Jam at Arax Market

I didn't try them, but today for the first time I noticed a variety of fresh jams in the refrigerated section of Arax Market in Watertown. (Top shelf above all the ikra and grape leaves and things, in plastic containers.) Some I noticed were blackberry, apricot, I think raspberry, and -- I thought chowhounds might be intrigued by this -- rose petal. They all looked like they were homemade and had big chunks of fruit.
I've seen them. I wondered if they were bulk-packed from imports, like the Divina fig preserves at Whole Foods. Not that that's a bad thing, they're made in the country of origin, or where we'd like them to be made, even if it wasn't here...
I've bought a lot of the savory items, made in-house at Arax. All have been great.
I've had some exquisite desserts from Arax (they have so many!). I should try a jam next time. Arax is such a great store. Massis nearby is also good (superb Zaatar bread, one of my favorite things).
I love Arax market...been going there for years. I will recommend that you try the rose petal jam. It's very tasty. I prefer having it with a little butter on toast.
