Bloomsbury Jam-Off 2015


Each year we offer an amuture jam-off at Bloomsbury.

The third Bloomsbury Jam-Off  is scheduled for Sunday, 27 September 2015!  Yes, Jam-Off (amateur jam-off).  A panel of jam-loving judges will be selecting the top three entries in the entire universe.  Well, the top three of those j-petitors(contestants) who make a submission to be judged.  The top three entries will be awarded a Jam-Off Certificate and Prize.

Fresh peach jam being made at Bloomsbury Inn

Homemade jams are on the breakfast table every time breakfast is served at Bloomsbury Inn in Camden, South Carolina.  Peach Margarita with hot biscuits from Grandmother Sally Rose’s iron skillet…Strawberry Fig with chocolate croissants…Pineapple Spice with hot crescents…

Inn guests are always asking for recipes, regional secrets and tips.  In fact, many want to learn how to can jam and jellies.  So, in 2013 the competition was opened for j-petitors to submit their best jar of jam and recipe to compete in the first Jam-Off.  Today, you can submit yours.

So, j-petitors start canning now and be sure to have your j-tastic submission in by 15 September 2014.Beautiful jars of blueberry jam
