Meet Pam - creator of Pam's Pepper Jams.
Pepper jam is most commonly known as one of the tastiest, and easiest, appetizers you can serve; just spoon over brie or cream cheese, insert a spreader knife, place crackers on the side and walk away…your guests help themselves. Easy!
What’s not as commonly known is what a terrific glaze pepper jam is on pork, turkey, ham, salmon, beef, lamb, wild game…just to name a few. It’s also a flavorful addition to sandwiches, pancakes, waffles, salads, and as a “normal” jam, spread on toast, bagels, and English muffins. We’ve got great recipe ideas for other surprising ways to use pepper jam.
In response to numerous requests for a much spicier pepper jam, we have created a NEW FLAVOR, Ghost Pepper. For those not familiar with Ghost Pepper, it’s the name of an actual pepper, a very hot pepper. Although Ghost Pepper jam is far from being “Minnesota Hot,” it’s not just hot, it has a great flavor. It’s receiving fantastic reviews from people who like a nice “kick.”
It’s Apple Season and LuceLine Orchard and Winery will be carrying Pam’s Pepper Jam this year in their Retail Barn; everything available for purchase is Minnesota made. Located in Watertown (2755 Rose. Ave.), the Season Opening Saturday September 2 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Pam, I’m Megan’s friend and I recently ordered a case of jam from you. She got me hooked when she gave me a jar a few months ago! I just have to say, it’s amazing! Iv’e had other pepper jams before that I thought were good, but one taste of yours and WOW! It doesn’t even compare to the others out there. Can’t get enough of it! I just wanted to thank you and let you know how wonderful it is! ~ Ginger, MN
Aaron and I are in LOVE with your blueberry pepper jam. It is absolutely amazing! We also brought some raspberry pepper jam to a BBQ and our friends went nuts for it. And then we brought some medium pepper jam to a party last night with crackers and cream cheese, and those friends went nuts too! So, just so you know, everyone loves your jam! ~ Kelsey
I have been eating Pam’s Pepper Jam before it became famous and no one makes Pepper Jam like Pam. I remember the first time I ate her jam it was with cream cheese and crackers – so easy and so delicious!! I use her jam on sandwiches, meat and as a marinade but crackers and cream cheese are still my favorite way of eating it. I give Pam’s Pepper Jam as a gift to everyone, I even used it as a party favor at my wedding! ~ Rhonda
Pam’s Pepper Jam is truly amazing! My family LOVES this jam. I often put Pam’s Pepper Jams in gift baskets. So nice to find something locally made that is so very delicious! I recommend all the flavors, however, Blueberry is my personal favorite. Try it, You’ll like it! ~ Kathy
This is by far the best pepper Jam you’ll experience. Great texture, wonderful flavor use as an appetizer, serve with pork, fish, chicken, it’s amazing, you won’t be disappointed. Makes a great gift! ~ Linda
This pepper jam has the perfect combination of heat, sweet and tart. Add cream cheese and it is a perfect snack. It is a perfect gift for any occasion. When served at a party, everyone wants to know where it comes from. ~ Rosanne
This is hands down the best jam (jelly?) I have ever tasted. I have been a big fan of Bon Maman jelly (jam?) for a while; but in comparison it’s flavor is one-dimensional. This jelly has a very complex palate which is a beautiful balance of sweet, sour, and spicy. Neither one of those flavored overpowers any other. I just spread this on some toast and it was difficult to stop eating it! Strongly recommend this exquisite product. ~ Bobby
Loved this Jam, we first had it with grilled pork…. but guess what, I’ve had it with omelet, toast, crackers and cheese. It is delicious, fresh and wholesome. Finished the whole bottle in a week. If you like a little sweet zing in your food, this is the product for you. I will be ordering this again. ~ Jolly
When you first see the product you might be a bit wary because you can see the seeds and small pieces of the jalapeno, but fear not, the fruit (we did the raspberry) round it nicely. It really is a jam (sweet). We started by taking some of the jam and using as a wet rub on the chops and let it sit in the refrigerator for a few hours. We then grilled the chops on some direct heat to seal the outside and then indirect heat to finish cooking thru. Flavor had some nice heat to it but not over powering (Minnesota friendly) and the raspberry gave it a nice finish. We also served some of the jam on the side so guest to kick it up if they wanted. That was a total hit. Cannot wait to use it on my grilled pineapple. ~ Michael
