Rica Barreja is LunaGrown’s own blend of fresh fruits kissed with natural vanilla. The name Rica Barreja means ‘Wealthy Blend’. We have chosen specific fruits that complement one another and give this jam it’s sweet, rich, smokey flavor, reminiscent of leather chairs, fine woven tapestry, and spiced rum.
Rica Barreja is special not only in the combination of its fruits, its cooking process, and of course its flavor. This special jam is only offered by LunaGrown. This is our signature Jam! Anyone can combine fruits but it takes thoughtfulness and consideration to create a jam rich and balanced in flavor while retaining the fruit’s essential nutrients.
This jam is so satisfying that we almost wanted to eat it on its own, unadulterated and out of the jar. It seems a bit decadent, but catch me on a bad day, and I might be on the couch with a jar of LunaGrown Jam and a spoon.” ~ Elizabeth Segran, Contributing Writer, Fast Company,
As with all our products LunaGrown relies on the natural sugars of the fruit for the bulk of our sweetness. You won’t find any added artificial ingredients in any of our products. By creating our jam in this fashion we help you to discover new ways of enjoying, and serving jams.
We have heard of many uses for this jam other than the traditional application on toast. We have been told it’s wonderful in plain yogurt, on ice cream, over French toast, served with cheese and many others. Our favorite way to serve this jam is with a spoon. Just a spoon.
