Product Description

Gourmet jams and jellies that are as nutritious and healthy for you as they are delicious and pleasurable to eat. Unlike most mass-production jam companies, Colorado Mountain Jam grows their own apricots, peaches, and plums in their Palisade, Colorado organic orchards. The hot, dry days and cool nights produce some of the highest quality, best tasting fruit in America.

The fruit is picked at the peak of ripeness when it is beginning to fall on its own from the trees. Because the fruit has been allowed to sun ripen on the trees to develop its full flavor naturally, the jams need minimal added sweetener. They contain one of the lowest, if not the lowest, amounts of calories and carbohydrates of any jam on the market. Probably the most telling difference between these jams and others is that they have nutritional value—vitamins A and C, Calcium, and Iron.

Thickened the old-fashioned way by slowly cooking down the fruit, the jams are made without the use of artificial ingredients, colors, or preservatives. This careful process results in jams that are beautiful in appearance reflecting the natural fruit color, intensely flavorful, incredibly rich tasting—brimming with whole fruit goodness!

Colorado Mountain Fine Jams & Jellies begin with organic fruit from our orchards that is fully ripened and brimming with characteristic fruit flavor at harvest. We add only a minimum of organic evaporated cane juice, pectin, and sometimes flavor-enhancing spices to the jams, and cook the fruit down in small batches. This careful process produces jams that are richer, fuller, warmer, and more satisfying to the taste than commercially manufactured jams.

Order includes one 8 oz jar in your choice of flavors.

Strawberry: The strawberry conjures up memories of perfect summer days in childhood. At any age, few life experiences compare with happening on a patch of wild strawberries. Our Strawberry Jam brings back those childhood memories! Use as a spread on breads, French toast, waffles, pancakes, and scones; stir into pancake or waffle batter; use as a filling for crepes, croissants, cakes, and other pastries; wonderful as a cheesecake and ice cream topping (like apple pie, strawberries and ice cream are an American classic); make a strawberry mousse or sorbet; add to salad dressings; mix into cottage cheese, yogurt, and smoothies.

Apple Pie: Cultivated at least since Roman times, the apple is classified as a "pome," a fruit that has many tiny seeds within a core at the center. The flavor of a truly tasty apple is a magical blend of tartness, sweetness, bitterness, and aroma that awakens the senses. Capturing the aromatic flavors of the apple pies that grandmothers used to make, Colorado Mountain Organic Apple Pie Jam is full of chunky bits of crisp, fresh apples picked at the peak of ripeness from our own orchard. Fragrant cinnamon and clove enhance this healthy jam. Use as a spread on breads, French toast, waffles, pancakes, and scones; mix into cottage cheese, yogurt, and smoothies; serve as a condiment with meats; use as a filling in crepes, dumplings, and croissants; wonderful as a cheesecake and dessert topping; and the combination of this jam with ice cream is the classic apple pie a la mode!

Apricot: For apricot lovers, Colorado Mountain Organic Apricot Jam is quintessential apricot. The organic apricots are picked at the peak of ripeness from our own orchard. The jam's thick, creamy texture, its pure, concentrated apricot flavor, and its piquant blend of sweet and tart make for an unforgettable--and potentially addictive!--taste experience. Use as a spread on breads, French toast, waffles, pancakes, and scones; use as a filling in crepes and croissants; use to make marinades, sauces, and glazes for your own special gourmet dishes; serve as a condiment with meats; wonderful as an ice cream/dessert topping; mix into cottage cheese, yogurt, and smoothies.

Ginger Peach: Made with plump summer peaches picked at the peak of perfection, Colorado Mountain Organic Ginger Peach Jam combines the sweetness of the peach with the zest and bite of fresh high quality ginger. The ginger, with all its health enhancing benefits, is grown organically in Brazil and Hawaii, and the organic peaches come from our own orchard. This mellow and intense, sweet and spicy blend will delight ginger lovers. Use as a spread on breads, French toast, waffles, pancakes; use in crepes, croissants, or scones; wonderful as a cheesecake, ice cream, and dessert topping; use to make marinades, sauces, and glazes for your own special gourmet dishes; mix into cottage cheese, yogurt, and smoothies.

Ginger Pear: Interweaving subtle, complex flavors, Colorado Mountain Organic Ginger Pear Jam contains more than a hint of ginger. The zest and bite of fresh, high quality ginger are combined with the delicate, warm flavors of tender, juicy ripe pears. The ginger, with all its health enhancing benefits, is grown organically in Brazil and Hawaii, and the organic pears come from our own orchard. Use as a spread on breads, French toast, waffles, pancakes, and scones; use as a filling in crepes and croissants; wonderful as a cheesecake, ice cream, and dessert topping; use to make marinades, sauces, and glazes for your own special gourmet dishes; mix into cottage cheese, yogurt, and smoothies.

Plum: The plum is a "drupe" (a pitted fruit) related to the apricot, cherry, and peach, but it is far more diverse, coming in a wider range of shapes, sizes, and skin colors. Its flavors also vary from very sweet to quite tart. Sixteen varieties of plum trees--from the mahogany Santa Rosa Plum to the deep red Elephant Heart Plum to the dark purple Italian Prune Plum--grow in the organic orchard from which Colorado Mountain Jam harvests its plums. The processing kitchen is located in this orchard, ensuring the ultimate in freshness no matter which plum goes into a particular batch of jam. Plum lovers will love Colorado Mountain Organic Plum Jam with just the right blend of tart and sweet. Use as a spread on breads, French toast, waffles, pancakes, and scones; use as a filling in crepes and croissants; mix into cottage cheese, yogurt, and smoothies; use to make marinades, sauces, and glazes for your own special gourmet dishes; especially complementary to pork, beef, lamb, and chicken.

Blueberry: Packed with intensely flavorful blueberries, this jam couldn’t taste any fresher if you picked the blueberries yourself in your own secret spot. Use as a spread on breads, French toast, waffles, pancakes, and scones; use as a filling in crepes and croissants; wonderful as a cheesecake, ice cream, and dessert topping; mix into cottage cheese, yogurt, and smoothies.

Peach: Use as a spread on breads, French toast, waffles, pancakes, scones; use as a filling in crepes and croissants; wonderful as a cheesecake, ice cream, and dessert topping; use to make marinades, sauces, and glazes for your own special gourmet dishes; mix into cottage cheese, yogurt, and smoothies.

Use as a spread on breads, French toast, waffles, pancakes, and scones; use as a filling for crepes, croissants, cakes, and other pastries; wonderful as a cheesecake and ice cream topping; make a strawberry rhubarb mousse or sorbet; add to salad dressings; mix into cottage cheese, yogurt, and smoothies.
