Mrs. Ruth’s Jams


Mrs. Ruth’s Jams began as a way to provide her husband with a supply of strawberry jam. Her friends began returning jars for refills and asking to buy jam. The defining moment for the beginning of the business was when Mrs. Ruth was caught smuggling her jam into a future customer’s shop to enjoy on their amazing breads. They asked Mrs. Ruth to sell in their specialty food shop!

Mrs. Ruth’s Jams are made the old fashioned way – fruit, cane sugar and pectin cooked in small batches. They do not use fructose, preservatives or artificial flavors.  Our artisan jams are only the good stuff and made with patience – not preservatives.

Mrs. Ruth has always enjoyed local produce and visited farmers markets around the world. They work with a network of N.C. farmers to bring their freshest produce to our artisan jams.  They believe knowing your farmer is a good thing!

Ms. Ruth has won several Good Food Awards for her jams, most recently in 2022 for her Strawberry Lemonade Jam. This year she is a Good Food Awards finalist for her Blueberry Lemon Basil Jam and Chatham House Blueberry Mustard. You can shop all of her products, including here award-winning jams, here.
