Why Jam is Best Enjoyed in the Summer

Feel More Energized During Hot Summer Days

In the last several weeks, the Pacific Northwest experienced some of the hottest temperatures it ever had. This summer is sizing up to be one of the hottest, making it even more important to stay cool, hydrated, and energized.

Maury Island jam is considered to be a summer food for several reasons. First, the fruit used in each of its jam, preserves, and fruit topping comes from a limited harvest of berries. Each berry is picked at the peak of ripeness during the summertime to give the best flavor possible.

June and July are when nearly all berries are in season. Favorites such as boysenberries, blueberries, and raspberries taste the best during the summer.

Not only does jam taste delicious during the summer, but it also gives people a way to stay energized. Feeling tired on a hot day is a familiar feeling. When the sun is in the sky, a person’s immune system must work hard to protect its skin from harsh light and high temperatures. Having a strong immune system is vital during the summer, and eating jam can help.

Berries include high amounts of antioxidants which help strengthen immune systems. This assists in the body’s ability to deal with high amounts of heat and sunlight. For a high amount of antioxidants, marionberries, boysenberries, blueberries, and raspberries, are all great options.

Maury Island Farm includes every part of the berry in its jam, leading to a vitamin-rich end product. These vitamins are paired with a small amount of sugar and are a great way to feel energized throughout the day. Anyone planning on spending the day in hot weather should consider eating jam and fruit in the morning.

This summer, Maury Island Farm hopes it can help make the hot weather more enjoyable. Find a flavor, and start feeling the benefits of vitamins, antioxidants, and ripe berry flavor.
