What Our Customers Have to Say...
Another locally owned delight was Jackie’s Jams and Jellies from Rochester. Owner, Jackie Kukurudza was not present at the corn festival however her sisters Luba McCann and Ursula Boothe sold jams and jellies on her behalf.
“We come to the corn festival every year to sell these jams and jellies,” said Boothe.
Jackie’s Jams and Jellies offers over 50 flavors ranging from coconut walnut to raspberry jalapeno.
“Jackie has a certified kitchen in Rochester,” said Boothe. “All of the jams are made in small batches and take a long time to make.”
Jackie’s Jams and Jellies has traveled to as far as Buffalo however only sells at local craft shows.
“When people first see our prices they normally think that our prices are high but that’s only because they don’t know what goes into making jams and jellies, if they did they would realize they are worth every penny,” said Boothe.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE YOUR JAMS!!!
I have been confusing everyone referring to "my jam" and by now every one knows that your Raspberry Jalapeno is my favorite snack. You were so wonderfully personable when I met you at the Lilac Festival in Rochester NY and now I am hooked. I have to have more! Thank you for sharing your gift with the rest of us!
"It's a HIT!! People LOVE it and are coming to me with recipes/or how they used it!!
Tropical has been used on top of ice cream, on top of baked Sweet potatos, AND as a dip for chicken nuggets!!! WooHoo!!!! The only thing your fans are requesting is, can you make it in a quart sized bottle!!"
"Hi Jackie, I just wanted to let you know everyone just loved the jam jars. They were very impressed with the label and the charm. All of us were so happy that you had put them all together for us. Kelly, the bride to be,
Just loved them and loved how the color combo turned out. I will definitely be handing out your business cards."
"Merry Christmas! My family is sitting around the breakfast table this fabulous Christmas morning enjoying a wide variety of Jackie's Jams and Jellies that we received as gifts. We have fallen in love with your jams over the last few years and appreciate the new and unique flavors that we can't find anywhere else but are always delicious. Thanks again for providing us with these fabulous treats and I hope you have a wonderful holiday."
