Today I'm canning a new jam to commemorate spring and celebrate the opening of the Cincinnati Fine Food Show, which is part of the 21st Annual Cincinnati Flower Show this weekend in Symmes Township Park. It's a big event, and usually grabs a few pictures in Better Homes and Gardens.
The new jam is based on strawberries (my favorite spring fruit), and flavored with dandelions and lemon balm. The dandys and lemon balm give the berries a lighter, lemony, honey flavor.
Sooo. I'm announcing a contest, just for today (ends on April 15th, 4:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.) The quest? To NAME this jam! I need a name that is fun and quirky. Not "Springtime Jam" or "Strawberries with Dandelions and Lemon Balm Jam". Because of the size of our labels, try to limit the name to 20-25 characters. Try not to go over 5 words. 2-3 words are probably better. Our funniest-named jams are Traffic Jam and Sweetheart Spread, just to give you an idea of what I'm looking for.
The WINNER receives a 9 ounce jar of this wonderful new jam, shipped anywhere in the United States! To enter, just respond to this Local Harvest blog or enter on our Facebook page. I'll be checking responses all day while I can as fast as my little hands allow!
Happy Spring and Good Luck!
