Colorado Mountain Jam, Strawberry Rhubarb
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.

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.
