Tell us a little about yourself and the company you own/run

Slow Jams is committed to Michigan Agriculture and we are committed to producing the highest quality products.  Slow Jams’ Jams, Jellies and Preserves are all handmade in small batches, using Michigan fruit, Michigan sugar, and Michigan herbs.  We have traditional and unique varieties with creative flavor profiles not available in other brands. We want people to explore the culinary possibilities of jam as more than a compliment to toast and craft both traditional and creative varieties of jams to make cooking for your family and friends exciting and easy!

What is your location and when did you start/how long has the company been in business

The Slow Jams kitchen is located in Grosse Pointe Woods, Michigan.  Our Slow Jams journey began two years ago with a group of friends in a local community garden.  We wanted to serve our families Michigan produce year round so we started a food preservation group.  There we learned the art of traditional jam making and Slow Jams was born!  Simple.  Traditional.  Delicious!

 What makes your products special/unique

We hand make each batch of Slow Jams, like our grandmas used to.  Our dedication to crafting the highest quality, local products means every jar of Slow Jams is full of Michigan fruits and herbs.  Our Slow cooking process means more frruit and more flavor in every jar!  

What’s the favorite part about your job

My favorite part of Slow Jams is working with our customers who value our dedication to our Michigan economy and our commitment to our craft.  It is an honor to make delicious preserves for others to share in their homes with family and friends!
