Frequently asked questions
What is the significance of the name “Eat This Yum”
It’s really a statement to emphasize that our products are made from organic and/or natural ingredients without any artificial flavorings or preservatives.We want our customers to feel confident that we use only the finest and (when available) locally-sourced ingredients available.
Where are you located? May I visit?
We are located at the Delaware Valley Fire Company, 75 Headquarters Rd., Erwinna, PA 18920.You may visit, but it’s best to call first to make sure we’re there – 215.391.5807.
How can I buy your jam?
How long will the items take to get to me?
What is the difference between jelly, jam, preserves, marmalade, and conserve?
Jelly is made from fruit juice, sugar and often pectin. Jam is a thick puree mixture of fruit, sugar and often pectin. Preserves and conserve are jams with chunks of fruit. Marmalade is similar to preserves but contain citrus fruit rind.
Why do you add sugar? Do you have any jams with a sugar substitute?
The main function of sugar is to work with the pectin and fruit acids to form the gel structure of jam and to preserve the color and inhibit the growth of mold. We do not currently have non-sugar jams because we believe we cannot replicate the quality of our recipes into a non-sugar format.
Is everything local and organic?
No, not everything. Longer answer: We like to say “thoughtfully sourced” because we think about the origin and quality of every single ingredient and we maintain close collaboration with many local farms. We often change the sourcing of our fruits, herbs and other produce for every batch based on what is available at ripest/best quality. We use only certified organic sugar for three reasons: 1)Concern for the environment around sugar cane and sugar beet fields. 2) Most mass produced sugar from cane is processed using bone char and is therefore not technically vegan. 3)Sugar is a GMO-risk food and certified organic sugar cane and sugar beet farmers are prohibited from using GMO seed.
