Pioneer Valley

Pioneer Valley Gourmet Continental Cherry Jam


This is a great cherry jam. We highly recommend it!

How did they make such a perfect jam?

This carefully crafted jam is made mostly with tart pie cherries for a burst of flavor cherries but then mellowed and sweetened with the addition of sweet, dark Bing cherries. The combination is perfect. The flavor is perfect, its bright red color is attractive, and the consistency is just right. It will spread on your toast without chunks or drips. It's made with no fillers, corn syrup, or preservatives that would mask the flavors for an intense fruit experience.

As with many foods, the ingredients make all the difference.

What makes Pioneer Valley jam so good?

First, its 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 halfway across the country. You cant have great jam without great fruit. Plus, this jam isn't diluted with a bunch of water. Some grocery store jams and jellies may be made of as much as 40% water and they're not even required to put that on the label!

It's also the careful, handcrafted care that a small, family-owned company puts into its jam. They know how to make great jam and they don't cut any corners.

How can you tell if you're 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? All Pioneer Valley jams are made with authentic, pure cane sugar.

You'll find Pioneer Valley jam thick, rich, and flavorful and the perfect addition to your bread and muffins. Try your favorite varieties. Each attractive hex glass jar contains eight ounces of premium jam.
