Our Flavors

Many people ask, what is the difference between jam and jelly?  Jelly only uses the juice from the fruit while jam uses the whole fruit – juice and pulp – for a richer flavor that can also include chunks of the fruit.

The basic ingredients in each jar of jam are fruit (from local farms and markets), sugar, pectin, and lemon juice.  From those beginnings, the fun combinations can begin!

We sell 8 ounce jars of all flavors and the cost is $6.00 each or 3 jars for $15.00.
