Welcome to Echoes of Summer
Echoes of Summer, a small family-run
business based in Chatham, Cape Cod, produces certified organic
artisan quality fruit spreads, fruit butters, conserves and chutneys.
All our ingredients are certified organic and we hand select all
the fruit and vegetables, which are harvested at the peak of ripeness.
We cook them in a special way to maintain their integrity and allow
the natural flavor and sweetness of the fruit to take center stage.
This compelling flavor is captured in a jar for "The Taste
of Summer All Year Round".
Is that it? Not really. For if you're a newcomer
to this site, and to my 'family treasures', you - and your taste
buds - are in for a pleasant surprise
Everything you can see (and later taste) at my
on-line shop is the culmination of a thirty-year love affair. As
far back as I can remember, I have been exploring new ways to get
the fullest flavors I can from the freshest ingredients.
In many ways, it stems from my passion to provide
the very best for my family and with good reason, as you
will see from my story. I am just glad I eventually listened to
my boys, when they kept insisting I bring my products to market.
You could say that what you have here is the best
of both worlds ~ a range of great-tasting organic products
all of my spreads are sodium-free, gluten-free, virtually fat-free
and therefore guilt-free pleasures.
I prefer to put it another way
What you also have is the first step in your own
personal gastronomic adventure that's whether you simply indulge
in the tastes (and ponder just how the Habanero pepper jelly
does that thing to your taste buds and whether those Perfect
Pecans can really be legal or maybe go beyond the suggestions
on my labels, and explore how to use my products as ingredients
in your own creations.
By now, you probably have an idea why I say, "we're
not just another jam company". My husband Carl teases me that
I am obligated to tell customers that it is ok to put our spreads
They have my permission!
Whether you see them as family treasures or as
guilt-free pleasures, enjoy!
PS I do want to keep hearing from you ~
I particularly liked that idea of using my Apple Butter as a sweetener
in green tea ~ so please keep the suggestions and questions coming.
When traveling through our great area you may want to stay in a vacation home or bed & breakfast.
