Joan & Bob’s Juicy Jams is a range of handmade preserves. Bob and Joan are a husband and wife team who have a combined passion for preserving, skills they learned from our mothers, who turned all the wild fruits, apples and berries grown on the family farms into the most memorable and delicious jams.
At home in their kitchen in Thomastown, County Kilkenny, Ireland, they create and make all of their own unique recipes and flavour combinations. Alongside the creative process, they also complete the journey of the product; all the potting up, labelling, marketing and deliveries are done by themselves.
They hand-tie colour coded ribbons on all their products and all the labels feature their own pen drawings and designs and recipe sugestions to recreate that nostalgic homemade look for your larder.
They grow and harvest a lot of their own fruit and collect and freeze all the wild berries used in the jams. They sell their preserves to select Artisan food stores, craft butchers, health food shops and cafes, where they carry out regular tastings of their products.
