A new profile is up on the Local Creators! I was welcomed into the Oakland-based Blue Chair Fruit Company, the premier artisanal jam and marmalade company in the US. Owner Rachel Saunders and sous chef Jo Huynh were incredibly sweet and friendly, and chatted with me while picking berries in their kitchen. If you’re in the area and want some amazing jams (like their Bourbon’d Peach-Apple Jam or my favorite, the Meyer Lemon-Blood Orange Marmalade with Rose Geranium), stop by their kitchen on Mondays from 5-7pm for some sampling and friendly faces.
But in the meantime, check out the scene at Blue Chair Fruit on the Local Creators!
