We gather local pears in the fall and juice them to collect this rich pear juice. The jelly is a very simple but full of 2 wonderful flavours –
the deep pear and freshly grated ginger root.
Uses: all breakfast items plus it makes a lovely glaze on chicken, or even stirred into an oil and vinegar salad dressing for the added fruit and sweetness. It fills cookies and cake layers. For a sparkling touch to a pie, gently melt the jelly and brush a pie crust when it has just come from the oven.
Sugar, pear juice, pectin, organic lemon juice, ginger root.
The fruit used in this jelly is 100% from locally rescued pears in Edmonton.
This product for this price is a 250 ml jar. We do make a 40 ml jar that is part of the Singles Gift Box.

We use our profits to make fruit snacks for food programs in the city that support those who are in need. Over the last 2 years with the manpower of wonderful volunteers we have made and donated about 27,000 individual snacks. These are apple chips, fruit leather, and apple sauce tubes.
We also provide work experience and volunteer opportunities for those who want the opportunity to contribute to others. This is usually with the apple snack program. Some tasks are perfect for those who have a variety of limitations.
When it comes to picking we will priorize those who are no longer able to care for their fruit trees.
We use local fruit that grows in people's yards instead of letting it go to waste. We also work with other groups in the city who want local fruit for their charity or food programs. By speaking to homeowners we are able to educate them about the apple maggot infestation and proper disposal of their yard waste. By teaching preserving classes we help homeowners find ways of using their own fruits.
