Behind the Scenes, We Love SF and tagged , , | | | 2 Replies

Later this week, we’re giving away an Easter basket to one lucky winner. Chock full of Pottery Barn Easter decor and tabletop items, this Easter basket will also include Easter brunch-inspired edibles from local San Francisco companies. Today we’re getting to know INNA Jam, one of the local companies featured in our giveaway. Since INNA Jam is on Instagram, we thought it would be fun to get to know the company through some of its delicious-looking Instagram photos.

Founded by Dafna Kory, INNA Jam makes fresh, seasonal jams from fruit sourced within 150 miles of its San Francisco Bay Area kitchen. By sourcing produce directly from local organic farmers, INNA Jam is able to use the ripest, freshest fruits for its jams. INNA Jam specializes in single-varietal jams, which means it only use a single type of fruit for each jam — no herbs, spices or other flavorings are used in the jam, only single varietal fruit. INNA Jam is also an environmentally sustainable business. Employees transport and deliver jam on bicycles in the Bay Area. The company also accepts returns of empty jam jars and it composts the scraps from its Emeryville kitchen.

INNA Jam is also offering a variety of shrubs this spring. Shrub, originally from the Middle East and West Africa, became popular in the U.S. in the colonial era, and can be thought of as essentially a fruit-vinegar-sugar syrup. Try it mixed with sparkling water or as a cocktail ingredient.

This year, INNA Jam won a Good Food Award in the category of Preserves. Well deserved! (As you can see INNA also makes some spicy jams, too.)

We’re eager to try this INNA Jam combination: buttermilk vanilla cake with freshly made ruby grapefruit jam.

INNA Jam just released its salt-preserved meyer lemon pickles. Since they’re refrigerated, you can only buy them directly from INNA Jam’s Emeryville kitchen.
