Fruits of Strathmore

Delicious jams, jellies, chutneys, pastes, syrups, cordials & sauces made from fruit grown on our small farm in the lush rolling hills of South Gippsland.

We use as little sugar as we can, consistent with good preserving practices. It is important to understand that sugar, while sweet, is the main preserving agent in a jam and as such, the less sugar, the less time the product will remain viable. We could easily make sugarless jams and jellies but you would need to eat them within a matter of days from purchase – and certainly have to keep the product in your refrigerator. We want to make jams that give you as much of the taste of the fruit as possible and so that is why we will always be a small batch producer and use the minimum of sugar we can.
