Hello there. My name is Elizabeth Segran and I live in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
I’ve always loved jam. Growing up in Paris, I have fond memories of going berry picking during the summer and watching my mother make large vats of strawberry jam. Now, when I’m feeling blue, I find infinite comfort in going to the local farmer’s market, finding beautiful fruit and creating interesting jams. I love putting them into little bottles and giving them to my friends as gifts.
Since I started this blog, I’ve had the opportunity to meet wonderful jam makers around the country and taste their delicious concoctions. I’ve loved hearing about the fascinating reasons they have chosen to devote their lives to the craft of jam-making. I am also a judge at the Good Food Awards and I look forward to tasting the most delicious, sustainably produced preserves this country has to offer. Please feel free to contact me if you would like me to review your jam or if you’d just like to say a friendly hello.
