With its hot dry days and cool nights, Palisade, Colorado produces some of the best tasting fruit in America. So it's no great surprise that Palisade is also home to some premium small production, artisan food companies that make use of all that high quality fruit. One such operation is Colorado Mountain Fine Jams & Jellies.
Located in the middle of an organic orchard where they pick their fruits for making jelly, Colorado Mountain offers a diverse gourmet line of jams and jellies. Unlike most mass production jam companies, Colorado Mountains grows their own apricots, peaches, and plums.
One blog recently featured Colorado Mountain. Under the headline, "Colorado Mountain Jam Organic Fruit Spread," WellBaskets, a gift basket company for cancer and heart patients, as well as diabetics, celiacs and dieters, wrote:
"Crave the fruity sweetness of jam but want to avoid high fructose corn syrup and empty calories? Colorado Mountain Organic Gourmet jams and jellies are as nutritious and healthy for you as they are delicious and pleasurable to eat. Unlike most mass-production jam companies, Colorado Mountain Jam grows their own apricots, peaches, and plums in their Palisade, Colorado organic orchards. Because the fruit has been allowed to sun ripen on the trees to develop its full flavor naturally, the jams need minimal added sweetener. They contain one of the lowest, if not the lowest, amounts of calories and carbohydrates of any jam on the market and offer nutritional value—vitamins A and C, calcium, and iron."
"Flavors include apple pie, apricot, apricot jalapeno, blueberry, cherry, crabapple, ginger peach, ginger pear, grape, peach, peach jalapeno, pear, plum, rhubarb, spiced peach, spiced plum, strawberry, strawberry rhubarb, and tomato marmalade. Culinary uses are limited only to your imagination, and the jars are elegant enough for gift giving."
