Apricot is one of those flavors we don't need to explain – but our Orchard Apricot jam is special, infused with the literally hard to crack almond flavored kernels within.

Anyone who has had a luscious, toothsome spoonful of apricot jam knows the magic these beauties can do with your tastebuds. Apricots, however, aren't something we can easily grow in the islands - but they thrive in the warmer summers east of the Cascade Mountains of Washington State.

So we've partnered with a small family orchard that's been growing fruit in the Okanogan Valley right across Highway 20 for decades – to bring you a classic – apricot jam made in the French confiture style, made with the most delicious, naturally grown apricots that warm central Washington sun can provide.

We pair them with organic unrefined cane sugar, organic lemon for balance, and their own kernels for nuance and a hint of almond flavor. We painstakingly crack open each pit to harvest the kernel, which we then gather in a sachet to infuse the jam. This jam is a beauty, don't miss it.

Our Story

Girl Meets Dirt Heritage Preserves are inspired by the long history of orchard keeping on Orcas Island– and a craving for the highest quality, locally sourced, organic fruit preserves nature and careful craft can provide.

Our throwback fruit preserves are made in an old-school style that emphasizes structure and pure, ripe, naturally grown fruit. But we don't fuss– our ingredient lists are short and sweet.

We never use commercial pectin. We believe organic, island heritage fruit, speaks for itself. We pair single varietal fruit with unrefined organic cane sugar, fresh squeezed organic lemon juice, and classically prepare it by hand in

A natural pairing for cheese, our preserves upgrade a cheese platter to sublime. They bring a sense of gravitas to any meal– an appreciation for tradition: for the bounty the land provides, and the simple human ingenuity that inspired us long ago, to preserve it.
