Remember when I raved about this absolutely incredible, raw honey?

 

For as long as I can remember, my family has vacationed on the lake in Northern Michigan every summer. It might just be my most favorite place in the entire world.

 

Can you blame me?

One of our traditions is visiting American Spoon and tasting all of their wonderful preserves, dried fruits and other goodies.

 

Honestly, I have never had better dried cherries or blueberry preserves anywhere, ever. They also have amazing recipes for each product listed on their website!

 

Some of my favorites include:

 

Pumpkin Butter (I was eating this way, way before I ever knew pumpkin butter was cool. I’m talking like, 10 years ago.)

Blueberry Lime Preserves

Dried Cherries (my absolute FAVORITE!!)

Cherry Peach Salsa

Raw Honey

 

That is just a start. See, I have tried every product because if you have ever been to American Spoon, you will know they have samples of absolutely everything. Going there is such a treat. 

 

They have beautiful gift sets and packages that make excellent Holiday gifts – whether it is for a family member, a co-worker, a business, or just yourself. I hope you all can start your Christmas shopping a little early at American Spoon.

 

Any Michigan natives or vacationers out there? I would love to chat and reminisce about my time in Boyne City, Petosky, Harbor Springs and surrounding areas. Drop me a line!

 

 

The very generous people at American Spoon are giving away a Favorite Preserves package to one lucky reader!!

    I think we’ve talked about this before….I spent many years in Petoskey- we used to have a cabin on Walloon. And when I was a kid- I went to camp on Walloon. In those days it was called Huntingdon and Sherwood (the boys camp)
    I was there when American Spoon opened their little storefront. You could smell the goodies cooking for blocks away. I still get up there once a year. And buy their products constantly.

    oh my goodness everything looks wonderful. This place is now built into my vacation plans. I mean, I live in Michigan, how could I miss it??

    I think my first choice would be the ginger pear butter, but really it’s so hard to choose!

    It took me forever to decide what I would most want to try.

    I pick Michigan Maple Cream. Wait, no, Blueberry butter. No, I’ll stick with the Maple Cream… :)

    Michigan native, here! Raised in Ann Arbor, and spent many a summer “Up North”, eating American Spoon products, mostly cherry flavored. Wish I was there now…

    Sour cherry for definite! I moved to Michigan about 4 years ago and have been loving every minute of it. I just explored norther Michigan this summer and had an amazing time. I found a wonderful place called Fustini’s in Traverse City that is a tasting bar for olive oils and balsamics. Check them out online at fustinis.com. Thanks for letting me know about American Spoon…can’t wait to try their goodies!
