Organic Jam - Colorado Mountain Jam
Product Spotlight - Colorado Mountain Jam
At Colorado Mountain Fine Jams & Jellies, their 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, they grow their own apricots, peaches, and plums. Their 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. They also buy the highest quality fruit from other growers who are equally committed to the land. They purchase 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.
shopOrganic offers a mouth-watering variety of these jams, packed with flavor and not overly sweet. We're pretty sure once you taste one, you'll have to try the others. We've put together handy four-packs for you - and these also make excellent host/hostess gifts or corporate gifts for the holidays!

For apricot lovers, Colorado Mountain Organic Apricot Jam is quintessential apricot. The organic apricots are picked at the peak of ripeness from their 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.

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.
This seasonal jam is made from the finest ripe blueberries so every bite is bursting with blueberry flavor. Full of healthful anti-oxidants, use this spread on pancakes, waffles or scones when fresh blueberries are not in season.
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.
Combine the buttery rich flavor of a peach at the peak of ripeness with the tangy zing of jalapeno peppers and you have a spicy, sweet jam packed with mouth-watering flavors. Serve with crackers and cream cheese as a snack or pair with your favorite nut butter for an interesting twist on peanut butter and jelly!
