Colorado Mountain Jam, Organic Pear
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.

Our goal at Colorado Mountain Fine Jams & Jellies is to give customers the wonderful opportunity to experience all of the aroma and rich flavors of sun-ripened fresh fruit in every jar of our jams. Our small mom and pop business began in 1998 with the purchase of apricot, peach, and plum orchards that had been farmed for more than a century in ways that depleted the soil. Dedicated to the principles and practice of organic farming, we added organic material to the soil that it had lacked for so long and implemented other sustainable practices.
Over time, giving back to the land more than we took from it, we were able to transform the orchards. The fruit responded to our caretaking. Today, the trees in these USDA-certified organic orchards produce superior quality fruit. The apples, apricots, cherries, peaches, pears, plums, and strawberries in our jams have the intense flavor and incredible natural sugar content that can only be found in tree-ripened fruit.
The primary ingredient in all of our jams is the organic fruit itself. Harvesting takes place when the flavor and natural sweetness of the fruit have reached maximum intensity and are in the perfect balance needed to make exquisite handcrafted jams and jellies.
