V Smiley Preserves Strawberry Blackcurrant Rosemary Jam $15.95

While most jam makers might think honey is too strong a flavor to use in fruit preserves, V Smiley uses the natural sweetener expertly—honoring its intrinsic link to the fruit-growing process.

And just like the fruit and herbs that are the base for her lovely preserves (which she and her partner cultivate on her Vermont family farm), Smiley insists that the honey she uses be local, too. It’s made by bees that pollinate only within the state. Her elegant, well-balanced flavors feature a judicious use of interesting ingredients like wild herbs and flowers. The result? The most complex, uncommon, deeply flavorful fruit preserves that capture the taste of spring and summer days.

Not sure how you’d use it?

We test everything we sell. Here’s how we’d use this.

HOW TO USE

Spread this jam on buttered toast, halved biscuits and warmed scones—it’s especially lovely when paired with whipped cream or clotted cream. It’s wonderful on pound cake and as a filling for crêpes and cookies like our Coconut-Almond Macaroons with Cherry Preserves—just replace the preserves with the jam—and slathered on our Portuguese Cornbread (Broa), as the rosemary brings out the nuttiness of the flours. Smear it on hunks of soft cheeses like brie or aged ones like gouda. It’s also fantastic in cocktails: Adding a spoonful to your shaker imparts both sweetness and flavor. Try this in a gin-based early-summer cocktail, as the rosemary and juniper play nicely together.
