I think it was some time around 2010 during the first ever Best Food Forward that we attended when we first tasted The Fruit Garden. Fruit Garden makes these spectacular jars of delicious innovative jams using only the best fruits and flavors, creating unique taste that will tickle your taste buds. I'm not much of a jam person but I have to admit I really liked The Fruit Garden .
And now, they are featuring their 2014-2015 Festive Collection, just in time for the coming Holidays!
What's special about The Fruit Garden jams are the way they are cooked and prepared. They are cooked in copper cauldrons as it is done in French traditions. And this also means they are 100% natural. What's in it is 60% fruit, some sugar and sometimes fruit pectin only when necessary. This is definitely something your kids can enjoy as well, and you won't be guilty about it.
The Fruit Garden's Festive Collection includes a new collection of delicious flavors influenced apricot and peaches. Fruits that are from Southern France. And then these two fruits are playfully mixed and matched with interesting flavors I never knew would go well together such as fresh thyme, rose water, and lavander. Interestingly, they taste good!
This festive collection would not be as festive without attractive packaging that make it worthy to give as a Christmas gift to friends and loved ones. These beautiful boxes are dressed up in a way that is inspired by the Provence Region.

And to really make it more Provance, they used Provencal fabric for the boxes. A colorful fabric with patterns that were first printed in the south of France during the mid 17th century. So when you give out these jam collections, especially to women, they will definitely appreciate not just the jams but the beautiful boxes as well.
