This classic marmalade, with plenty of bitter along with the sweet, mirrors our current mood: horrified at what’s going on in the world and unable to recognize our own country. This is not who we’re supposed to be, turning away refugees, separating families at the border, and abandoning allies.
Thankfully there are organizations out there who work hard every day to help immigrants looking for a better life, like the Human Rights Initiative (HRI) of North Texas organization, with whom we’ve partnered to promote their work. HRI provides their immigrant clients with free legal services as well as social services for their families, and has been honored for the work they’ve done. We’re proud to align with them, to do what we can to help the arc of the moral universe bend towards justice.
This marmalade reflects a small portion of the rich tapestry of cultures that make up the U.S., with membrillo, rose water and real Aleppo peppers, in honor of migrants who’ve died trying to escape troubled regions. For those seeking safe harbor, we stand with you, and we will never stop fighting tyranny.
Valhalla, we are coming!
Grapefruit, lemons, sugar, a touch of membrillo, grapefruit vodka, rose liqueur, rose water, Aleppo peppers grown at The Manor, all in a 6 oz. jar.
