Eleanor’s Best Blackberry Jam

Where to find it: Eleanor’s Best, Garrison
Price: $7.95 for an 8-ounce jar
Description: “When I was a child, I used to raid an enormous stand of wild blackberry bushes behind a potting shed across the road from my Grandma Eleanor. I could not eat enough of them. The first time that I came in with my face painted with blackberry juice, she was horrified and thought I had poisoned myself. I ran out laughing, and brought her back some tied in a handkerchief. She pulled a bucket from a metal cabinet on the side of her kitchen and instructed me to fill it up. From those berries, she whipped together this jam, along with a pie and syrup.”
