So, as I was recording this veritable tower of apple butter in my trusty jam log tonight, I noticed that 8/15 happens to be my jam anniversary!

(also pictured: heirloom beans, sharpie, Israeli peanut snacks... Jessica Simpson?)

(That historic batch of strawberry jam, long digested, can still be viewed in the banner above.)

Putting the J in CSA

BtS is now available by subscription!

Buying a share of my jam harvest works like Community Supported Agriculture. You'll make a connection with local food while you perk up your pantry with fresh, healthy fruit and try new flavors. Meanwhile, I get to stay busy in the kitchen, knowing each jar will go to a good home. I'm already scheming exciting extracurriculars for members like picking parties and jam classes!

Get your monthly dose of freshly preserved fruit delivered FREE to your door! (Oakland / Berkeley / Alameda... if you live elsewhere in the bay area contact me and we'll work something out.)

I know, commitment is scary! I'll be taking new orders every quarter, so you only need sign up for 3 months at a time.

3 options depending on your level of jam consumption:
Dabbler - 1 jar x 3 mo = 3 jars / $18
Daily Toaster - 2 jars x 3 mo = 6 jars / $36
Connoisseur - 4 jars x 3 mo = 12 jars / $60
(Jams and butters come in 1/2 pint jars, 100% fruitsauces in pint jars.)

Place your order by 9/27.
I'll deliver the first week of Oct / Nov / Dec.
Pay by cash or check on first delivery.

Got fruit? Let's talk bartering!
