LAURENCE'S ARTISANAL PRESERVES

Truly outstanding jams, marmalades and preserves made from the best seasonal fruit



"The first order of jam arrived yesterday. We were excited to try it and immediately made some toast. It was the best jam we have ever tasted!! My husband said "I have never tasted jam this delicious." His grandmother used to make jam. We tasted the fig and it was so thick and tasty. We are looking forward to tasting the others. You can tell it was made with love. We are going to a house warming party and I am going to give a jar as a gift. It is rare in this world to be able to enjoy something made with this kind of care."
