In a world that moves at lightning speed, it’s easy to forget the simple pleasures of slow living. But that’s where we come in.

Our homemade jams and fruit butters at Grandma Chickens Country Jam are not only incredibly delicious, but they’re also a reminder of a time when intentionality was at the forefront of everything we did.

We’re bringing back old classics, made with fresh ingredients and a genuine desire to enjoy the process of life.

Each jar is a spoonful of nostalgia, a taste of something that’s been a comfort for generations.

So slow down, savor the moment, and enjoy the sweet taste of our homemade jams and fruit butters.

Here at Grandma Chickens Country Jam we use the traditional process of water-bathing when making our jams, jellies, and fruit butters.

After cutting, peeling, blending, and boiling fresh fruit, sugar, and pectin we fill our mason jars. Then we screw the lid on and them place them in a large stock pot of boiling water for 10 minutes.

This helps create that suction seal on the lid, preserving our preserves for up to one year for optimal freshness!

This method is the safest form of making homemade preserves at home, just the way grandma used to make.

  • Our jams, jellies, and fruit butters are sold in 1/2 pint jars.
  • You can purchase individual jars or customize any of our offered gift sets!
  • Vegan, gluten-free, and no preservatives.
  • Each jar is topped with a fabric topper, bringing back that old country charm.
  • Our jam is good for six months from the date on the jar unopened in the pantry. Once opened please put in the fridge and consume within 6 months for best taste!
