The first time we tasted SQIRL's jams - Seascape Strawberry and Rose Geranium - it was nearly a religious experience. It was a lazy morning at The Sea Ranch, and we spread this ethereal jam over some rustic bread. We were instantaneous devotees.
From SQIRL LA, "McGrath Family Farms, which has been working the Oxnard Plain since 1868 produces some of the most beautiful organic Seascape Strawberries I've come across this 2011 season. The varietal has quiet a high acidity content. Firm in texture and compact in size and flavor they are perfect for preserving because the addition of (in our case, Fair Trade Organic) cane sugar allows the jam to retain the fruits' authenticity without being cloyingly sweet.
Rose Geranium - which finds itself most often distilled for use in the perfume industry - is instead steeped in the strawberries for a day pulling beautiful Rose scents and notes into the preserve. This jam is elegant -tasting of fresh strawberries with a touch of rose. Classic and classy all at once."
