In a few days the Autumnal Equinox will happen. Some of you may be experiencing glorious Indian Summer days. Others of us...are not! The season has turned here in Portland, OR & it is evident in dark mornings, increasingly darker soccer practice times, & the desire to make soups, stews, & pies. If you are thinking of sending your friends any Pink Slip Jam as a holiday gift, you may want to consider ordering some now. There is still plenty of stone fruit available, figs are abundant, & apples are coming in by the truck-load. Warming spices like cinnamon & cardamom are calling our name! As these days get shorter & time seems to fly by, we suggest a week or two for small orders & a little more advance notice for larger holiday orders. Hallowe'en, Dia de los Muertos, Thanksgiving...it all comes along PDQ, so think of choosing some PSJ for gift giving!
