Overview

Mendocino Jams and Preserves, Dessert Sauces and Condiments are made with meticulous attention to quality and cleanliness. We guarantee every product which we produce to be consistently pure and delicious. We use the finest of ingredients….always…. We select first quality, whole ripe fruit, pure lemon juice, natural fruit pectin, and sugar . (We never use culled or pureed fruit, nor any preservatives or extenders.) Our sauces, too, feature the finest obtainable ingredients. We use the best chocolate, pure whole dairy cream, real butter, pure vanilla extract,choice quality nuts, and other wholesome and flavorful products. As with our jams there are never any chemical additives of any kind. We have developed our recipes so that they taste as close to fresh fruit as possible. By cooking the jams in small batches and using less sugar than most commercially produced jams, we have preserved the true fruit taste.

One word: butter! Yes, the name certainly states that they sell jams and preserves and indeed they do, lots of them. But they also sell something called Lemon Butter. Lemon, sugar, eggs, and butter product that can't be compared and must be tried for yourself....More

Thank you so much for coming in and leaving this review. Yes, the lemon butter is so delicious and people love it! Great on pancakes, scones, cheesecake and vanilla ice cream. Please stop in and say hi next time you’re in beautiful Mendocino!

We visited Mendocino for New Year’s Eve weekend, and visited the shop as we do every time we visit. The owner is so kind and welcoming, happy to share his story/story of the building, and samples (yum!). We love this place!

We enjoyed all the yummy samples and my niece ended up buying many preserves. I got a useful jar opener. The owner was friendly and helpful. When you are visiting this area don't skip this lovely shop!
