Kristen & Lynette


Event: Wine & Food Series at Annie Glass

Join us this Saturday, June 30th, 2012 for our weekly Wine and Food Series featuring Lynette Cederquist from Serendipity Saucy Spreads.  Lynette is excited to be sampling many of Serendipity’s newest seasonal flavors which include: Plum & Apricot, The Darker Side of Strawberry Preserves – a combination of strawberries and reduced balsamic vinegar, Blackberry Sage Preserves, and their ever popular Hungarian Pepper Jam.

Serendipity Saucy Spreads began as a collaborative effort of two Santa Cruz entrepreneurs, Kristen and Lynette Cederquist, who have a passion for creating unique jams, jellies, and preserves. They have recently turned a longtime family tradition of preserving into a successful jam-making business. Lynette began making jam with her mother and grandmother many years ago. She has fond memories of waking up on summer mornings to aromatic boxes of fresh-picked fruit, and watching as bubbling cauldrons of sugar and fruit magically became sparkling jars of jam.  Today, Kristen & Lynette carry on the tradition of capturing the flavor and essence of the beautiful fruit grown by our local farmers.  Their jams are truly special and quite unique.

Preserved Lemons are ready!

Preserved lemons have returned!!  They’ve been sitting and curing since early April but now they are finally ready!

We love using these little gems with chicken, lamb, veggies, and in soup.  Need a recipe idea?  Try our recipe for Preserved Lemons and Lamb!

You can find this amazing jar of lemons at the Serendipity Marketplace.

Until next time,
