Chuckleberry Signature Jam
A chuckleberry is a hybrid fruit and has a redcurrant, gooseberry and jostaberry (blackcurrant & gooseberry cross) parentage. This fruit has hints of all three parents and produces a lovely sharp, tart, but sweet flavour with very few seeds. This is a best seller with Jam Packed, and often referred as “tastes like jam used to taste”. Use this jam as a lovely alternative to blackcurrant – it has a similar flavour, but more interesting.
All of Jam Packed jams are extra jams, having more fruit than your typical supermarket brands. An extra jam has to have a minimum of 45g fruit per 100g product and must be made from whole fruit. The jams are made seasonally from using only hand-picked, locally sourced ingredients wherever possible.
Storage: Jams have a best before date one year from the date of production and will be fine kept in a cupboard, larder or other cool, dark, dry place for many months; once opened they should be refrigerated and used within 3-4 weeks.
Ingredients: Chuckleberries, sugar.
Allergy Information: suitable for gluten free, vegans, lactose free.
Jam Packed Preserves is a family run business. They make an extensive range of artisan, award-winning extra jams, jellies, marmalades, chutneys and curds. All preserves are lovingly hand-stir in small batches in open pans. The story began in 2006. From an allotment that had a large stand of autumn raspberries that produced a glut of fruit. Wanting to avoid food waste Sue telephoned her Mum and asked how to make jam. The rest is history!
