The main and most important ingredient in jams and jellies is fruit - which is why using healthy, quality fruit that’s perfectly ripe or a touch under-ripe is vital for a finest jam or jelly.
At Weaver Nut, we use the old fashioned, Amish recipes and finest ingredients from the bountiful Lancaster County to create Amish Maid jams and jelly.
Pennsylvania Dutch country food culture has traditionally included fresh homemade jams, jellies and fruit spreads, and other canned goods. The Amish families of Lancaster County harvest their crops and prepare delicious foods using recipes handed down from generation to generation.
Premium quality jams and jellies are a delicious accompaniment to just about anything, but are mostly well known for their amazing paring with toast.
The gelatin-like, smooth consistency of jelly and its spread-ability makes it perfect for PB&J sandwiches – another big staple in almost every American family.
Jams have consistency that is similar to pureed fruit. The richness of flavor and versatility of use make them an exciting ingredient for baking, cooking and snacking.
We put some delectable ideas together to help you get creative with the use of yummy jams and jellies - from cocktails to glazes, braises, baking and more.
