My name is Jamie Williams, also known as “Momma Bear” by my husband, kids, family, and the locals in Granite Falls. I am a stay at home mom who enjoys making homemade jams, jellies, and preserving (home canning) fruits and vegetables. I have been making homemade jams and jellies since I was a child, learning from my Mom. Over the years I have developed several of my own variations of standard jams and preserves such as Strawberry-Rhubarb Jam, Cranberry-Apple Butter, and Raspberry-Blackberry Jam. My most requested jam is a tie between Seedless Blackberry & Strawberry Rhubarb Jam. I truly enjoy making the jams and jellies. I have been told “it is a dying art” & “this is real food”.
I am often asked, “Why do I sell my jams?" I sell my homemade jams because I enjoy making the jams and inventing new flavors. This job allows for flexibility with my family and for participating in community activities and events.
