Damson Plum Honey Jam

13.75

The one, the only, the damson plum. These tiny, labor intensive (that’s why the price is a little higher) plums pack loads of flavor (tart skin, tannic around the pits, sweetness in the flesh) which make them the queen of plums for jam-making. Like the Seville orange or the quince, their flavor and scent are unpacked in the cooking process.

Damson plums are hard to find. In Washington state, there was really only one grower of size who sold these plums. Here in Vermont, the situation is the same. All the damsons come from Scott Farm in Dummerston Vermont. This orchard has made it their job to preserve more unusual varieties of fruit, fruit that doesn’t fit supermarket model, but makes great food.

This jam is traditional for game ( even grass raised duck can have the extra flavor) or slathered on a roast turkey sandwich. It will contend the stinkiest of blue cheeses, but this jam is a flavor I’d start by enjoying straight from the jar. Plum preserves from V Smiley Preserves are always minimally sweetened and especially loaded with fruit and the organic texture of luscious stone fruit.

This honey sweetened jam contains: damson plums, honey, lemon juice.
