Heirloom Recipes: From Amy Deaver at Lemon Bird Handmade Jams

Amy Deaver is the owner & jam maker at Lemon Bird Handmade Jams. I found her delightfully packaged and beautifully designed jams online and instantly fell in love. I adore their simple design, beautiful photography and their dedication to using seasonal and local fruits. Here is what Amy had to say:

What recipe are you sharing with us?
I found this recipe in my Grandmother’s file, and I also scanned in the front of the recipe book.


What makes this recipe meaningful to you?
year when we eat this meal and everyone in the family loves it.  It’s a really special day and time for all of us to be together since we all live far apart.  On Christmas day we all cook together, eat together, and celebrate together.

What photos are you sharing with us?
To save my family (and self) the shots of us in our PJ’s all day on Christmas Day – I’ll instead include a photo of the Great Snow Storm of 2008.  We live in the mountains of Southern California and last year we received about 3 feet of snow in one week.  We were actually snowed away from home for a few days.  Here’s a photo of some of our beautiful snow coming down.

Special thanks to Amy. We hope you’ll check out their delightful line of handmade jams at lemonbirddesign.com!
