Kim Osterhoudt has been jamming for over 50 years.
Using the recipes she first learned from her mother (who learned them from her mother), Osterhoudt transfers the produce harvested in her native New Jersey into jars of sweet, chunky, fruity jam. The perfect accompaniment to breakfast pastries, a dessert of vanilla ice cream or even a savory dinner roast, these small-batch jams capture the pleasures of summer, preserving the taste of fresh strawberries, blackberries, peaches, lemons and other seasonal delights throughout the year.
Emphasizing jam (made with the whole fruit) over jelly (made with just the juice), Osterhoudt’s artisanal products add fruity texture to any plate. Classic blackberry jam is accented by lemon zest; Bartlett pear pairs perfectly with fresh strawberries; and a blend of raspberries and blueberries gets a dash of heat with the addition of habanero peppers. Savory jams offer original flavor combinations, blending tomato with orange and ginger, or roasted garlic with sweet onion.
Open a jar of one of Osterhoudt’s provides a taste of sweetness—and a happy memory of recipes perfected over generations and generations.
Pear + Strawberry
Capturing summer’s bounty, this fruity blend makes the perfect pair. Favoring pair with a healthy dose of juicy strawberries, this jam works as a topping for pancakes, waffles, ice cream and more.
A sophisticated blend of tart and smooth, sweet and sour, this accompaniment blends cranberries, onions, pears, ginger and a secret blend of spices for a delicious kick. It’s the perfect holiday complement to roast pork or poultry.
A brilliant combination of summery blueberries (a vitamin-packed superfood) and the pucker of lemons, this jam offers a zesty balance of sweet and sour.
