Best Jam in Los Angeles
Get into a Jam

Artisan chocolatier Valerie Gordon of Valerie Confections added jams and preserves to her line of sweets last summer. Strawberry-rhubarb and strawberry-vanilla bean are among her top sellers; each provides a burst of flavor and real pieces of fruit. The organic strawberries (usually Gaviotas) come from the Hollywood and Santa Monica farmer' markets. Care for a recipe? Gordon and home canning expert Kevin West teach classes on preserving.
