Bloomsbury Jam-Off


Beautiful baskets of lemon figs waiting to be processed in to jam.

The second Bloomsbury Jam-Off is scheduled for Sunday, 14 September 2014! Yes, Jam-Off (amateur jam-off). The top three entries will be awarded a Jam-Off Certificate and Prize.

Inn guests are always asking for recipes, regional secrets and tips. In fact, many want to learn to can. 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. It is difficult to believe that has been a year ago, but it is time for the second Jam-Off.

Be sure to follow the rules for the second Jam-Off:
* All submissions must reach Bloomsbury not later than 8 September 2014
Bloomsbury Inn, 1707 Lyttleton Street, Camden SC 29020
* Each submission must be made in a pint jar or smaller, home canned (NO commercially produced items please)
* Unfortunately we cannot accept refrigerator jams
* No entry fee
* Acceptable submissions include jam, jelly, preserves, fruit sauces and fruit spreads
* Each submission must be accompanied by a card containing:
J-petitors Name, Address, Telephone Number and Email Address (email addresses will not be shared/sold)
Title of Submission
Category of Submission (jam, jelly, preserve, sauce, spread)
Recipe (this recipe will be shared upon request…so please do not send Auntie Margaret’s Secret Recipe)
* Be sure to tell your friends they should also make a submission (ok — they don’t have to be friends)

So, j-petitors start canning now and be sure to have your j-tastic submission in by 8 September 2014.
