It wasn't until a week ago that I discovered how good homemade ketchup can be. Wonderfully sweet tomatoes, hint of spice, and just enough tang from apple cider vinegar.
Serendipity Saucy Spreads is a collaborative effort of Kristen & Lynette Cederquist, two Santa Cruz artists with a passion for creating innovative twists on traditional family jam and preserve recipes. Lynette began making jam with her grandmother many many years ago and can remember waking up on summer mornings to lug boxes of fruit that were delivered from family friends. She and her grandmother and later on her mother would spend the morning preparing the fruit and then making delicious jams that they would share with their friends to enjoy for months to come. The tradition was then passed to Kristen, whose first memories go back to picking the ripest plums for plum jam on summer mornings with her grandmother when she was about five or six years old. For the past 15 years Kristen and Lynette have carried on the family tradition of making delicious jams, jellies, and marmalades.
