Quince, a relative of apples and thought to be the forbidden fruit from the Garden of Eden, will surely tempt you with its exotic aroma and sweet tart flavor. And like Dorothy, we didn't have to look beyond our backyard to find this 'new' taste sensation-colonists brought Quince from England in 1629 and it still grows in old orchards all around us. This Quince Butter will amaze your tastes buds, proving that everyting old is new again. Spread some on toast, close your eyes, click your heels together, and relive the flavor that people have enjoyed since ancient times.
At Sidehill Farm takes pride in preserving the taste of homemade jam using the same methods our great grandmothers used to assure there is more fruit, and therefore more flavor in every bite. They combine the finest fruits with pure cane sugar, and boil them down the old fashioned way, without added pectin, preservatives or artificial ingredients. The rest of the world is coming back around to the idea of “slow foods”, but at Sidehill Farm there has never been any other way to do it.
Sidehill Farm’s gourmet jams, preserves and pure Vermont maple toppings make a fabulous gift made in Vermont.
