Jamnation, founded by Gillian Reynolds, celebrates exquisite fruit, with a focus on sustainability & superior ingredients. On a trip to Brazil in 2013, the simple fruits she tasted from small, local farms exploded with flavors that blew her away. Returning to San Francisco, she sought out the same intensity of flavor in local organic fruit from small Northern California farms. Her desire to share these exquisite fruits with friends & family inspired her to create artisanal jams that are bright, bold & meticulously paired. A Stanford economics major, she was struck by the impact of global trade on farmers in developing countries, so all Jamnation products use Fairtrade sugar and spices and eco-friendly containers.
Jamnation jam is made with seasonal fruit only, uses more fruit and 20% to 40% less sugar than commercial jams and has no added pectin. The jams are vacuumed-sealed and protected against bacteria indefinitely, but the taste is best up to 2 years after jarring.
