Truth be told, the holiday season is a mixed bag for me. One one hand, it fills me with dread as the commercialism of the holidays has become so overwhelming, I can barely set foot out in the world from Halloween until the new year. On the other hand, I look forward to a season where people find time to connect to each other in a way they often ignore the rest of the year. I look forward to holiday parties and intimate gatherings where people come together over great food and drinks. There is something warm and inviting about these events, from ornate to casual, that really feeds our need for connection and community.
At Gilmer Farms, our goal is always to provide you with simple ways to make every get together special, and we have a great line up of jam this year, from old classics to new creations. We had a lovely growing season this year in Utah, albeit a bit late, and that abundance is reflected in our jams. We'll also be releasing two holiday favorites later this month, Mulled Wine Jelly and Cranberry Pomegranate Jam, both of which highlight the flavors of the season.
We wish you the very best this holiday and many blessings in the coming year! As always, we love to hear from you, so feel free to reach out.
