For many years, The Heritage Gift Shop has sold home-made preserves made with the fruit from local orchards using the traditional recipes our own volunteers created and perfected. Today, seasonal fruits are harvested and then prepared for our store in the old fashioned way, by Community Living in Grimsby, Lincoln, and West Lincoln.
The artisans at Community Living use the freshest Niagara produce, picked at the peak of the season, to create each variety of preserve we sell. Pure fruit, sugar, and seasonings make up every single jar. Along with the long-time summer fruit favourites (Raspberry, Strawberry, Blueberry, Peach, Plum, and Jordan Cherry), look for the innovative combinations like Bluebarb jam and Red Pepper and Peach jam. To add zest and flavour to meats and cheeses, try our Spiced Plum or Cranberry Relish, or one of our extra-hot or sweet pepper jelly flavours. Our selection includes compotes, marmalades, and relishes. When you purchase any of our hand made fresh fruit preserves, the artisans Community Living train master their culinary craft and business skill by producing these first quality foods. Everyone wins!
Jars are sold individually or in specially wrapped gift packages that are ready to give.
For special occasions or corporate gift giving, we will happily prepare select preserve gift packages to your specifications. Just give us a call and we'll get everything ready!
