One of the most common questions we get at our stand is "What is a tayberry?" The Tayberry is a cross between a Blackberry and a Red Raspberry and has qualities from both. It was originally developed in Scotland and named after the Tay river there. For our Tayberry Fruit Spread, we work with local Northwest farmers who pick tayberries by hand - they can't be machine harvested, which makes them a rare delicacy.
Ingredients: Tayberries, sugar, lemon juice and pectin.
Delicious! Could eat whole jar in one sitting
I tried this on a friend’s recommendation as we were passing through Pike Place while I was on a business trip. I had never heard of a Tayberry before and it did not disappoint! It’s tied for my favorite now, with beach plum spread. I had two jars sent to NY for me and one of them is already gone.
