In Praise of Marmalady's Jams & Jellies
I don't recommend products I haven't personally tried, but ones I have tried and enjoyed, especially when I've received good customer service, I like to recommend. And so I'm happy to report I was very, very pleased with the products I recently received from Marmalady's in Portland, Oregon.
At the Tea Expo I sampled (and went home with) a small jar of Marmalady's Rose Tea Jelly, which was perfectly delicious and such a treat. When I placed my order for the full-sized jar (just $4), I also ordered some of the Pear Lemon Marmalade with Organic Green Tea ($5), and it is just incredible. I had some on wheat toast for breakfast and loved the subtle green tea taste combined with the pears. Yum-o, as a certain cooking diva might say.
I was also impressed that despite the modest size of my order, the shipment arrived very promptly, was well-packaged, included a hand-written thank-you note ... and I saw that Marmalady's subsidizes the cost of postage, since I paid several dollars less than it actually cost them to mail this. I think some of my friends may be getting Pear Marmalade in their Christmas packages this year! Visit marmaladys.com for more information.
