Artisan Edibles- Jams and Jellies and Antipasto OH MY!

Artisan Edibles- Jams and Jellies and AntipastoI am a great lover of well made foods, adorable little jars, and “slap you in the face” quality & flavor. I can now attest that Artisan Edibles bottles up all of those things and more. Made naturally and handcrafted on Vancouver Island, their product list will blow your mind. Rhubarb and sour cherry or Meyer lemon chutneys, summer berry ambrosia, blueberry and lavender jelly, quince mostarda, and the list goes on and on. Not only did I receive a box of beautifully packaged goodness, there was also a rather fantastic recipe book with some very mouthwatering suggestions which you can all enjoy here by choosing the recipe tab up top.

So let’s get into it….

Champagne Rose Petal Jelly

Just look at this jar- it really is incredible and for the first time in my life I thought that it was almost too beautiful to eat! Of course I did though, and it was the strangest and most wonderful combination of the unmistakable taste of rose petals with a subtle back note of champagne. It’s as tasty as it is gorgeous.

Apple Fig & Ginger Chutney

Figs are one of my favorite things on the planet and this is a combination using them that I would never have explored on my own. The apple gives it a fresh crispness, but the candied ginger & fig flavors are absolutely the stars in this chutney. The texture is fantastic and the soft surprise of whole raisins just add to the rich creaminess.

Pomegranate Hot Pepper Jelly

I love everything about this product! The colour, the texture, the sweet pomegranate, and best of all, that hot pepper heat that creeps up on you. This with a little cream cheese on a cracker simply cannot be beat.

Raspberry Cardamon Jelly

This jelly, besides it’s incredible deep burgundy colour, has a floral flavor that will definitely make you do a double take. I love the cardamom and they’re certainly not shy with it. Since trying it I’ve started a list of things I can cook using this distinct and really terrific jar of goodness.


I’ve saved my favorite for last. Yes, that picture is an empty jar, and yes, I ate it all in one sitting. Huge chunks of Albacore tuna, whole pearl onions, thick slices of beautiful mushrooms…. oh man, this stuff is incredible. It has just the right vinegar tang and the veggies are all perfectly crisp. This is not one those horrible mushy, tomato paste like antipastos that are all over the market- this is a whole other thing. You really have to try it. I know it would go well with fresh bread, crackers, etc but I ate it right out of the jar with a spoon. I’m not at all kidding.

The Artisan Edibles site has a list of retailers that carry their products and also gives information about ordering gift boxes or larger orders for weddings, parties, etc, so check it out.

A big wow and thank you to Maureen at Artisan Edible for taking simple and pure ingredients and turning them into something remarkable.
