Valerie has learned from jam experts how to preserve the flavour and nutrients in our fruit in the form of top quality jams and jellies. We are able to control all steps of the process as all fruit used in our products is grown on our farm. Careful attention is paid to every detail from picking berries to processing in our inspected home kitchen.
Small Batches for Flavour
We make homemade jams and jellies in small batches as this shortens the cooking time per batch. Fruit flavour and colour stay more like fresh, and mashed fruit keeps its texture when jam is heated for the shortest possible time.
We harvest all of our fruits when they are at the best stage of ripeness for the maximum flavour and natural pectin content. When fresh fruits are used in the making of jam, sugar is a necessary and important preservative. As sugar intake should be limited in our diets, health conscious consumers will want to enjoy jam and jellies in small quantities as energy boosting treats.
