Wild Thimbleberry Jam
Our enchantingly unique and aromatic thimbleberry jam is made from these brilliant red berries that we find dotting Vancouver Island trails and woodlands. This luscious jam captures the sweet-tartness and bright colour of the berries we harvest around Vancouver Island’s forests. Drizzle it on fresh-baked muffins or ice cream as an exceptional treat.
DELICIOUSNESS CRAFTED FROM MOTHER NATURE’S BOUNTY
With delicate skin and vibrant colour, thimbleberries, are reminiscent of raspberries but with softer seeds and a diminutive size. People love their sweet-tart flavour and honey-like aftertaste.
When you see a thimbleberry, you’ll understand why they got their name—they really do look like little red sewing thimbles. These berries are known to be immune-boosting and rich in antioxidants and vitamins. The roots and leaves have been used as an anti-inflammatory tea and topical wound healer.
