Jams and Jellies

And Other Good Things Made From Fruit

Jellies, Jams, Preserves, Butters, Spreads, Syrups, Honeys, Marmalades, and other yummy things made from fresh fruits are a specialty at Stono Farm Market.

So, what is the difference between these products besides the fruit it’s made from?


Jelly: Made from fruit juice, sugar and pectin and there should be no pieces or parts of the fruit

Jam: Made from crushed fruit and/or the pulp of fruit, sugar and pectin.  Jams are usually a little softer than jellies 

Preserves: Made from the whole fruit, sugar and pectin.  Preserves have hunks of fruit and are about the same consistency of a jam.

Butters: Made from the “sauce” of the fruit, like apple sauce, strawberry sauce, etc.  Smooth to spread and very flavorful!  Some of our Butters have NO ADDED SUGAR, so they are as good for you as possible!

Spreads: Sweetened with fruit juices only - NO SUGAR ADDED.  Thank goodness for this product because my diabetic husband can at least have a little something sweet in his life besides me.  HA!

Marmalades: Made from the rind and pulp of citrus.  Marmalades can also have other fruits added, but typically they are made from citrus.  YUM  YUM

Hors d’Oeuvres Jelly: Generally made from what we consider vegetables and are used as a spread on crackers with soft cheese (cream cheese is most often used).   Some of the most common are Red Pepper Jelly and Green Pepper Jelly, but there are many others that are quite popular.

Honey: One of nature's wonderful delights!  A sweet treat that offers so very many health benefits.  We have honey from our farm, available with or without comb.  We also have Bee Pollen, but be very careful to follow the directions on the container, as it can be dangerous for those with allergies if not taken properly.


We have jellies, jams, preserves, butters, spreads, and marmalades made from a wide variety of fruits.  Products made from our local fruits are our customers favorites, of course, but we have a wide selection of products from fruits that are not common to the LowCountry.
