This jelly is the result of serendipity. Our cook was making crab apple jelly when a homeowner came to the kitchen with an armful of tarragon and asked if we wanted it. Finding it hard to say no, we took it. As we were already making crab apple jelly it was easy to drop in some tarragon and see what would happen. Voila! It is wonderful!!!
This jelly has the tartness of crab apples and the slightly licorice flavour of the tarragon – pretty special.
Uses: This is lovely for breakfast items, filling some bakery items like thumbprint cookies, and glazing the top crust of an apple pie when it first comes out of the oven!

We use our profits to make fruit snacks for food programs in the city that support those who are in need. Over the last 2 years with the manpower of wonderful volunteers we have made and donated about 27,000 individual snacks. These are apple chips, fruit leather, and apple sauce tubes.
We also provide work experience and volunteer opportunities for those who want the opportunity to contribute to others. This is usually with the apple snack program. Some tasks are perfect for those who have a variety of limitations.
When it comes to picking we will priorize those who are no longer able to care for their fruit trees.
We use local fruit that grows in people's yards instead of letting it go to waste. We also work with other groups in the city who want local fruit for their charity or food programs. By speaking to homeowners we are able to educate them about the apple maggot infestation and proper disposal of their yard waste. By teaching preserving classes we help homeowners find ways of using their own fruits.
We compost and recycle whenever possible
