The PALACE GREEN® makes freezer jams because frozen jam tastes better and doesn’t cook out “all the good stuff.” Since we freeze our jams instead of cooking them, we retain the fresh fruit flavor instead of giving you that cooked fruit taste that you are used to in jams and jellies. We use an old fashioned method of fruit preservation made in farmhouse kitchens decades ago called “freezer jam.”
Freezer jams are enjoyed by families who look for fresh foods preserved in new-old ways. The Palace Green® celebrates past food traditions by linking modern breakfast tables to past preservation techniques. Our grandmother’s root cellars, long a thing of the past, used cold temperatures and cane sugar to keep summer fruit harvests preserved throughout the year. In a similar way, the Palace Green® keeps fruits bright and fresh for family tables by mixing pure cane sugar and pectin into newly harvested fruit and juice. The resulting jams are then quickly frozen for a year of preservation.
When ready to use, Palace Green® freezer jams are simply thawed and kept in your home refrigerator. Once again the summer’s harvest is preserved for a year of use at family tables.
The Palace Green LLC is a homegrown North Carolina company. Started in a Cary, NC home kitchen, it moved to it’s own farmhouse commercial kitchen in Rose Hill, NC in 2017. Passionate for freezer jam, we carefully hand-craft our small batch freezer jams for #freezerjamfans around the country.
PALACE GREEN® Farmhouse Freezer Jams are sold online here. Or find them in Whole Foods Market and the NC State Farmer’s Market (at the Mae Farm Meats booth, indoors.)
