Purveyors of the finest quality, handcrafted small batch jams and jellies, preserves and more.

Welcome to Mendocino Jams & Preserves

All our impeccable offerings have been made locally, right here on the beautiful Mendocino Coast for the last 45 years.

We use the finest of ingredients…. always…. we select first quality, whole ripe fruit, pure lemon juice, natural fruit pectin, and sugar. (We never use culled or pureed fruit, nor any preservatives or extenders.)

We often describe our extraordinary products as having “sunshine flavors”, even though our seaward end of Mendocino’s Main Street is often shrouded in morning fog.

Just inland however, away from the Pacific shore, the mist gives way to clear bright sunlight, perfect for growing the bountiful ingredients of our flavorful jams, dessert sauces, chutneys and condiments.
