Down here in New Zealand we’re in the middle of our summer holidays and that means it’s time to make jam while berries are in season. Those following Xero for a while will know our CTO Craig has become a bit of jam maker the last few years and ended up in a bit of a ‘jam off’ competition last year.
This year it’s even bigger – taking place at Craft 2.0 at the Dowse Art Museum in April and it has an official website – jamoff.co.nz. I’ve just posted about Craig’s jam-making adventures in Awakeri over on their blog.
Eager to get some early feedback (not like when he’s coding!!) he’s shared a couple of little pots of jam with a select few already … these people chosen by some mysterious criteria only known to him (a bit like his coding!). He’s excited that the couple of comments he’s received are lining him up for a win this year!
“@storminwalker definitely a contender for #jamoff2011 no question..richer with a delicious sharpness about it – hit the spot!”
“jam is perfect! color, texture and taste. I could easily eat the jar in one week”
It was great to see some Xero customers last year – come along again this year if you can!
