Orders placed by noon on Saturday are sent out on Monday each week.

We make all our jams and marmalades in our production kitchen in New Orleans. This kitchen is in a shared space with our sister restaurant, Bar Pomona.

Each jar of jam lasts 2 years unopened from the day we make it. A date is written on the label for ease of reference. We typically sell out of each flavor before it's seasonally time to produce it again and so the jams you buy on our website typically have at least 1 year left of pantry life in them. Once you open your jam, we recommend that you refrigerate it and enjoy it within the month.

In order to ensure shelf-stability, our marmalades are equal parts sugar to fruit weight and our jams are 60% sugar to fruit weight.

We omit commercial pectin because it is not necessary in order to achieve a jam's set. We prefer working the natural pectin found in fruit in order to preserve the true taste of the fruit and to ensure a softer, more natural texture rather than a gel-like set. When working with low-pectin fruit or when making jellies, we use our stock of apple pectin made in August each year from Amorphous Gardens apples.

Jam is made with whole fruit pulp while jelly is made with either fruit juice or with the fruit pulp strained out.

Preserves is a broader category that encapsulates jam, marmalade, jelly, pickles, and more.

Jamboree is not responsible for any damage incurred during shipment. We do our best in packing each order to ensure safe arrival but ultimately don’t have a hand in how it is handled once we drop it off at the post office. You may file a claim online with the shipping service.

The USPS claims process works as follows:

1. Take photos of the broken jam jars inside your package. Do not throw out the broken jars! Keep them inside as is the box they came in in case further evidence is requested

2. File a claim online here, providing USPS with the photos and all other information they may need

3. You will either receive a letter stating that your claim has been approved along with a check OR a letter requesting 'more evidence'

4. 'More evidence' requires that you bring in your damaged package to your local post office with the letter so that they can inspect the package

5. You will receive the letter of approval and corresponding check a few weeks later

Bar Pomona is our sister restaurant located in the same space as our production kitchen. You can shop our entire line of jam and additional gift and pantry products here.
