It’s hard to believe that we didn’t introduce our Strawberry Jam until 1999, a full eight years after our other top-sellers, Red Pepper Jelly and Wild Maine Blueberry Jam, hit the market. Strawberry Jam is arguably the most popular jam flavor for most, but as a company we were faced with a challenge – how could we turn a common flavor into something uncommonly delicious? Our goal was to simply make the best Strawberry Jam you’ve ever tasted. And after fifteen years, we still think it’s one of the best you’ll ever taste.
It’s a strawberry lover’s dream come true and embraces going back to the basics. Made from chunks of sweet, sun-ripened strawberries, sugar and lemon juice, our classic Strawberry Jam turns your childhood favorites into delectable treats. For a refrigerator staple as common as milk and butter, we think it stands to impress and delight you every day of the week.
See what you were missing out on as a kid with a traditional PB&J, or spoon over ice cream, shortbread or scones. Try it mixed with your morning oatmeal or in the center of tarts and cookies. We enjoy it as the filling in our Peanut Butter & Jelly Bars – check out the recipe below! With so many uses, we’re sure that fans of all ages will love our classic Strawberry Jam.
Peanut Butter & Jelly Bars
- 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, room temperature
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 1/4 cups Stonewall Kitchen Creamy Peanut Butter
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 3/4 cup Stonewall Kitchen Strawberry Jam
- 1/3 cup salted peanuts, roughly chopped
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease an 8-inch square pan with butter and line with nonstick parchment paper, leaving a 2-inch overhang over edges.
- Place butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. A hand mixer may also be used. Beat on medium-high heat until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add egg, peanut butter and vanilla, and beat for 2 additional minutes, until combined.
- Whisk flour, salt and baking powder together. Add to moist ingredients and mix well.
- Spoon 2/3 of the mixture into prepare pan and spread evenly. Next, evenly spread jam on top of peanut butter mixture. Then, take small amounts of remaining dough and scatter randomly over top, trying to cover most of the surface. Sprinkle with chopped peanuts.
- Bake approximately 30-40 minutes or until top is golden. Remove from oven and let cool completely before cutting. Cut into 9 large squares or 12 smaller squares.
