When to enjoy by?
We don’t add any additional pectin or preservatives to our jams or marmalades. Each fruit has a different concentration of natural pectin so there are different ranges for different flavors.
Each jar is individually labeled with a suggested “enjoy by” date. Once opened, under proper refrigeration, they should last for at least two months.
Why ARE PJCO JAMS A different color BATCH TO BATCH?
We take pride in our small batch process, crafting 15-25 jars at a time. We use fresh produce to make our jams as delicious and as beautiful in color & texture as possible. Fruit is a thing from nature that we source seasonally. Sometimes fruit will be sourced from a variety of farms and very rarely we may switch the varietal of fruit based on its availability. We keep our recipes as consistent as possible but the final product can potentially be a different color with the same great taste.
If you’ve had a jar hanging out for a long time and it has an off odor & color it may have gone bad. See our “When should I enjoy it by?“ FAQ above.
