Each of our products are crafted with a specific moment in mind and our Northern Bliss Jam is no different. With every bite, the perfect blend of strawberries and rhubarb brings us back to our childhood. From walking through the blueberry fields in Canada to eating a piece of strawberry rhubarb pie with Grandma, there is nothing else that reminds us more of home.
The combination of strawberries and rhubarb is well known to anyone from the north, but I created our Northern Bliss Jam almost by accident.
The flavor of strawberry rhubarb pie was something I loved, but could rarely have because of my gestational diabetes. While on a journey to create healthier foods for my family, I began creating different combinations in the kitchen. On a whim, I decided to mix strawberry and rhubarb into a jam.
And so the Northern Bliss Jam was created!
Just like many of Farmstead Annalise’s products, our Northern Bliss Jam is a reminder of our own experiences. As a child, I spent many of my summers in Canada with my Grandmother.
She ran a small farm with several chickens, vegetables, and pretty much anything else you can imagine. In fact, I often joke that she was the original co-op because she would frequently grow or raise anything for a small fee.
She was an inspiring women who made everything from scratch. From freshly picked fruits for breakfast to eating the catch of the day for dinner, everything on the farmstead was simple. Once I was grown and had a child of my own, I made sure to visit home and allow Madeleine those same experiences.
The life my Grandmother built is everything we strive to be here at Farmstead Annalise. Those simple moments on the farm are the days we will never forget. As the business grows, we will always be sure to remember our roots. After all, each of our products has a story and the stories behind Farmstead Annalise are important.
Our goal is to bring simple, good for you, products to the market. After all, if we don’t love it, why would you?
Our Northern Bliss Jam is made with strawberry, rhubarb, organic sugar, pectin, and lemon juice. We recommend pairing it with Greek yogurt, thumbprint cookies, or on a turkey sandwich. We hope you enjoy it just as much as we do!
