Crofter’s Organic Premium Spreads
I’m so excited to share our absolute favorite spreads with you! First off, Crofter’s Organic Spreads are called just that, and not jellies, jams or preserves. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires a product called “jelly” to contain at least 65% water-soluble solids (sugar), and must be made with concentrates or fruit juices. “Preserves” and “jams” must contain at least 55% sugar and 45% fruit. Crofter’s Fruit Spreads have only 44% sugar, so they are named spreads!
We’ve been enjoying Crofter’s Organic Spreads for the past 8 years and refuse to buy any other brand. This wasn’t always the case; we were quite loyal to another particular brand. It took us a while to get used to the taste; after all, we were used to those sugary jams and jellies that didn’t have any true fruit flavor. Even the less sweet or “all fruit” jams can’t compare to Crofter’s!
What’s impressive to us is that Crofter’s Spreads are Non-GMO Project Certified and certified organic. We’re extremely concerned with pesticides! Their products are vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free, and the pectin is made from apples (not chemically modified). Crofter’s packaging is glass with BPA-free metal caps! Amazing!!!
The “Premium Spreads” are made with fair trade cane sugar and have 30% less sugar than regular jams. The taste is truly delicious! We’re so hooked on the products that we’re very disappointed when we dine out and see other “jams” served. Once you try Crofter’s Organic Spreads, you’ll see what I mean, and you will “love” the pure, clean, fresh fruit flavor with a lot less sugar!
We crave them so much that we often give them as hostess gifts or part of gift bags for the holidays!
The Premium Spreads come in apricot, blackberry, blood orange, concord grape, four fruit (strawberries, raspberries, red currants and morello cherries), mango, morello cherry, pomegranate, raspberry, strawberry, wild blueberry and biodynamic blueberry. That’s a lot of flavors!!! My favorites are blackberry, raspberry, strawberry and wild blueberry. H loves strawberry!
