{Closed} GIVEAWAY – Smucker’s Orchard’s Finest Gift Basket with $100 Cooking.com Gift Card

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on December 12, 2011

This giveaway is now closed! Winners are Marishannon, Sheryl, Maria! Congrats!

Smucker’s Orchard’s Finest: The Best Fruit from the Best Places…”When you want high quailty preserves with a unique variety of fruit, choose Smucker’s Orchard’s Finest Preserves and enjoy the taste of premium fruit preserves.” Smucker’s expanded there preserves products a few years ago to include the Orchard’s Finest preserves variety. Orchard’s Finest products use only the fruit picked from the height of the season in the regions where the fruit grows best…so the cherries from from Michigan, the strawberries from the Pacific Mountain region. And the flavor certainly shows…it’s so rich and delicious!

Smucker’s Orchard’s Finest Flavors: Coastal Valley Peach Apricot, Fall Harvest Cinnamon Apple, Michigan Red Tart Cherry, Northwest Triple Berry, Northwoods Blueberry, Pacific Mountain Strawberry

(Please pardon the grainy iPhone photo.)

And then there’s the 2 year old…who can’t get enough of the Orchard’s Finest. He’s been known to stick his tiny little fist right into the jar and enjoy a jelly snack. And now that he can open the fridge himself, he just tries to drink from the jar. I’m worried I might be raising a jelly and jam snob here!

A couple of different ways to use your Orchard’s Finest jams –

  • Pancakes, served with the Orchard’s Finest Cinnamon Apple as topping/syrup
  • Serve over shortbread or angel food cake – instead of whipped topping (my kids are dairy free, so this would be a nice sweet topping!)
  • Thin out the Orchard’s Finest Orange Marmalade with some milk and use as dipping sauce for “Orange Chicken Fingers”
  • Serve on a “sausage breakfast sandwich” – I love eating jam with sausage…and put it on a biscuit or English muffin bun…yum!
  • Crackers, cheese and jelly “bar”…with a variety of crackers, soft cheese and the orange, blueberry, raspberry and apricot Orchard’s Finest flavors to assemble your own appetizer.
  • Use the empty jars to gift homemade cocoa, chai tea or other food mixes.

It may not be creative, but biscuits with jelly are definitely fun.

Well, fun??? I don’t know but enjoyable yes…
We use peanut butter and jelly on our Ritz Crackers as a snack. I always have a few types of jelly, jam,preserves in the house and for a fun time we chose, make and eat.

I love Smucker’s on homemade bread but with these new fun flavors I can’t wait to try new recipes!

Jam is actually a key ingredient in a couple of my toddler’s favorite baked treats. This one is the most popular these days: Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars

Happy holidays!
