Andrea Duke gets her pawpaws the way many do. She forages for them.
She and her mother were at Fort Boreman Park in Parkersburg last year picking “West Virginia bananas” when she thought of a new recipe.
Duke used her bounty to make pulp, added cinnamon and sugar, and called it “pawpaw butter.”
Now the product is a favorite in her line of small batch jams and jellies made from locally grown and harvested fruits. Her Parkersburg-based company is cleverly named “In A Jam!”
