Cooking with Sunfresh Jam

Cooking with Jam sounds odd at first, but our product is a great substitute wherever fresh fruits are needed. Because our products are not cooked when they are made, they retain the natural flavors you need to make your favorite meals sing. Our apricot jam specifically makes a great ingredient for a tangy dressing or sauce. Some of our favorite recipes are shown below.
