Berry Best Jam is made in Four Oaks, North Carolina where the morning and evening church bells chime, reminding us of a simpler time. The dogwood trees dance on a soft southern breeze, teasing the scent of fresh fruit through Allison Lassiter’s kitchen window where she is busy creating a new batch of farm-to-table freezer jam.
The root of Berry Best Jam grows deep in the mountains of North Carolina where as a little girl Allison stood on tiptoes to peak over the kitchen counter, watching wide-eyed as her mother preserved tradition and food in their home.
And now after 40 years of practice, Allison has placed a special twist on an old favorite to create a sweet, fruit-forward freezer jam.
Strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and peaches are locally sourced within a 10-mile radius of Lassiter and her husband’s fifth generation cattle farm where friends and family have gathered for years to sample her widely-regarded jams.
With unprecedented attention to detail and a passion for the process, Allison inspects the fruit on the vine herself. Then after placing her order with local farmer’s, the vine-ripened fruit is picked, and delivered to Allison’s kitchen where it is then canned within a matter of hours.
Simplicity bursting with flavor, Berry Best Jam is never cooked in order to maintain that fresh-picked quality. By hand-crushing the fruit herself, Allison ensures each bite is a mouth-watering experience loaded with distinguishable pieces of fruit.
A product which was previously only available to her family and friends, Allison Lassiter’s southern hospitality is now extended to you in a variety of natural fruit jams to share with you and yours across the country.
Pick your favorite Berry Best Jam flavor, and grab a spoon because you will want to eat this straight out of the container. Don’t worry, it will be our little secret.
