Wild Maine Blueberry Jam
Just just sweet, intensely flavorful wild maine blueberries, the right amount of sugar and a splash of lemon is what we use in our crafted, top selling wild maine blueberry jam. Bursting with tiny, hand-raked maine blueberries to enhance your favorite morning bread. Perfect to spread on pancakes, enjoy an extra special pb&j, or surprise someone with breakfast in bed!
Red Pepper Jelly
Our top-selling red pepper jelly is the perfect blend of bright flavorful red peppers, sugar, mellow vinegar and just the right kick of jalapeno and chili pepper. Create the perfect snack, red pepper jelly and cream cheese on crackers for easy entertaining.
Hot Pepper Jelly
Sweet and spicy collide in a cornucopia of perfection. Another one of our essential pantry items for a quick no nonsense appetizer. Hot peppers add some heat for a sweet and savory combination in stonewall kitchen hot pepper jelly. Also adds great flavor to asian dishes, pan sauces and stir fry.
Roasted Garlic Onion Jam
You may not know what you're missing! Stonewall's roasted garlic onion jam combines slow-roasted garlic, sweet onions and balsamic vinegar for a savory balance and a harmony of flavors; the perfect accompaniment for glazing vegetables or combine with cream cheese for quick and flavorful toasted focaccia bread. Invite the neighbors over.
Strawberry Jam
Big chunks of bright, sun ripened, sweet strawberries make our strawberry jam an exceptional American classic bursting with memories of summer. Turn a traditional pb& j into a delectable treat. Strawberry jam also makes a wonderful sauce for ice cream when slightly warmed.
Raspberry Peach Champagne Jam
We combine sweet peaches, refreshing raspberries, add champagne and pop! - A perfectly vibrant, sweet tasting jam to liven up your mornings. Stonewall kitchen jam is full of fruit and only all natural ingredients to bring a sophisticated twist to your table. Share it with a friend over morning coffee and delight in the day ahead.
Black Raspberry Jam
Notable winner in the category of outstanding jam/sweet topping at the international fancy food show, stonewall kitchen black raspberry jam is a truly exceptional jam bursting with the juicy flavor of ripened black raspberries. Spoon black raspberry jam onto all your favorite breakfast breads. Use as a perfect complement to roasted chicken or pork for your next outdoor concert picnic.
Red Raspberry Jam
Sun ripened red raspberries, the kind that stain your lips and hands after an afternoon at a pick-your-own farm is what makes our red raspberry jam an essential for your pantry. This sweet and slightly tart jam just about livens up any bread or dessert. Drizzle warmed stonewall red raspberry jam over vanilla ice cream and praises of delectableness will be sung in your honor.
Mango Chutney
The all-natural goodness of mangos is the essence of our take on an original, stonewall kitchen mango chutney. We blend fresh mangos with delectable and complementary spices to bring a bit of island flare to your grilled fish and meats.

A nice little ice cream store located in a small shopping center near US 41 and Stickney Point Rd. They have 40 flavors of ice cream with gluten-free alternatives. We enjoyed our dish and will go back.
