Cheese Please: Berries + Thyme Jam and Cheese


We’ve JUST launched our first blueberry pre-order of the season, Berries + Thyme, and we are so excited about it! We’re taking the last strawberries of Florida strawberry season, and the first berries of Florida blueberry season and making a sweet, herbal jam you can use on anything….especially cheese.

Ok, now for the cheese! Because Berries + Thyme is a sweet jam with a savory component, truly any cheese pairs deliciously. We chose 3 of our favorite types of cheeses to share with you. Any of these types of cheese paired with nut crackers and our limited batch jam will take your wine night to the next level!


While so many cheeses will be delicious with Berries + Thyme, we fall hard for:

• Triple Cream Cheeses (like a Brie)

• Stilton Cheeses (like a Blue)

• Toscano Cheese (a nice hard cheese, usually a Pecorino. Ours is crusted in herbs!)

If you haven’t pre-ordered your Berries + Thyme, hurry! You only have until next Monday to order, and once it’s out for the public, it won’t be around long! You can pre-order it here.

Florida Strawberry Balsamic + Cracked Pepper Jam

The kitchen smells like January in Florida! The strawberries have arrived! For the season, our first strawberry jam flavor to launch is Strawberry Balsamic + Cracked Pepper! It's a perfect balance of ripe strawberries, crisp balsamic, and the cracked pepper leaves your tongue tingling! It tastes really nice with a variety of dishes- whether it's ice cream, a charcuterie board, or a sinfully rich burger with bacon and blue cheese (Keep an eye out for that on our blog!).
