Girl Meets dirt uses the highest quality, locally sourced, organic fruit, unrefined organic cane sugar, a squeeze of organic lemon, and classically prepares the preserves by hand in seasoned copper pans in their Orcas Island Kitchen! They don't use commercial pectin either, instead they rely on time and concentration for set. https://www.girlmeetsdirt.com
