Unique treats, gifts and baskets for unique people.
The Mercantile in Toronto's Roncesvalles Village is your go-to shop for everyday luxuries, with a thoughtfully curated selection of gourmet food items, kitchen accessories, gifts and gift baskets to help you live, give, and entertain in style.
A couple of weeks ago, a woman from North Carolina came into the shop. She was staying with friends in the neighbourhood and was telling them about bacon jam as something commonly found in her neck of the woods and her friends figured if anyone would have it we would. And we have had it before but not for a while now. Thankfully, that changed this week with the arrival of this product line from Terrapin Ridge Farms (terrapins are turtles, hence the title of this post!).
Each one is a beautifully executed combination of flavours that pairs brilliantly with charcuterie, cheeses, even roasts. Next time you make a grilled cheese sandwich, spread a layer of the Hot Pepper Bacon Jam in there for an extraordinary taste treat!
You'll find the Terrapin Ridge line on the shelf above the other jams and jellies to your right as you enter the store.
