The Wood'n Spoon
The Wood’n Spoon features handmade jams, jellies, berry syrups, and baked goods. Some of these are made from wild berries, which are picked in the Keweenaw. Others are grown on their own 20-acre pesticide free farm. One of their most popular items is Wild Thimbleberry Jam (see photo 2). Thimbleberries only grow in a few places in the U.S., and you will often see locals picking these along the roadside when they ripen, for making their own jam. Thimbleberries are related to raspberries and blackberries, but the seeds are smaller, the fruit is softer, and they taste quite different. These make a delicious jam.
The shop also has other local products, not made by the Wood’n Spoon, such as maple syrup and honey. Woodenware may also be purchased here, as well as other miscellaneous items.
The Wood’n Spoon is open from mid May to mid October.
What to buy: Stop at the Wood’n Spoon for their jams, jellies and berry syrups. Thimbleberry jam is a true local traditional jam, so you will bring a little of the UP home with you from your vacation if you purchase a bottle of this. One of my favorites is strawberry-rhubarb, and I always purchase one or two bottles if they have some in stock. Other jams you my find are raspberry, strawberry, blackberry, blueberry, and huckleberry. Jellies include strawberry, currant, chokecherry, crabapple, and blackberry. They also have fruit butters such as plum, pumpkin, and apple. Their homemade syrups include thimbleberry, raspberry, blueberry, strawberry, cherry, and apple.
What to pay: These items are pricier than your average grocery store jams, jellies, and syrups, but the quality is high and the products are delicious.
Address: PO Box 391, US 41
Directions: The shop is located in Mohawk, about 2 miles from Calumet along highway US 41.
