New line from Lollipop Tree

New product review on Lollipop Tree's organic scone mixes and jams:

The scone mixes (there are seven) make enough for a dozen scones. The mix is basically the organic flour, leavening and any seasoning; customers add butter, eggs and liquid for a product that's mostly homemade. Super easy instructions, minimal packaging. Great taste. We made the Raspberry White Chocolate scones. Other selections: Lemon Poppy Seed, Chocolate Hazlenut, Blueberry Ginger, along with the more conventional cream, oatmeal and apricot-cranberry.

The jam (eight varieties) we reviewed was raspberry. Beautiful red color, lovely flavor and very fresh. Maybe it was the organic berries, but this was good stuff. Others: Meyer lemon, strawberry rhubarb and a blood orange-cranberry.

We didn't get any of the pepper jellies, but they look intriguing: Roasted Garlic Black Olive, Wasabi Lime, Vidalia Onion, to name a few.
