This jam is loaded with just-picked, real sour cherry flavor. Although it tastes like pureed fresh cherries, it’s actually made of up 75% cooked-down sour cherries and rhubarb so you get the synergy of two nutritious foods in one jar.
Cherries are an excellent source of polyphenols which are antioxidant powerhouses. Rhubarb is also an excellent source of polyphenols, as well as fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K, calcium, and potassium.
Mountain Fruit Company is a small company that makes the most delicious fruit spreads we have ever tasted. All their fruit spreads taste like fresh, ripe fruit should. This is because they cook their fruit slowly and at low temperatures. They never boil their fruit. It’s a very labor-intensive process but it’s one we appreciate because it gives a far superior taste and less need for added sugar (less than half the amount used in typical fruit spreads and jams).
Just like the label says, this is like fresh fruit and since there are no preservatives you’ll need to store it in the refrigerator. Or if you’re like us, you’ll be finished with the jar in just a couple of days because it tastes so good and you’ll find lots of ways to eat it.
