Before the advent of refrigeration, preserving foods was not just convenient, it was vital. Of course, not all preserved foods turned out to be as delicious as jam, but that's no surprise without ripe fruit as the main ingredient.
The sweet pleasures of jam have likely been around since the Romans cultivated fruit, flowers and honey, but over time, much of the tradition created by the original jam artisans was unfortunately lost to mass production.
Today, all too many of the jams you'll find on your local supermarket shelf are mostly sugar, even if the product contains whole fruit or fruit bits. We sought to change that. By using only real ingredients and utilizing sugar sparingly, we've created a line of preserves that combines goodness with a health-conscious attitude.
We offer a range of naturally tasty jams. Most of our preserves contain fewer than 10 grams of sugar per tablespoon, and all are created without the use of artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. Shop your favorites including strawberry, blackberry, orange and mango. Looking to buy a more unique jam flavor? Try guava, pineapple or coffee. You can use these natural preserves in a variety of ways, from the breakfast to the dinner table. Many flavors pair incredibly well with a range of cheeses and can be used to create interesting
recipes quickly and affordably.

What's the difference between a jam and a preserve? The answer is right there in the name: a jam uses crushed - or jammed fruit, while a preserve preserves the entire fruit.
You might also be familiar with other interchangeable words such as "jelly" and "marmalade". However, jellies just use pectin and juice, leaving the fruit out altogether. A marmalade, on the other hand, is simply a jam or preserve that uses citrus fruits such as oranges or lemons.
