J&M Marketing Communications Switches Roles With Client

This time of year J&M’s client Muirhead Foods does an about face and becomes our go-to source for gifts we need. They could be the same for you. So here’s a shout out for J&M client Muirhead Foods. If you don’t know Muirhead, they are right down the road in Trenton run by the second generation of a food-loving family. You’ve probably seen — maybe even bought their Pecan Pumpkin Butter in Williams Sonoma.

The Pecan Pumpkin Butter made Muirhead a cult classic among foodies. You can also pick up a jar in Princeton stores like Lucy’s Ravioli and, of course, order it online at http://www.muirheadfoods.com.

While you’re online look around to see what else strikes your fancy. The Apricot Jalapeno Jelly has a smooth taste with a “gotcha” bite. Package it with crackers and goat cheese for a nice hostess gift. At the opposite end of the taste spectrum is the Chocolate Raspberry Sauce. Its ingredient list includes Chocolate and Chambord. The sauce works best on ice cream — or by itself at the end of a spoon.

Browse some more and discover Muirhead’s three-mustard combo. The Horseradish Mustard won an award at the Napa Valley Mustard Festival. My taste-arbiter sister-in-law says the Dijon Mustard is the best on the market.

It’s prudent to keep a jar or two for yourself and holiday friends and family. Serve chardonnay wine jelly with a very mild brie and plain table water crackers. That’ll generate Christmas coziness and well-being that the Danish call hygge and the Germans call gemutlich.

The skinny: That’s why Muirhead makes a Spiced Apple Butters with just the juice from apples.

So a gift basket for that corporation you’re courting, cover all the taste bases with Jalapeno Jelly, Dark Chocolate Sauce, and Spiced Apple Butter.
