Veepie Grape JamProduced by Ayers CreekGaston - Oregon
Anthony and Carol Boutard’s Ayers Creek Farm near Gaston, Oregon produces food that chefs fight to get. Their organic jams are made without commercial pectin and contain just farm-grown fruit, lemon juice, and a little sugar. Developed in Ontario in the early 50s, the Veepie Grape is a true culinary grape, grown specifically for preserves, much like how certain apples are grown for tarts and pies. Bracingly tart when eaten fresh from the hand, the Veepie makes for a delicious, bright jam, and is as good on ice cream as it is in PB&Js.
