Each batch of Sarabeth's Award - Winning Legendary Spreadable Fruit is watched carefully throughout the cooking process. The fruits are hand - cut to avoid bruising and to preserve their natural flavor and texture. They are slowly simmered in small batches and allowed to thicken without the use of pectin, until they reach their peak of flavor. Over the years, Sarabeth has meticulously developed a number of delicious flavors in her Spreadable Fruit line, using only the finest of ingredients. These Spreadables are all natural, less sweet and lower in calories than ordinary preserves. Certified Kosher by the Orthodox Union.
