Colorado Mountain Jam, Organic Strawberry
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. Colorado Mountain
Jam grows its own organic strawberries between the rows of
plum trees in its plum orchard. The small berries produced by
these everbearing antique varieties are far sweeter than the
golf ball size strawberries typically found in supermarkets.
The processing kitchen is located in the same orchard,
ensuring that the jam retains all the sweetness of these
fragile berries. We can never make enough Strawberry Jam so
Use as a spread on breads, French toast, waffles, pancakes,
and scones; stir into pancake or waffle batter; use as a
filling for crepes, croissants, cakes, and other pastries;
wonderful as a cheesecake and ice cream topping (like apple
pie, strawberries and ice cream are an American classic); make
a strawberry 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.
