We created this to coincide with the annual celebration of Ivan Kupala Day in Ukraine, where one of the ancient rituals has young women throwing straw figures into ponds to help them meet the Hot Cowboy of their dreams. Uhh, we’re not really kidding with this.
Anyway. The CU is dedicating this jam to our favorite professor, Franklin Sciacca, who once threw a book at us in Russian class when we used the Ukrainian instead of Russian pronunciation of “молоко.” There may have also been some debate (though not in our mind) as to who the most famous poet laureate of all time is. Hint: Shevchenko.
In the end, Ukraine and its people have prevailed, at least in JamLand. Будьмо!
Shevchenko Sherry Berry
This delectable jam has it all – even we’re not sure how it came together so perfectly, but it did. With raspberries, sugar, champagne, Chambord, sherry, lemon juice, and pectin in a 6oz jar.
