I really dig preserves. When I was baking at Violet, I was a self-proclaimed jam queen, staying late and working on my days off during to make sure I could bottle as much of summer’s flavors as possible. It was borderline maniacal. On the Huffington Post last week, I gave the recipe for the apricot jam I learned while at Violet – it’s really my favorite preserve of all time. Do yourself a favor and make it!
