The “secret ingredient” of Spruce Mountain conserve and chutneys is garam masala—a special blend of selected spices concocted by Molly after her years in the East. All of the spices are roasted and ground in small batches to ensure freshness. The garam masala is then combined with Spruce Mountain’s wild berries, plus sugar, red pepper, fresh ginger, and vinegar, and simmered slowly for up to three hours until the mixture reaches just the right flavor and consistency.

Newly developed products—such as wild blueberry vinegar, jam, and topping—have been designed to appeal to more traditional palates.
