Delicious Fruit Jams from Blue Ridge Jam

Today I would like to introduce you to the company called Blue Ridge Jams who makes the most fantastic jams that my family has every tasted! Blue Ridge Jam's products are made in small batches with the freshest fruits, vegetables, pure cane sugar and the finest ingredients available...by doing so, they can ensure a superior product that tastes great! .

About The Company (from their web site): Blue Ridge Jams has been making the finest gourmet food products in the Blue Ridge Mountains since 1961. Located south of Asheville, North Carolina with over 200 varieties of products available there is something for everyone. Our product lines include jam, jelly, pickles, relish, chow chow, conserve, and preserves. We also make an awesome array of Fruit Syrup, Salsa, and Apple and Peach Butter.

My Review: The gracious folks over at Blue Ridge Jams sent me and my family 4 jars of their products to try out. We received the: Jalapeno Strawberry Jelly, The Smokey Mountain Special, Three Pepper Jelly and the Habanero Pineapple Preserves. The first one that we decided to try out on our breakfast toast was the Habanero Pineapple Preserves. At first I wasn't sure if I would like it due to the Habanero Peppers...however, after just a few bites, I was in love!!! Hubby describes it as a fresh tasting pineapple with a kick! Later that same day I decided to make us some homemade waffles for lunch. We decided to try out some of the Jalapeno Strawberry Jelly on them and let me tell you, that jelly totally rocked those waffles! Again, the jelly tasted like fresh juicy strawberries but had the jalapeno pepper kick to it. It wasn't too hot...just right. The following day, we had our daughter up for breakfast with us and we decided to use the Smokey Mountain Special Jam which contains strawberries, raspberries and cherries in it and let me tell you, it had a wonderful fruity taste to it. We put it on our whole grain toast and it took our toast from drab to fab! The following day my hubby was anxious to try out the Three Pepper Jelly and he decided to try it out on some crackers, yes folks...hubs likes jelly on crackers! This jelly is a mixture of hot peppers with some spices so it has a really nice kick to it...perfect for my hubby!

Overall Impression: My family loved all 4 of the items we got to try out...my favorite was the Smokey Mountain Special and hubby's favorite was the Habanero Pineapple Preserves...but seriously, all 4 of them are delicious! My order arrived super quick to my home and was well packaged. I highly recommend that you check out Blue Ridge Jams!
