Jarred Products

From pickles and salsa to pasta sauce, Lil’ Turtles manufactures a variety of jarred products. What was previously only available through our many retail partners, now customers can buy our jams, jellies and preserves directly from our online store. You’ll enjoy browsing our flavor varieties and building your own three or six-jar bundle. Serve with toast at breakfast, or with soft cheeses on a charcuterie board. The differences between jam, jelly, preserves, and marmalade are straightforward:  

Jelly consists of fruit that comes in the form of fruit juice. Jelly is more transparent than jam because any fruit pieces and seeds are strained out during the processing stage. The process may add sugar and pectin, which is a naturally occurring starch from plants used as a thickener in baking and cooking.  

Jam results from the mixing of chopped or diced fruits with sugar. Jam is thicker and coarser than jelly and has more fruit content.  

Preserves are jams with a greater fruit-to-sugar ratio and contain larger pieces of fruit. They feature bigger pieces of fruit that might not suit all palates.  

Marmalade is a more specialized jam, focused on citrus fruits only, and uses most parts of the citrus fruit, including the skin.

Lil’ Turtles’ jarred products are truly scrumptious!

While Lil’ Turtles is justifiably famous for the pecan-roasted chocolate-covered masterpieces that bear its name, it also offers an extensive selection of jarred products as well, marketed under the Grandma Belle brand. These jams, jellies preserves and marmalades reflect Lil’ Turtles’ reputation for delectable, tasty fare made from the freshest and best ingredients.  

Many jam flavors are available, including acai berry, apple pie, apricot, black raspberry, blackberry, blueberry, caramel apple, chocolate-covered cherry or strawberry, and concord. Other jams are dragon fruit, elderberry, guava, hot pepper, jalapeño, mango, and many more. Jellies include apple cinnamon, black raspberry, blackberry, blueberry, concord grape, jalapeño, plum, pomegranate, and many others. For the purist, Grandma Belles’ preserves come in strawberry, peach, and blackberry flavors.

Banana split, BEAR, or traffic jams – your choice! 

Grandma Belle offers some unusually named but delicious jam concoctions, including its Banana Split jam (pineapples, bananas, maraschino cherries, and strawberries). There’s also BEAR jam (Blackberries, Elderberries, Apples, and Raspberries). And don’t forget the ever-popular Traffic Jam, a gridlock-causing combination of strawberries, raspberries, peaches, cranberries, and sour cherries. This flavorful concoction is guaranteed to create congestion in front of the breakfast toaster every time!  

Grandma Belle also offers lines of no-sugar-added jams. These range from fig to hot pepper to peach jalapeño to red raspberry and more. There are also orange or lemon marmalades that include the fruit peel – perfect for high tea!
