Comments: A Tribute To My Brother and his Wife

Sounds interesting.

I bought a jar of bonne maman mixed berry jam (I need to check the label for the exact name) in paris in march. It finished yesterday and I thought it was one of the tastiest jam I had ever eaten.

It sounds like it was probably the Fruits Rouges variety. I think all their jams are very good, and the jars are ideal for storing the tail end of your pasta box or lentils! I notice that Clotilde (of Chocolate & Zucchini) even re-uses them to make new jam!

I think you should supply some free jars to the elders of the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs because you are using the berries that come from their traditional berry picking grounds. This would be a goodwill step from your company that would show that you truly do appreciate not only the indigenous berries of the area but will honor the people who have been picking them for centuries!
