We put a lot of time and effort into our handmade jams and we want you to be able to enjoy them to their full potential. As you know our jams are low in sugar and high in fruit content, this is what makes them so delicious but it also makes them more prone to spoiling faster than your standard supermarket product. To get the most out of your jam please consider the following:
COOL: Once your jam pot has been opened it needs to be kept in the fridge. Especially now, during our humid, queensland summer months. Yeast loves sugar and humidity and could start growing inside your jar quite quickly.
CLEAN: Do everything you can to keep your jam clean. Don't butter your slice of bread and then dip the same knife into your jam pot. You will introduce contamination that could cause mould to grow on your jam. Use a clean spoon to scoop out the amount of jam you need. Put your lid back on the pot as soon as possible, to stop bread crumbs and other bits falling in.
TIMELY: Our jams will not last forever. Once you have opened them, enjoy them regularly. If you treat them right they should last 8 weeks or more inside your fridge but the sooner you eat them the sooner you get to open another flavour!
Just like other refrigerated food products, jam tastes best when you let it come to room temperature first!
