Specialty Food Association
Because we love our new Botanical jams so much, perhaps our proudest moment is launching these special new jams and winning Best New Product at the SOFIs within just a few months of launch.
we are so jam happy to be 2022 good food award winners!
Blake Hill wins THREE US Good Food Awards across THREE different Categories - an honor rarely seen in the history of these prestigious national food awards. Our 2022 US Good Food Award Winners are Basil Blueberry Botanical Shrub in the Elixir category, Roasted Garlic Savory Jam in the Pantry category, and Raspberry with Wild Bergamot in the Preserves category.
The Good Food Foundation exists to celebrate, connect, empower and leverage the passionate and engaged, yet often overlooked, players in the food system who are driving towards tasty, authentic and responsible food in order to humanize and reform our American food culture. With over 2,000 entries each year, the competition is fierce for a Good Food Award. Look for the blue seal on the shelves of exceptional grocers like the Good Food Merchants Collaborative. Explore their standards and discover the previous winners.
and the crowd goes wild...
Our small Artisan Jam Team was not surprised that our Roasted Garlic Jam won in the Pantry Category as this jam brings extraordinary flavor to everything from a cheese board to a formal Sunday roast.
Slowly caramelizing fresh garlic and onions with balsamic vinegar, rosemary, cracked black pepper and sea salt creates a deliciously creamy jam with an exuberant umami flavor.
If you visit our Preserves Shop on a Roasted Garlic jam making day, you can smell it's heady aroma from the parkade and cannot help being drawn in!
Not once but twice a winner...
Raspberry with Wild Bergamot
Another big year for our Botanical Jam Collection as our Raspberry Bergamot takes home the win in the Preserves Category, for a second time!
“Our long infusion process helps capture the floral notes of the wild flowers we forage from our Blake Hill meadows. We pair these with the fruits that are ripening as our flowers bloom for jams that perfectly celebrate the seasons” says Vicky.
This Collection has garnered major awards since it launched over two years ago, with Best New Product Win at the SOFIs for Strawberry with Wild Rose; GFA Wins for Gooseberry with Elderflower, and Raspberry with Wild Bergamot.
Basil Blueberry Botanical Shrub
Botanical Shrub’s are perhaps our most successful new product launch yet, with both a Win in the Elixir Category for our Basil Blueberry, and Spicy Jalapeño and Wild Mint both landing coveted finalist positions for 2022 as well.
“We love the smell of fresh organic basil from Honey Field Farm, in Norwich Vermont!” says Vicky “Their basil is the shining ingredient in our Basil Blueberry Shrub. We first perform a hot, and then a long cold, infusion with wild blueberries and apple cider vinegar to capture the delicious heady herbal, fruity essences of these special botanicals to enjoy year round!”
Best Year Yet at the
WORLD MARMALADE AWARDS!
This local English preserve maker has won two Gold Medals, two Silvers and a Bronze at 2021’s World Artisan Marmalade Awards. This is our most successful year yet, and follows five previous years’ of Gold Medal wins for Blake Hill - the US’ leading artisan maker at these prestigious international awards.
