Juices, Jams and Jellies

To order, just email Joyce at bluefruitfarm@gmail.com, and let us know your name and phone number, which flavors you want, how many, and we will get back to you with availability and delivery options. We only make so many of each flavor so we may not always have availability. We also sell at the Feast Local Foods Show at Rochester Civic Center in December. At this time, we do not make quantities large enough to sell wholesale. Plus, all our value added products are made in our home kitchen which is not MN licensed. We are registered as Minnesota Cottge Food producers. 

We started making jams and jellies with our organic fruits because the flavors were exceptional. They have been so popular that we have expanded our jam and jelly selection. All jams and jellies are 1/2 pints, made with our organic fruits and organic cane sugar.

Joyce uses Sure Jell (low sugar) pectin so the fruit flavors really shine. Most of the recipes are for berry jams using 6 1/2 cups of chopped fruit and 4 1/2 cups of sugar with 1 box of Sure Jell. We abide by the MN Cottage Food Law and have registered and taken the appropriate trainings. Food safety is important to us when we make our delicious jams, jellies and juices. All jars are processed in a hot water bath canner.

Juices are made by steam juicing (extraction) the whole fruits. The juice flows out of the steam juicer and is filtered twice through a stainless steel screen, heated, and bottled. Juices can also be frozen in quart and half gallon food grade plastic containers, upon request. The pH of juices is under 4.6. You can request specific juices for us to make on a regular basis. When fruit is available, we typically make elderberry juice, aronia juice and elderonia juice.
