While trying to decide on an artisan product to review, the first thing that came to mind is jam. Maybe it’s because I enjoyed homemade biscuits last week, or maybe it’s because the art of jam making brings to mind memories of our grandmothers—cooking down the puree over the stove, canning the preserves in an all-day affair.
