This is from our friends Girl Meets Dirt over on Orcas Island, one of the brands here in the islands that we absolutely love and admire. Their products are so dang tasty and unique, and they do such a great job of capturing island flavors.
"Just re-launched, we’re excited to offer this season’s batch just in time for the holidays. This was a long time coming and we are actually pinching ourselves it’s so good. We’re really into fruit over here. We’re surrounded by such beautiful bounty it’s our mission to make the most of it. But we also have some farmers growing top notch vegetables and folks are constantly asking us if we make pepper jam. SO- we made a pepper jam. But don’t be fooled this is not your usual pepper jelly. We had to give it the Girl Meets Dirt spin and max out that spiciness with lots of local fruit and a bit of punchy organic vinegar (made from WA apples) for balance. The quince and apple also add body to the set allowing us to stay committed to our ‘no pectin’ policy. It’s legit hot (yes!). It’s legit amazing. And it’s all natural. It’s one of those jars you need in your refrigerator to spice up lackluster meals (visualize dipping coconut shrimp or topping grilled salmon) and slather on cream cheese and crackers at a moment’s notice. Thanks to our farmers for growing these beauties. We’re pretty sure we did them justice.
