Raspberries and apples. This is a lovely soft jam as the apple gives a smooth texture that kids like and it cuts the number of seeds per spoonful without cutting the flavour of the raspberries.
Anything breakfast, fillings for cakes, cookies, pastry and between bread for a sandwich. Add it to yogurt, smoothies and even pour it over ice cream.
sugar, apples, raspberries
Locally rescued apples make 70% of the fruit used in this jam. There are some local raspberries but never enough, so we purchase these. The sugar is made in Alberta.
Comes in 250 ml jar. 40 ml jars are made for our Singles Gift boxes.

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.
We compost and recycle whenever possible.
