A BROOME ST. GENERAL STORE BESTSELLER!
Would you believe we started working with Jessica back when we opened our doors in 2011 on consignment?!? A young ambitious jam-maker at the time, she was super gracious & humble and understood that taking her jam might be a risk for us! Fast forward a few years and Ms. Koslow has become an industry darling and her Silver Lake restaurant is an institution!
We're proud to be one of her first stockists!
Notes from the Maker:
BLENHEIMS WERE GROWN IN EUROPE NEARLY 200 YEARS AGO AND FLOURISHED IN THE GARDEN AT BLENHEIM PALACE IN ENGLAND, BIRTHPLACE OF SIR WINSTON CHURCHILL. THEY ARRIVED IN CALIFORNIA IN THE 1880S AND PRODUCTION SPIKED DURING THE WORLD WAR I ERA, AFTER A STOPPAGE OF IMPORTED DRIED FRUIT FROM EUROPE. THE LARGEST FARMING AREAS FOR THE VARIETY WERE THE SACRAMENTO AND SANTA CLARA VALLEYS.
