Christine Ferber is the first name in jam from Alsace, and we first mentioned her last year upon discovering that Borne Confections (currently closed; soon to open in a new location) would sell a side of the jam for $0.75 if you ordered a croissant. Unfortunately, they wouldn't sell me the whole jar, and neither would db Bistro Moderne where they also offer it as side to accompany the morning pastry basket if you dine in the restaurant. But luckily for all us Christine Ferber jam-lovers, the recently opened Epicerie Boulud, sells the whole jar. And in more flavors than one. Imagine a glorious apricot number with halved vanilla beans tucked into the jar, apples scented with cinnamon, plums with red wine, and a picture-perfect classic jam made with strawberries from Alsace, all equally addictive. Ingredients are pure and simple: fruit, sugar, apple pectin, and citrus. The $19 price tag per jar is undeniably steep, but in a city of $15 cocktails.
