Chances are when you had your toast or bagel this morning you topped it with ho- hum grape jelly or maybe you stepped out of the box and had cream cheese.
For the last few weeks I’ve stepped all the way out of the box and have been feasting on Norm’s Farms (Elder) Berry Jams and Jellies.
Have you ever heard of an elderberry? Elderberries are relatively new to the superfruit market, boasting 3x’s the antioxidants of blueberries, strong immune support and are delicious. Although elderberries look very similar to other berries they really are in a league all their own. The deep dark purplish berry is sweet and very juicy. They taste great eaten as a jam, jelly or lemonade or in your favorite berry recipe.
While elderberries are widely used for their medicinal properties for the purpose of this review I will concentrate on their baking and eating uses. If you’re like me sometimes your baking/cooking can become routine or ho-hum. You find yourself making the same dishes and using the same products day after day and week after week. Do like I did and step out of the box, try Norm’s Farms sampler pack. The Norm’s Farms Jam Pack which includes elderberry jam, blueberry elderberry preserves and my family favorite elderberry ginger pecan jam. The Jam Pack is truly for Jam lover’s everywhere with 3-4 grams less sugar than most jams available on the market today.

The list is endless for all of the recipes you can substitute or create using elderberries. They are so versatile they could be used in drinks, savory or sweet recipes. The complex flavor of the elderberry is not one you will soon forget. Sweeter than a grape but lighter on the palette I just can’t get enough of the elderberry ginger pecan jam.
