Adult Jam

These unique jams and marmalades are made with organic fruit, organic cane sugar, spices, and, in some cases, liqueur (hence the name Adult Jam).

Elizabeth Eisler has been a confiturier for a long time, having learned from her mom and grandmother. Born in Oakland, her family is part of five generations residing in the San Francisco Bay Area.
