We are so excited to welcome several unique, specialty jams from BRINS to our gourmet pantry. These handcrafted jams and marmalades are made with the highest quality spices and favorite fruits, creating the perfect balance between the comfort of familiarity and the excitement of a new experience. Our favorite jam is Cherry Chai Jam. Try it out!
After traveling extensively in Asia, Europe & Middle East as an architect, Candice found herself staying up late & sneaking out early from work meetings to wonder the many spice markets & souks; seeking to explore each culture through its oldest flavors. She learned that through flavor we say & share so much. It’s how we share home.
BRIN’s mission is simple:
“To marry the highest quality spices with our favorite fruits to build the perfect space, one balanced with the comfort of familiarity & excitement of a new experience.”
Six Gourmet Jams in our Jams, Preserves & Fruit Spreads Section
Here are the new gourmet jams from Candice that you can find for purchase in our Jams, Preserves and Fruit Spreads section of our online shop:
|Banana Jam: Tropical and fruity sweet bananas meet real vanilla bean with a touch of molasses. Mellow vanilla rounds out the boldness of sweet bananas to create this simple yet complexly comforting jam. Delicious served over custardy, sweet, golden bread pudding for a decadent yet comforting dessert everyone will love!|
|Chili Pepper Jam: This one’s is spicy! Made with chili peppers that are cooked in a bath of apple cider vinegar, ginger root, garlic and a touch of lime juice, this jam has a smooth lingering spice with a kick of flavor from all sides. And who doesn’t love a spicy kick!? This incredible, spicy jam is excellent as a glaze for roast pork and chicken. Sooooo good!|
|Cherry Chai Jam: Made with tart, bright, New York sour cherries that are bathed in the warming traditional chai spices of cinnamon, cardamon, and ginger. BRINS collaborated with their Brooklyn neighbors Dona Chai, the best there is, and a fellow small batcher making chai tea through fresh ground spices every day.|
|Lemon Saffron Jam: Thinly sliced lemons are slowly simmered with a heavy pinch of fragrant, floral saffron threads. The honey like scent of saffron hits you first, followed by bright, tart lemons.|
|Rosemary Grapefruit Jam: Fresh, earthy rosemary, and zesty, sweet-tart grapefruit are fused together to make one of the most complex and versatile marmalades you will ever have.|
|Strawberry Lemongrass Jam: Ripe red strawberries are delicately simmered with citrusy, floral Thai lemongrass for a light twist on everyone’s childhood favorite. Serve it on crackers, crusty bread, toast… just about anything for a light, refreshing breakfast or afternoon snack.|
And I know what you’re thinking… how can you choose just one? Well, you don’t need to because we put together a special “You Pick” 3-pack where you can pick any three different Brins Jams, or all the same flavor, or any combination:
Recipes we’ve already made with Cherry Chai Jam
We are in love with the Cherry Chai Jam served over sweet summer peaches. Broiled Peaches with Cherry Chai Jam is the combination of the soft, tender peaches with caramelized Cherry Chai Jam which will amaze and delight your guests.
Turn a simple chocolate ice cream into a magnificent dessert by stirring in some Cherry Chai Jam and a splash (or two) of cherry brandy or Grand Marnier. Cherry Chai Chocolate Ice Cream is one of our easiest 1-2-3 recipes at Spoonabilities. You’re going to love it! Two other recipes we already made with this jam are Grilled Salmon with Chipotle Cherry Sauce and Cherry Vinaigrette Dressing on Autumn Harvest Salad.
Stay tuned for more Gourmet Jams, Mustards, & Sauces!
We hope you enjoyed learning about our newest additions to our gourmet pantry, and hope you add a few varieties of BRINS Jams to your pantry too.
