Mountain Preserves

Transform your morning toast and add an uncommon dimension to recipes with this artisanal jelly & jam set. Intrepid former archaeologist and hardcore foodie Nancy Warner moved to Vermont and, inspired by the bountiful local food and beer culture, started hand-making small batch preserves featuring local ingredients. In this collection, each jam or marmalade is a complex ensemble unto itself—from the sweet, smoky spice of Strawberry Chipotle (Nancy’s original Vermont jam) to the dessert-inspired decadence of Carrot Cake. The set also includes Apple Pie jam and Sunshine Citrus marmalade (a nod to Nancy’s native Florida). Add a distinctive touch to cheese platters, mix them into salad dressings and cocktails, use them for irresistible baking, or indulge in a sophisticated pb&j! Handmade in Waterbury Center, VT.

Walter and Nancy Warner

In 2009, founders, Nancy and Walter Warner, left their rewarding and ever interesting careers in archaeology to relocate to Vermont so Walter could attend the Vermont Law School. While Walter honed in on cultural resource law, Nancy (already food-centric and an avid forager) began to focus on the local bounty and found great inspiration in Vermont’s food and beer culture.

The first batch of strawberry chipotle jam was made with 10lbs of berries harvested at the Thetford Strawberry Festival. This was quickly followed by other unconventional flavors such as homegrown blackberry basil jelly & wild sumac jelly. Hooked on canning, Nancy had a cupboard of jam and Walter pushed her to the farmers market.... possibly with the hopes of paying off law school loans.

One winter when fresh fruit was out of stock Nancy began turning all ordinary things, like coffee or wine, into jelly. After making wine jelly, the craft beer lover was determined to create a jelly that tasted like beer. The first beer jellies were cooked up late winter 2011 and quickly the most popular was beer jelly which was made with local homebrew. collection
