Regardless, it’s important to make fresh picks into jam as soon as possible to retain their natural flavour. This eliminates the need to add artificial flavourings and colourings, which sometimes ruin the fruit’s natural flavour. Wineries in Margaret River like The Berry Farm (which offer a wide range of products including wines, liqueurs, ports, chutneys, jams and sauces plus many others), make sure their jams are made with the freshest and naturally grown fruits because fresh and organic are simply the best way to go.
If you don’t have the time to travel to Margaret River to taste the distinction, don’t worry. Farm-fresh products are available at stockists within the big city and nearby areas.
