Jams, Butters, & Toppings

We’ll let you in on a little secret -- it’s easy to create the tastiest cherry jams, jellies, and preserves when the best ingredients can be found right outside our front door. For 30 years, the cooks at our Cherry Factory in Empire have stirred kettles full of original recipe Cherry Jam, Cherry Pecan Butter, Cherry Strawberry Preserves, and True Cherry Preserves. Using local northern Michigan cherries, our jam tastes like the freshly picked fruit from which it was made.

Keep an eye peeled the last two weeks of July and early August for our unique Montmorency and Balaton Nouveau Preserves -- from orchard to jar in less than 24 hours, your jar may still be warm!
