Our jam is made from only certified organic ingredients including raspberries, strawberries sugar, ginger, red chile, lavender, natural fruit pectin, and cane sugar.
How much sugar is in your jam?
Our jam has only 7 grams of sugar per tablespoon. This is actually about 1/3 the amount that other jams use. A serving of our jam has 30 calories; the average commercial jam has 50 calories per serving. This ensures you are tasting the luscious flavor of the organic fruit we use in our jam.
Does your jam have seeds?
Yes, our jam has seeds. Heidi's utilizes the seeds as part of our cooking process. This helps to retain nutritional value and keep our jam high in natural fiber. Both are important for a healthy diet.
Who makes the Jam?
All of our jam is made in our own production facility located in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Heidi and her team cook and packages each jar of jam. We do not co-pack our product. Love is put into every single jar.
What are the health benefits of raspberries?
Red raspberries (Rubus Idaeus) are extremely rich in antioxidants. These juicy berries are packed with Vitamin C, fiber, manganese and pectin. They are also a good source of Vitamin A and B2, folate, selenium, iron, niacin, magnesium, potassium, copper, and essential oils. These vitamins and minerals promote healthy hair, skin, nails, bones, and teeth. Significant amounts of the soluble fiber pectin may also help maintain healthy cholesterol levels. Raspberries also have high amounts of ketones, which are compounds known to alter lipid metabolism and assist in weight management.
When is U-Pick open?
Raspberry season is generally from early July through the beginning of October, and we remain open until the first freeze of the year. For more specific information, check our homepage and events page throughout the year.
