5 bold new jams for private label
With bold flavors like chile mango lime jam, The Gracious Gourmet has introduced premium jam flavors for private brand availability under its empresa line. The small-batch producer based in Bridgewater, Conn., makes a range of jams, jellies, pestos, spreads and tapenades, and the latest empresa line of jams are made to enhance cheeses, breakfast meals and dinners.
A Gracious Gourmet company spokesperson said they offer private label versions of all the products they carry, and some other exclusive recipes that are for private label only.
The products can also be produced in foodservice sizes.
The five new empresa-billed products shine with innovation:
Apple Sweet Cherry Jam — Described as two pie-worthy jams merging into one jam.
Chile Mango Lime Jam — Includes aleppo peppers and lime juice to enhance the mango flavor.
Balsamic Fig Jam — Adds balsamic vinegar to a traditional fig jam.
Spicy Red Pepper Jelly — Aleppo peppers and jalapenos bring some balanced heat to the jelly.
Blueberry Lemon Thyme Jam — A versatile jam that uses blueberries and lemons to brighten the thyme flavor of the jam.
