Jams, Jellies, Marmalades, I don't understand
What is the difference? Isn't jam and jelly all the same?
A jam is a fruit preserve, cooked with the flesh of the fruit, blended in with the ingredients.
A jelly is also a fruit preserve, but cooked with only the juice of the fruit, blended in with the ingredients.
And last, a marmalade is a fruit preserve, using the whole fruit, which contains a rind (peel), blended all together, typically a citrus fruit.
Don't worry, we take out the seeds...
But can't I just buy this stuff at the grocery store?
Sure, but it's not even close to the same. No artificial flavors in our stuff, no high-fructose corn syrup, and when is the last time you saw Spicy Pomegranate? (one of our most popular flavors!) The first time you taste it you can tell, this is not just off-the-shelf jam, it's real fruit, and it's really good. Stop by our display and taste a sample.
Well, how do you make it?
The ingredients are prepared , mixed, blended, cooked and canned in glass jars, using simple ingredients just like grandma use to. An ingredient label is right on the jar. Our flavor offerings have been adjusted and improved over the last 20 years of our business. All of our offerings are made in our Certified Kitchen by Tulare County home cottage regulations.
