Why We Love It

Raphael Guillo Lohan discovered his passion for jams while working on an apple orchard in his native Brittany. A bumper crop of apples left enough surplus for a trial batch of apple jam, and Raphael was hooked. Now he harvests organically-grown fruits from his own orchards, as well as a small selection of citrus fruits grown in the warmer regions of Europe. Each batch is made over an open fire in a big copper cauldron in his kitchen. A very short cooking time ensures the freshness and purity of fruit flavor that these jams are famous for. Each jar is lovingly adorned with a beautiful label drawn by Raphael's aunt. When Raphael came to Boston in the spring of 2004 he saw stacks of his confiture lining the shelves of our store. For those of us who had been happily eating his jam since we first started importing it, it was a little like meeting a culinary superstar and we were so pleased to be able to thank him in person for mornings filled with apricot jam, cherry jam, raspberry-grapefruit jam....

This preserve is nothing like the commercial strawberry jams. It brings back childhood memories of squatting low to the ground amidst the warm, dense aroma of the tiny strawberry plants and eating the lush fruit as we fill our basket.

    Smooth and Classic French

    These preserves are sweet and smooth and very much classic French as if having with my breakfast in a small Parisian Hotel along with tea or a lovely cappuccino and assorted French breasts pastries. If you want the French Confiture, this is it.
