Food for Thought's Blueberry Lavender Preserves

By Anna Faller | Nov. 25, 2023

While we’re all for a little holiday flavor, bonus points go to seasonal treats we can actually feel good about eating. Enter: Food for Thought’s flavor-packed dressings and sauces. Founded more than two decades ago, this Traverse-based company hangs its hat on scratch-made accouterments, and their organic Blueberry Lavender Preserves make just about anything taste delicious. Made from juicy Michigan berries, which are often sourced from area farmers, this lightly-sweet spread—ingredients: natural cane sugar, pectin, lavender buds, and a generous squeeze of lemon juice—is a perfectly festive combo of fruity and floral. Spread it liberally on your next cheesecake, try it in a wine sauce for poultry, or heck, enjoy it straight from the jar, because jam ought to be a judgment-free zone! Grab a jar of Blueberry Lavender Preserves ($8.79) online at, or use the Store Locator tab to find nearby products.
