Oregon Growers and Shippers Fruit Spreads, Butter and Chutneys
There’s something for everyone in this delicious assortment of preserves. Serve with pancakes, waffles or crackers, or as condiments. We enjoyed Cranberry Pear Fruit Spread made with Oregon-grown fruit and a variety of spices. Not too Sweet Apple Butter has a homemade flavor with just the right spice combination. Other varieties include Pear and Hazelnut Fruit Spread, Vanilla Pear Butter, Apple Fennel Chutney, and Spiced Cider Spread. About $5.50 to $6 for a 12-ounce jar at New Seasons, Strohecker’s and Wizer’s in the Portland area; Panzanella Bakery and The Gift House in Hood River; Chauteau Lin in Ashland; and Newport Avenue Market in Bend.
