“Our preserves are a spoonful of flavorful chunks of real fruit accented with unique ingredients that pair well with artisanal cheeses and meats. Our syrups balance natural fruit flavors with sweet accents that transform any cocktail.”

Here’s our nomination for maker couple of the year: Clare comes from a long line of entrepreneurs, starting with her great grandpa, who founded his business during the Great Depression. Her husband Matt ran an organic food co-op before getting his culinary degree and earning his chops at high-end restaurants. They bring you uniquely flavored fruit preserves and syrups that were inspired by Wisconsin’s cheeses and meats--and by good old-fashioned spirits. When they say that their jams and syrups are artisanal and small batch, they really mean it: They have direct relationships with farmers and are up until all hours of the night, slicing, dicing and julienning seasonal, heirloom varietals. Somebody give them a trophy.
