There is no shortage, In Today's World, of artisanal, handmade, small-batch, local-produce blahblahblah preserves jams jellies pickles relishes. High-end grocery shelves are lousy with them, in fact. And, in fact, many of them are, yes, lousy.
Not so O.C.'s own chef Jamie Gwen's In a Jam preserves. In generous 16-ounce jars rather than the twee thimbles many New Homesteading-type DIYers offer, with a flavor blast created with good ingredients in good recipes with good technique, Gwen's In A Jam jams are fab.
