The perfect place to start exploring honey-sweetened preserves is with a bowl of ripe apricots or plums. V Smiley Preserves specializes in plum jams, spinning Vermont and the Northeast’s 3-month season of wild and cultivated plums into more than 12 flavors. Here in Vermont, we don’t always have an apricot season, but you should still have an apricot jam recipe for the August day when you luck into some local apricots. Apricots and plums preserve similarly, showcasing anise hyssop, lemon verbena, and myriad other aromatics from your garden. These minimally sweetened preserves prove themselves invaluable during the colder months for cooking and cheese pairing. You’ll go home with a jar of jam and a recipe for honey-sweetened stone fruit preserves.
