👋 Jason here: The peach trees in my yard exploded last summer and I gave gobs of them away.

Driving the news: Last week two, cute lil' jars of jam made from the bountiful harvest were left on my porch by my neighbor Karen Heege, owner of Victoria’s Table Artisan Jams and Jellies.

What happened: I paired the sweet preserves with some South Union Bakery bread and couldn’t stop eating.

  • Note to self: You’ve gotta hit the gym an extra time or two this weekend.

Eat my peaches: You can order the jam through Victoria’s Facebook page or emailing [email protected].

  • By appointment at 654 19th St in DSM.
