Our Family Roots
As a young girl growing up in the Pacific Northwest, Denise spent many afternoons with her grandmother Mary. Together they would go out, armed with a bucket, determined to bring home an overspilling container of Oregon’s sweetest Strawberries & Marion-berries. Rushing home to the Kitchen, grandma would pull up the stool as we got to work sorting, cleaning and transforming ingredients into jams, pies and crisps. "Grandkids are loved - but also free labor."
“WE BELIEVE THERE IS NOTHING AS GOOD AS SOMETHING HOMEMADE WITH LOVE! THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU GET WITH ADDY’S JAMS & ATLE'S CARAMELS.”
As Denise’s oldest daughter had her first child, a baby girl named Adeline (‘Addy’), a new generation was born for grandma (Meme) to pass along secret recipes and family traditions. This time, however, she decided to spread the joy beyond the immediate nest. *In September we added our newest family member Atle (At-lee), and with his arrival added new joy with our specialty line of Atle's Caramels.
