Our Cherry Fennel Sherry Jam was made in collaboration with V Smiley Preserves.
It's made from New York cherries, and the flavor was inspired by V’s trips out west, where she learned that the mouth-puckering sweet and sour bite of sour cherries are the secret to making a well-balanced and flavorful cherry jam. It's a natural companion to our sweet, herbal fennel, which is a nod to Spanish flavors. The Spanish Pedro Ximénez sherry vinegar adds acidity and richness, replacing most of the lemon juice that would be used for a traditional sweet jam.
This jam is food-friendly and makes an especially great companion to mustard. Try it in a Dijon vinaigrette and drizzle over potatoes. Put it out on a cheese or charcuterie board, where it will make friends with everyone. Or spread it on French toast!

Love this jam. So different and delicious!! It’s great in plain yogurt, on a cheese & meat board, or a spoon! I really am enjoying it. Thank you B&B
The jam is delicious & does not disappoint in flavor. Take note of the described viscosity; it is a great dipping sauce for breads and savory foods alike.
Love your products
I have been extremely happy with all of this spices
Completely balanced flavor profile, you taste all the flavors in this jam. I received this in the spice club box and after trying it I decided to use it for baked salmon. A fresh sockeye filet sprinkled with some Spanish Sherry vinegar, a little French sea salt and then coated with the entire jar of jam-it was so good! I would love a larger jar of this to try on some Cornish game hens or quail.
Got this in my Club box and was so curious about the flavor combo. It was sublime with a cheese board, but just as excellent on a slice of afternoon toast. Such a lovely balance of sweet and savory. I've also never had jam made with honey and it was a lovely treat. Would love to purchase a bigger jar.
Wow! Like everything from burlap and barrel this thrilled me!
