2022 Jam Capsule ①: Stone Fruit, Cherry and Berries

2022 Jam Capsule ①: Stone Fruit, Cherry and Berries

Summer– just when we finish canning one variety a new variety enters our kitchen. To most, it seems like berries or peaches or nectarines or cherries all come in at the same time.  (And, like this year...sometimes they do!!) Yet, the reality is that each week of the summer means a new fleeting variety that’s around for two weeks before it’s gone again until next year.

What we realized is that the resulting preserves can tell a story - an appreciation for a moment in time. This year, we have a capsule containing some fruit from absolutely special and spectacular harvests.

Murray's Family Farm Boysenberry 

About the Fruit
Nothing is as Southern Californian as the Boysenberry.  Walter Knott (of Knott's Berry Farm) planted boysenberry vines in the early 1930s and he came to discover that the grew voraciously on his land. This berry has become the iconic berry of the area, and surprisingly, is only found for 3 weeks out of the year.


Murray's Family Farm Olallieberry

About the Fruit

Olallieberries (“Ollalie” being a Native American word meaning “berry”), first developed at Oregon State University in 1949, are a cross between a Loganberry (a raspberry-blackberry cross from California) and a Youngberry (a blackberry variety from Louisiana). Although first developed in Oregon, these Olalliberries now thrive along the California coast, though not many farms cultivate these rare and highly perishable berries.
