Canners have a way of finding each other and I’m glad I found Norah because we organized a swap: My Wild Blueberry with Grand Marnier and Carrot Apple Butter for Aagaard Farm’s Nanking Cherry Jelly and Grape Jelly, both from her own farm. Love local jams!
It’s always a great day when jams arrive in your mail box. I couldn’t wait to tuck into the Nanking Cherry Jelly and downing a big spoonful was the best way to celebrate the bright, straight-from-the-garden flavour. Cherry is the one flavour that always makes me smile. It was equally delicious stirred into yogurt and when my husband dolloped it on his scone, he proclaimed the jar his own.
I’m excited to tuck into the Grape Jelly and have no doubt it’s going to be just as great.
So if you’re in the Brandon, Manitoba area, take a peek at Aagaard farms. They offer CSA packages and if you manage to score some of their jelly, consider yourself very lucky!
