A taste reminiscent of days gone by in a wonderfully fresh fruit spread.

The strawberries that go into Scandinavian Delights' Strawberry Rhubarb Fruit Spread are grown in Denmark and harvested late in the season, when they have had more sun and are not as large. The slow ripening process provides great depth of flavor. Only the red part of the rhubarb is used, brining a tartness to the jam that perfectly complements the sweetness of the strawberries. You'll find chunks of both throughout this amazingly fresh fruit spread that is the ultimate topping for your morning breakfast breads.
Sugar, Rhubarb, Strawberry, Water, Red grape concentrate, Pectin, Calcium chloride, Citric acid and potassium sorbate as a preservative.
Since she was a young girl, Elizabeth Lie, founder and owner of Elki Gourmet, has had a passion for great food. Little did she know that her passion for the food world would be fulfilled by a company her father, Gunnar, started "unintentionally" in 1984. Her father was already the head of Norpro, a successful kitchenware business. He had no intention of starting another business until a couple of people from Scandinavia asked that he help them sell their homemade preserves from Denmark under the label Scandinavian Delights. After declining a couple times, he agreed to take the preserves to a gourmet products trade show. Little did he know, the preserves would sell so well and create a following. Elki was born!

Years went by and the Scandinavian Delight Preserves' sales grew and grew. During her summer break in college, Elizabeth helped out at Elki and realized she wanted to be a part of the gourmet food industry. In 1995 she came to work at Elki full time and, after a few years, bought the company.

Elki uses only the highest quality ingredients to create the finest specialty food products, both importing and creating original recipes domestically. They maintain a solid reputation in the gourmet food industry and are the recipients of several national awards for their products.

ABOUT SCANDINAVIAN DELIGHTS:

For over 170 years, Scandinavian Delight spreads from ELKI have been made in exactly the same way, from the same time-honored traditional recipes. The result is a wonderful, truly delicious home-made taste. Starting with choice, ripe fruit and fresh berries, picked wild and by hand whenever possible, these spreads are prepared slowly and gently, without boiling. This allows the fruit and berries to retain more of their natural flavor, color and sweetness and requires substantially less sugar to be added than regular preserves. Large morsels of fruit or whole berries infuse each jar.
