Please tell me about the most incredible (or even just *really* good) fruit jam, jelly, preserve, spread and curd you know of, especially if it's obtainable in the US. (While it's always charming to hear about grandma's wonderful jellies, it's frustrating to know they cannot be had.) Mention unusual fruits and methods, be lyrical and evocative, tell me how you use these darlings and what crazy things they have made you do so's you could get their hands on them.
Hell, I'll take recipes, too.
Anyone tried the outrageously expensive Bar-le-Duc, at $35 per 3 oz., available from Dean & Deluca?
I will start by confessing a passion for wild huckleberry preserves and topping from the Huckleberry Patch in Hungry Horse, Montana (that name alone should make you want to try it). 'Tis good stuff - see link below.
