“Some jams are meant to be exclaimed over particularly if they taste anything like Jamnation’s The Berry Last Straw… freighted with whole strawberries…the citrus lends bright, puckery dimension to the fruit making a jam that’s as lively as it is lovely.

Rebecca Marx, San Francisco Magazine       


Jamnation is not just about being good. It’s also about being pretty darn delicious. Our favorite: The Berry Last Straw, a wonderfully sweet-and-sour combo of strawberries with Key limes and lemon.”

The Record


[Reynolds] sought specific varietals that converted into the most flavorful jams. Generic strawberries and nectarines wouldn’t do. It had to be Seascape strawberries and Arctic Star nectarines. ‘I tasted 15 (varietals of) peaches,’ says Reynolds.”
