I knew Taylor Swift grew up on a Christmas tree farm. But the grapes? That was news to me. But Swift told Parade magazine it was those grapes that inspired her to start making her own raspberry jam. And just how good is this jam? “I don’t mean to brag, but it’s so good, you could just eat it with a spoon,” she said. “You can put it on anything. You can dip pretzels into it.” It all started with Swift’s mom making her own grape jam. “When I was younger, we had a grape arbor, and my mom would go out and pick grapes and make grape jam in the sink — boil it, put it in jars and give it away as gifts. So I started making raspberry jam, and it is so good,” she said. So if you’re on Swift’s Christmas list this year, I’m guessing you’ll get her jam. And maybe even a spoon.
