Organic Cara Cara Vanilla Bean Fruit Spread
This jam is an eccentric ‘creamsicle': cara cara orange + vanilla bean. It may not seem like that strange of a fruit or marmalade, yet the first cara cara was discovered at the hacienda caracara in Valencia, Venezuela in 1976 and is believed to have developed as a spontaneous bud mutation on a Washington naval orange tree.
The cara cara is a mutation that botanists call bud sport. In botany, a bud sport is a part of a plant that shows morphological differences from the rest of the plant. The cause for these fantastic freaks is generally thought to be a chance genetic mutation.

The journey of a piece of fruit from flower to jar touches many hands: at the farm, within Sqirl's kitchen, and finally to wherever a jar is squirreled away. Sqirl jam directly supports over 40 fruit farmers in California. Sqirl is dedicated to preserving unique varieties of produce—varieties with history and flavor vibrancy that are rare to find in the world of jam...in the world in general. This is so important to Sqirl: the way that rare fruits keep them engaged and working closely with farmers doing their extraordinary work, and in turn, how customers allow for that connection to continue to grow and for these fruits to continue to have a reason to be grown.
