Via self-taught chef and food blogger Apeksha, who was introduced to the ambrosial stuff on a vacation in France and decided to replicate it back home, with excellent results. She also makes Kiwi Whiskey Orange Marmalade, Pumpkin Butter with Cointreau, a bunch of non-alcoholic jams, granola mixes and flavored nuts. These can be customized for taste or allergies and come in pretty packaging. The sweetest spot: if you need 2-3 bottles, she’ll make a seasonal fruit jam for you, even if it’s not on the menu.
