French Apricot Jam

Sometimes unrequited love is worth it.

For many of us, apricots are a “yeah, whatever” or “never touch ‘em” and others can’t wait until May or June when the first of the apricots are ripe on the tree. (This is really a sweet year for apricots.) 

A great fresh apricot is like candy. Hard to comprehend when our first taste of an apricot is a dried one, tart and chewy and quite unappealing. So we think, why bother… 

So many foods, when you enjoy them fresh, as close to the earth as possible, picked-at-their-peak, can be mind-blowing good. Like a fresh apricot. 

And sometimes, those foods can be transformed, placed into a jar and come out just like you want them to be. Freshly delicious! 

And that is what we have here. Abricot fruit cooked in a copper cauldron with brown sugar, where time and patience make all the difference. 

This jam is by all standards, amazing! It tastes like fresh apricots, though never sharp or sour, it is a spoonful of a sweet treat. 

The flavor of apricot, the way a freshly bitten fruit would be, is all there, swelling like a balloon rising, the smoothness of the flavor envelops all the senses, with the right cheek filling more than the left and then the tongue feels the weight of the flavor. And then suddenly you realize the physical being is gone, and all you are tasting is the memory! 

And what a memory! It is indeed splendiferous. 

And it is indeed spoon-ready, perfect for a croissant, sourdough bread, scone, oatmeal, cheese, pork chop and chicken. And of course crépes!

I’ve always been a “strawberry” flavor loyalist. My father used to love apricot jam....I decided after visiting Paris in 2019(thank goodness we went when we did) I’d give this apricot jam a try. Far and away the best quality and flavor....went back to reorder and was too late. Sold out. Says it all right? I used it first on a fresh baked lemon ginger scone from a local Seattle area bakery. Have it on pre-order now. ❤️

A truly unique jam with a wonderful taste
This is a great jam. I've separately reviewed La Trinquelinette's Strawberry Jam, which is also a wonderful product. But their Apricot Jam is quite a unique taste sensation. I enjoy it on a toasted slice of homemade sourdough bread, sometimes combined with a nice almond or cashew butter. No better way to start the day! You will not regret purchasing this item.
