About the Jams & How to Use Them
About the Wine Jellies & How to Use Them
At Colorado Mountain Fine Jams & Jellies, our mission is to offer a diverse gourmet line of 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, we grow our own apricots, peaches, and plums. Our organic orchards are located in Palisade, Colorado, which, with its hot dry days and cool nights, produces some of the highest quality, best tasting fruit in America. We also buy the highest quality fruit from other growers who, just like us, are committed to the land. We purchase our fully ripened pears, for example, from Chris Kropp of First Fruit in Paonia, Colorado, and the strawberries with incredible old-fashioned flavor that go into our award winning Strawberry Jam come from Kelly Wilmer of Natural Choice in Oxnard, California.
Our Plum Daisy Kitchen is located right in our apricot and plum orchard. That’s as fresh as fruit—and jams— can get! What makes our jams and jellies special or truly “gourmet"? It’s simple—it’s quality. We make them the way our grandparents and great grandparents made jam. 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 our jams and others is that they have nutritional value—vitamins A and C, Calcium, and Iron. Most commercially produced jams do not list nutritional content on their labels.The all natural and organic ingredients that go into the jams are the same as those used by our ancestors—fruit with very little added sweetener and sometimes spices to enhance flavor.
From start to finished product, the highest quality standards are maintained. To capture the greatest possible concentration of flavor, the jams are made in small batches. 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!
We are proud of the international awards that our jams are winning, but we know we’ve succeeded when people taste our jam, smiles light their faces, and they exclaim, “I remember how my grandmother made plum jam, and it tasted just like this.”
