botanical jams infuse florals with the fresh, bright flavors of seasonal fruit.
