Colorado Mountain Jams & Fine Wine Jellies

 


Organic Apple Pie Jam

Our Colorado Mountain Apple Pie Jam was a finalist for the Silver "2008 Outstanding Dessert Topping” Award presented by the National Association of the Specialty Food Trade--an international honor! 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!


 


Organic Apricot Jam

Originating in the mountains of China, the apricot has been cultivated for 4,000 years. 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.


 


Organic Apricot Jalepeno Jam

Colorado Mountain Organic Apricot Jalapeno Jam differs from many jalapeno spreads in that it is full of healthy nutritious fruit and not overloaded with sugar to make up for lack of natural flavor. It combines the tartness and sweetness of tree-ripened apricots with the heat, spice, and intriguing flavor contrast of jalapeno peppers.

This is one of our most versatile jams. A classic way to enjoy it is over cream cheese or another soft mild cheese along with crackers. It also makes a wonderful glaze over chicken and pork or as an addition to marinades. Spread it liberally over Cornish game hens stuffed with wild rice dressing 15 minutes before they are finished baking and offer it as a condiment on the dinner table for those who want more of this taste treat.


 


Organic Blueberry Jam

Though the wild blueberry has been around for over 13,000 years, it wasn't cultivated until the early Twentieth Century. Botanically speaking, the blueberry is part of a family that includes the flowering azalea, mountain laurel, and heather. These plants favor acid soil, plenty of water, and a cool season—a climate far different from that of hot, dry Western Colorado. Searching for blueberries that taste as true to wild as possible, Colorado Mountain Jam located wonderfully flavorful blueberries in Gresham, Oregon. In fact, we drove to Oregon to pick up the small blueberries that go into our Organic Blueberry Jam and transported them home to our kitchen in Palisade, Colorado. 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.


 


Organic Cherry Jam 

Of all the stone fruits, sweet cherries have the highest natural sugar content. Colorado Mountain Organic Cherry Jam is full of the ?Bing??the epitome of the sweet cherries. This large, round cherry, with purple-red flesh and a deep red skin verging on black when fully ripe, produces a jam that has concentrated richness and sweetness.

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; pair with anything chocolate.


 


Crabapple Jelly

The crabapple is the wild ancestor of all the cultivated varieties of apple trees. One taste of Colorado Mountain Crabapple Jelly and you know why birds make a feast of crabapples from your backyard tree just as they reach the peak of ripeness. This flavor sensation is a timeless classic that grandmothers used to make but that is rarely made or found in grocery stores today. With a smooth velvety texture, this distinctive old fashioned preserve is filled with blushing tart crabapples.

Use as a spread on breads, French toast, waffles, pancakes, and scones; use as a filling in crepes and croissants; liven up your peanut butter and jelly sandwiches; use it in baking and cooking.

 


 


Organic Ginger Peach Jam

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.


 


Organic Ginger Pear Jam

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.


 


Concord Grape Jam

The Concord grape was developed in 1849 by Ephraim Wales Bull in Concord, Massachusetts. Bull planted seeds from wild Vitis labrusca and evaluated over 20,000 seedlings before finding what he considered the perfect grape, the original vine of which still grows at his former home. In 1853, Bull’s grape won first place at the Boston Horticultural Society Exhibition. It was then introduced to the market in 1854. Concord grapes are the usual grapes used in the jelly for the traditional peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

But . . . Colorado Mountain Concord Grape Jam is no ordinary grape jam. Full of rich, intense sun-ripened flavor, our Concord Grape Jam will bring a smile to your face. Never again will you settle for a store-bought grape jam! Try it not just with peanut butter, but also in your favorite meat marinade recipes.


 


Organic Peach Jam

Peaches do not travel well far from home. Once harvested, they do not ripen, and cold storage, as anyone who has been disappointed by a supermarket peach knows, results in a wooly texture. With its hot, dry days and cool nights, Palisade, Colorado, grows some of the best fruit in America. Of its bounty of summer fruit, it is most famous for the "Palisade Peach." Colorado Mountain Jam grows its organic peaches in its own orchards, thereby ensuring that only the highest quality, most flavorful peaches go into its Organic Peach Jam.

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.


 


Organic Peach Jalapeno Jam

Originating in China, the peach was brought to America by Spanish explorers in the 16th century. Various Indian tribes are credited with spreading the peach tree across the United States, planting seeds as they roved the country. Colorado Mountain Jam grows its organic peaches in its own orchards, thereby ensuring that only the highest quality, most flavorful peaches go into its Organic Peach Jalapeno Jam.

This versatile jam combines the sweetness of tree-ripened peaches with the heat, spice, and intriguing flavor contrast of jalapeno peppers. A classic way to enjoy it is over cream cheese or another soft cheese such as an artisinal chevre goat cheese along with your favorite crackers. It also makes a wonderful glaze over chicken and pork or as an addition to marinades. Add it to your favorite chicken wings recipe for a new taste treat!


 


Organic Pear Jam

Referring to the type of seeds they contain, pears and apples belong to the pome group of fruits as opposed to the stone group. Cultivated for more than 4,000 years, pears are among the most desirable fruits when properly ripened and among the most disappointing when not ripened properly. The perfectly ripened pear should rival the peach in juiciness and melt on the tongue with no graininess. Colorado Mountain Organic Pear Jam is made from ready-to-eat Bartlett pears that are full of flavor and buttery in texture.

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.


 


Organic Plum Jam

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.


 


Organic Rhubarb Jam

With its huge, crinkled, heart shaped leaves and red-tinted stalks, rhubarb is one of the earliest spring vegetables. People have a love-hate affair with this versatile vegetable, which has been used as a fruit in desserts for centuries! Rhubarb has become increasingly popular in recent years as people become more aware of its health benefits. It is low in carbohydrates, high in Vitamin C, and high in fiber. It has anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-allergy properties. If you love rhubarb and/or want to take advantage of its health benefits, Colorado Mountain Organic Rhubarb Jam is the jam for you.  Our jam has a lovely rosy pink color.

Use as a spread on scones, muffins, crackers, toast, French toast, pancakes, and waffles. Mix it into plain yogurt or cottage cheese; add it to a smoothie; heat it up and spoon it over vanilla ice cream. A favorite way of enjoying Colorado Mountain Organic Rhubarb Jam is to pair it with peanut butter on toast or in a sandwich.


 


Organic Spiced Peach Jam

With its hot, dry days and cool nights, Palisade, Colorado, grows some of the best fruit in America. Of its bounty of summer fruit, it is most famous for the "Palisade Peach." Colorado Mountain Jam grows its organic peaches in its own orchards, thereby ensuring that only the highest quality, most flavorful peaches go into its Organic Spiced Peach Jam.

Organic Strawberry Jam

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! In 2007, the Strawberry Jam won the Gold “Outstanding USDA-Approved Organic Product” Award presented by the National Association of the Specialty Food Trade. It was the first year that this international organization established an award category specifically for USDA-certified organic producers, and we were delighted and proud to be the first-time winner!

Organic Strawberry Rhubarb Jam

Originating in Asia over 2,000 years ago, rhubarb was initially cultivated for its medicinal properties. It was not until the Eighteenth Century that it was grown for culinary purposes in Great Britain and America. The unique taste and texture of this versatile vegetable--a member of the Buckwheat family--make it a favorite in many dishes from chutneys and salsas to pies and desserts. Colorado Mountain Organic Strawberry Rhubarb Jam blends the sweetness of antique varieties of strawberries with the tartness of young and tender rhubarb. Strawberries and rhubarb are available only seasonally so order early!

With a thick, slightly sticky consistency, the jam is a great balance for rich-tasting meats like pork and duck. 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.


 


Tomato Marmalade 

The popularity of the sunshine-loving tomato has come a long way. Scarcely more than a century ago in the United States, this treasure-trove of health giving nutrients was thought to be poisonous, perhaps because the tomato belongs to the nightshade family which does include some toxic members. Today, of course, backyard gardeners across the country compete to see who can produce the tastiest tomatoes. Colorado Mountain Tomato Marmalade Jam is an intensely flavorful combination of vine ripened tomatoes and lemons. Grown in real soil, the tomatoes from which the jam is made are allowed to ripen naturally rather than being artificially ripened with ethylene gas. Many grandmothers made this unusual marmalade, but it is rarely found today.

This perfect blend of tomatoes and lemons enlivens the flavor of grilled, baked, or pan cooked fish. Serve over cream cheese, brie, or any soft cheese; mix into a simple oil and vinegar salad dressing; use to make marinades, sauces, and glazes for your own special gourmet dishes.


 


Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is the premier red wine in the world. Cabernet Sauvignon Fine Wine Jelly is made with the Cabernet Sauvignon Wine of Spero Winery, a family owned and operated winery in Denver, Colorado. The winemaker, Clyde Spero, learned the art of wine making from his father, who came to America at the age of 13 from Potenza, Italy. Clyde and June Spero describe the wine:  "Fresh, fruity aroma; sweet currant and blackberry profile with hints of cherry and spice."  This complexity of aroma and flavor is retained in the wine jelly that is made with only three ingredients--wine, sugar, and pectin.

Use in making marinades, sauces, and glazes and as a condiment for all kinds of beef (even hamburger!), lamb, pork, duck, and stronger flavored game meats; pair with patés, semi-soft cheeses such as Roquefort and Gorgonzola, and firm cheeses such as Provolone and Romano; also pairs well with the sharp, tangy taste of aged cheeses (Cheddar, mature Gouda, Blue Cheese) on crackers; serve over ice cream (wine jelly sundaes are a personal favorite!) and with desserts.

 


 


Chardonnay

The Chardonnay grape variety is a classic white wine grape grown around the world. Chardonnay Fine Wine Jelly is made with the Chardonnay Wine of Grande River Vineyards, Palisade, Colorado. Steve Smith and Naomi Sheppard-Smith of Grande River describe the wine:  “a buttery style enhanced with toasted oak and fruit flavors. This award-winning Chardonnay is for those who might prefer a little more fruit-forward taste.” All of these nuances of different flavors are retained in the wine jelly that is made with only three ingredients—wine, sugar, and pectin.

Use in making marinades, sauces, and glazes for veal, chicken, turkey, and seafood (particularly swordfish and lobster); serve as a condiment with grilled chicken, turkey, light fish, and sushi; pair with patés and semi-soft cheeses such as Havarti and Jarlsberg; also pairs well on crackers with the delicate flavors and textures of soft cheeses such as Brie and Camembert; add to dressings for seafood salads; serve over ice cream (wine jelly sundaes are a personal favorite!) and with desserts.


 


Fume' Blanc


 

Fumé Blanc Wine has come a long way since 1968 when Napa Valley?s Robert Mondavi Winery began marketing it in the United States as its dry version of Sauvignon Blanc. Fumé Blanc Fine Wine Jelly is made with the Fumé Blanc Wine of Garfield Estates Vineyard and Winery, Palisade, Colorado. Top of the Rocky named Garfield Estates the "Top Colorado Winery of 2004," and its Fumé Blanc is consistently winning awards, including being named "Best of the Fest" and receiving a Gold Medal at the 2003 Colorado Mountain Winefest. Garfield Estates owner Jeff Carr describes the wine as "barrel fermented, full-bodied white with a long, complex finish." All of this complexity is retained in the wine jelly that is made with three ingredients?wine, minimal sugar, and pectin.

Merlot


 

The Merlot grape is a close cousin to Cabernet Sauvignon, but it is lower in tannins and makes wines that mature faster and are softer in texture. Merlot Fine Wine Jelly is made with the Merlot Wine of Grande River Winery, Palisade, Colorado. Steve Smith and Naomi Sheppard-Smith of Grande River describe the full-bodied, award winning red wine:  "raspberries, blackberries in the nose, smooth with a hint of chocolate in the taste."
