Blake Hill Preserves | Windsor, VT
Although Vicky Allard comes from a long line of British jam-making hobbyists, she hadn’t planned to make it her career. But after leaving their corporate life in Manhattan for the green acres of Vermont, she and husband Joe Hanglin began turning their farm’s bumper crop of berries into preserves. Friends raved, a local grocer offered to test-market their product, and in 2009, they launched Blake Hill Preserves. This particular offering was created in 2016 in partnership with famed cheese maker Jasper Hill Farm (another Editors’ Choice Food Awards winner): It’s the perfect match for Jasper Hill’s Bayley Hazen Blue cheese. But the combination of plums, warm spices, and port also make it uniquely food-friendly. Try it with yogurt or oatmeal, with ice cream, or baked into cookies."
