Nutritional Information

For those of you who have visited us here in Shipshewana, you may remember the building which housed the Bread Box Bakery for 20 years. In 2004 the Bread Box Bakery was given a new home next door when we added a new production facility onto the historic Davis Home.

In 2008 we renovated the old bakery building and added a storage section. Why – Peggy says that I desperately need a hobby – I have for many years wanted to make our own jam and jelly. For those of us who grew up in the middle of the last century, making jams and jellies at home was part of growing up. Maybe it is just nostalgia but I wanted to recapture the memories associated with the sweet fragrances and tantalizing tastes of making jam.

Further evaluation led us to explore all natural recipes. We found that all-natural evaporated cane juice has a sweetness that compliments the natural fruit flavor rather than distorting it like the concentrated fruit juice tends to. Our all-natural low sugar jam contains 70% fruit by weight rather than the 35% contained in most jams (our full sugar jam contains 45% fruit).

The all-natural low sugar jam comes through with a stronger fruit flavor and a satisfying sweetness that will enhance any recipe or slice of toast.

We are providing you with these articles that may help you make some decisions about your sugar intake.
