It's not jelly, It's Jammit! Jam!

Jammit! Jam specializes in spreadable fruit for sophisticated palates using seasonal, whole-fruit, natural raw cane sugar, herbs or spices, and a splash of libation.  Our "jams" are produced in small-batches, still hand stirred and hand poured into each jar. Jammit! Jam is low in sugar, and we are a Certified Female Owned business.


Jammit! Jam started as a brainchild of a farm-loving, berry-picking, stay-at-home Mom.  What began as a hobby, infusing fruit with herbs and wine, has evolved into a collaboration of two foodie friends who savor creativity in the kitchen.  We promise to never compromise quality by only producing jam that is whole fruit, small-batch, and jam-i-licious.
 
Andrea spends part of her summers in Portland, Oregon, and one of her “happy” places is Sauvie Island, full of fruit-picking farms. She regularly berry picks with her children and would bring home multiple flats of all types of berries.  There are only so many pies and cobblers one can make before your jeans can’t fit anymore. Andrea, being a health nut, decided that she needed to come up with a better way to preserve and enjoy all of those amazing fruits at their peak.  Andrea, also a creative cook in the kitchen, naturally started experimenting with flavors and cut the sugar way back. When she returned to Dallas, she shared her jams with many friends, one of them, Stephanie, is also an inventive cook and a former wedding cake baker and designer, knew instantly that they were amazing and could easily be sold in local farmers markets.  Through conversation, we decided to combine our savvy cooking skills, marketing and business prowess, to form a business and start collaborating on developing recipes.  “By working together we have come to realize how much we balance and complement each other’s strengths. Our roles are very yin-yang in all the right ways.”
 
The company was founded in January 2014 and started selling in August 2014 at a local farmers market.  Before we knew it, we were unable to keep up with local demand. We knew we had a jam gem when people were telling us that they were eating it directly out of jars with their spoon.
 
Jammit! Jam’s flavors are so delicious because we are passionate about only using whole, seasonal fruit, from whatever region has it fresh and in season at that time, we use only pure raw cane sugar (not the white, processed stuff). We balance the fruit with the perfect spice, herb and libation. We tested every recipe for months.  We both love to cook and to experiment in the kitchen and because of that, we have an understanding of what flavors naturally complement one another. We use our spoon as our symbol because if the finished jam wasn't spoon-worthy to eat right out of the jar, then we weren't done testing the recipe. Our method of cooking really allows the multiple layers of flavors to shine through. And because the alcohol gets cooked out, Jammit! Jam can be enjoyed by the entire family. Jammit! Jam pairs beautifully with artisan cheeses, gourmet pastries and can even be warmed up as a sauce or chutney over meat, pork, duck or chicken.
