The jams of Climont are artisanal jams produced in Alsace, in the Valley of the Bruche. At the head of the workshop, Fabrice Krencker, elected best jam maker in France in 2010 by the Confrérie de la Marmite d’Or. It’s well worth a visit and a tasting, isn’t it?
The Climont jam workshop is a bit lost but worth a detour for all jam lovers. Just the smell when you arrive at the parking lot makes you want to… They are made only with sugar and fruit, nothing else. Most of the fruit is purchased during the season and then frozen, so that jams can be made all year round. It is possible to visit the small laboratory where the jams are cooked and to have very interesting explanations. We even have some tips on how to make perfect jams at home!
Then, let’s go for the tasting! The jams of Climont count more than 35 kinds of jams and jellies, that you can taste all. They are delicious. The jar costs between 6,50€ and 6,80€, it’s not cheap but the quality has a price.
My favorite? Cruelty. Yes, you read that right: the jam is made with sugar and fruits that are dried in the sun. It is not cooked but it keeps very well too. The result is tasty, with a very pronounced fruit taste. I left with a jar of raspberry jam and one with rhubarb and elderflowers. A marvel!
