09 Mar Badger® Bow Jam – On Toast! (No Special Paddling Skills Required)
According to Discover Canoeing: A Complete Introduction to Open Canoeing by James Weir a “bow jam” is “a stroke that will turn a canoe very sharply. When a paddle blade catches or jams under the canoe it will unbalance the canoe and turn it around. The bow jam harnesses this reaction and turns it into a very powerful paddle stroke.”
So in celebration of our first Canoecopia
– and just for fun – we did up a few Bow Jams
for some of our favourite paddling friends. No – we didn’t get out in a canoe for our Bow Jam
– the lakes are still frozen here in Muskoka at this time of the year. But we still managed to come up with a number of Bow Jams
, just the same.

, our Badger® Bow Jam
is NOT made from canoe bows, but from delicious strawberries & rhubarb*
! Inspired by Fiona’s love of word play and thus named after the “bow jam
” paddle stroke (a.k.a. running pry), as seen in the video examples below, our “Bow Jam”
has been described as follows:
“Badger® Bow Jam: The fast and light flavour of the strawberries are perfectly balanced with the sharp, pivoting flavour of the rhubarb. Our Bow Jam will quickly turn any meal into a tasty treat. A delight to any canoeist’s style and taste buds – naturally it goes quite well with bannock!“
