As with many foods, the ingredients make all the difference. What makes Pioneer Valley jam so good?
First, it's the fruit. First quality fruit picked and quickly frozen until its ready to go into your jam. Much of the fruit comes from Pioneer Valleys own orchards so you know that the fruit is picked at perfect ripeness and processed without shipping it half way across the country. You cant have great jam without great fruit. Plus, this jam isnt diluted with a bunch of water. Some grocery jams and jellies may have as much as 40% waterand theyre not even required to put that on the label!
But it's the careful, handcrafted care that a small, family-owned company puts into its jam. They know how to make great jam and they dont cut any corners.
How can you tell if youre getting a good jam? Look at the label. Is it made with cane sugar or corn syrup? Corn syrup is cheaper and easier to work with but it masks the flavors of the fruit. If its made with corn syrup, what other corners are they cutting? How much water is it made with?
You'll find Pioneer Valley jam thick, rich, and flavorful and the perfect addition to your breads and muffins. Try your favorite varieties. Each attractive hex glass jar contains eight ounces of premium jam.
The richness and vibrancy of apricots with a touch of honey and slice almonds.
