About Us

Winning your taste buds over, one jam at a time!

Growing up, I would always help my mama with home canning, baking, & cooking meals for our large family. I carried with me into adulthood a love for baking, cooking, & feeding people delicious foods. That same passion & love for creating yummy foods goes into every jar of jam that I craft.

The “French Style" method of cooking preserves is used predominantly in Europe, where the jams & preserves are made with real fruit, no added pectin, and slow cooked in copper pots. 

All of my jams are made in small batches, with real fruit, and organic fair-trade cane sugar. Cane juice, rich in molasses, vitamins and minerals, is squeezed from fresh sugar cane, evaporated and crystallized. Organic cane sugar costs significantly more than processed sugar but is better for the environment and has the full-bodied taste of sugarcane. Many of my jams have some green apple because apples naturally contain pectin for thickening, but they do not have a heavy powdered pectin texture like commercial jams.

Rocky Mountain Jams got its start as a senior project done by a remarkable young man with a vision and passion for creating delicious jams. His inspiration came from travelling Europe and sampling many of the tasty things that can only be found off the beaten path in small, local B&Bs. I feel so honored & privileged to be able to carry his vision forward & to discover new ways to treat & tempt your tastebuds.

My jams are more than just for toast. They make great intensely flavored glazes for meat, add some Elderberry Jam to your smoothie for an immunity boost, give some life to your cheese tray with Sugar Plum and Fig or Apricot Peach Habanero Jams, add Orange Saffron or Lemon Lavender as a glaze to a pound cake, or spice up your grilled cheese sandwich with our Flathead Inferno or Red Reaper, or if you prefer, toast. I would love to hear what your favorite recipe is!

Thank you for supporting small family businesses like mine,
