The blending of the Western New York Catawba grape with the Southern Tier berries is both unique and delightful. The Catawba’s rose qualities and the red raspberries natural tartness are in full harmony in contrast to the typical jellies that are sold. It is crisp and creative! The raspberries are harvested and squeezed at the peak of their ripeness to capture the goodness of this rare fruit, only available two weeks in July and in early fall in western New York. The Catawba grape is used in Champagne and in sparkling wines. It is creatively used here in combination with the berry and showcases this under utilized grape that is traditionally the last grape to be picked because of its heartiness. The addition of white concord juice rounds out a creative and tasty jelly.
