Operating out of Toronto's historic St. Lawrence
Market, A Bisket-A Basket has earned a reputation as one of Toronto's
most celebrated boutique food creators and manufacturers. From our
packed location at the market's downstairs entrance, we offer as
many as 100 flavors of homemade jams and condiments, virtually
all of them available for sampling. It's one of the busiest spots
in the building, and a ritual Saturday morning stopover for devoted
fans who come from as far away as Europe to stock up on seasonal
specials and new inventions.
|| Today, A Bisket-A Basket has a reputation
for producing creative and unique flavor combinations. In addition
to our original signature jams, we offer a variety of
chutneys - Moroccan Tomato, Mango Kiwi Jalapeno, and
Pear Clementine to name just a few; a top-selling line of savoury
jellies such as Margarita Jalapeño; and a variety
of pepper jellies. Another popular line is a collection
of alcohol-infused jams based on cocktails such as the
Bermuda Rum Swizzle and Pina Colada. With the inspiration of
"North of the Border, Happy Hour starts at Breakfast",
our BREAKFAST BUZZ (Jam) COLLECTION is a perfect way
to start the day with Cocktails that have become delicious jams!
Express your love and romance
all year around (and not just on Valentines Day) with our ROMANTIC
MESSENGER (Jam) COLLECTION. With over 30 quotes to chose from,
let us help you deliver your special sentiments, emotions and thoughts.
Another way to say "I thought of You" is through our original
and creative ZODIAC (Jam) COLLECTION. Each of the 12 signs
come with 12 allocated jams and a richly illustrated, Canadian inspired,
descriptive Gift Box Set.
The newest addition to our family
line are low-sugar Xylitol sweetened jams for those
with special nutritional needs- such as diabetics. Xylitol,
a natural sugar alcohol sweetener made from corn and discovered
over a century ago, has historically had very limited use
as a result of its high cost. Considered one of the finest
sweeteners on the market with no aftertaste, Xylitol has
little affect on blood glucose levels because body metabolizes
it independently of insulin. As a result, it is a true breakthrough
for those who need to carefully monitor what they eat!
Current Xylitol sweetened jams include
Strawberry Rhubarb, Raspberry Rhubarb, Tart Raspberry Lemon, Plum
Blood Orange, Rhubarb, Red Lavender Strawberry Merlot, Black and
Blue Juniper Gin, Apricot Ginger, and Sour Cherry Lemon. All are
available for sampling at the St Lawrence Market location, and
will soon be offered to specialty food retailers across the GTA.
