CURRENTLY ON SALE TO SELL THE LAST OF THE 2016 BATCH. 2017 BATCH TO BE RELEASED IN 1 WEEK. (2.8.17)
RedCamper Picnic Supply staple...No picnic basket or glove compartment should be without.
Our 2nd release, the Absinthe Orange Deliciousness is a new take on the traditional Orange Marmalade. We took the best of the tradition and mixed it up with some adult minded Absinthe to get a perfect blend of orange and anise that is both sweet, and complex. While we didn't pick the oranges ourselves we did all the other chopping, cooking and jarring, bringing you a handcrafted, small batch, artisanal Mason jar of love. We are proud to work directly with the orange orchard, Orange Patch
, in Mesa, Arizona, for our oranges and use fresh USA grown lemons, fresh anise and vanilla, a non GMO pectin (because we believe our foods shouldn't be genetically modified) and then mix in some Absinthe Verte from our local heroes, Leopold Bros
, a Denver based, family owned and operated distillery. While we don't like to brag much, we have already had our lives threatened if we didn't deliver more, it's that good. We think you will like this.
Still scared of Absinthe? Read this for some dispelling of myths.

The story of Deliciousness:
It all started with a backyard overflowing peach tree that begged for peach jamming. 10 years later, on a weekend road-trip to Paonia, Colorado, a hidden oasis of orchards, vineyards and grazing horses we accidentally found Colorado's best kept secret, the source of the most delicious peaches in the state. One year later, we came back with a borrowed truck, a dog, and a day to pick as many peaches as we could. We filled that truck bed with hundreds of pounds of peaches, ripe for the picking, cooked up 500 jars with that 10 year perfected recipe, and the best ingredients made, and were sold out within weeks. Looks like we aren't the only ones that like Deliciousness.. Read about the making of here.
