Trappist Preserves || Damson Plum Jam - From The Trappist Monks of Saint Joseph’s Abbey

Product Overview

The monks of Saint Joseph’s Abbey were inspired to begin Trappist Preserves in 1954 after a stovetop batch of mint jelly from the Abbey herb garden quickly sold out at the Abbey gift shop. From this humble beginning, Trappist Preserves has grown to be recognized throughout North America as a premier, all-natural brand of preserves, jams, jellies, and conserves. Trappist Preserves products are renowned for superior flavor, vibrant color, consistency of gel, texture, and distribution of fruit in each jar. Their sources are carefully selected to ensure the freshest ingredients. No artificial coloring, flavors or preservatives are ever used in Trappist Preserves!

Work has always been greatly esteemed in the Cistercian tradition, since it gives the monks the opportunity to follow in Christ's footsteps and share in His Divine work of creation and restoration. Every purchase from Trappist Preserves helps to provide for the livelihood of the Monks and for their ability to care for the poor.

St. Joseph's Abbey is a monastery of the Catholic Order of Cistercians of the Strict Observance (O.C.S.O.), popularly known as the "Trappists", located in Spencer, Massachusetts. The Abbey was founded in 1950 by Belgian and French Trappist monks from the Monastery of Our Lady of the Valley in Valley Falls, Rhode Island, which had burned to the ground. In the rustic hills of central New England, they established a new home in which to follow an age-old contemplative way of life.

    I have yet to try this jam as it is a Christmas gift. Damson Plum is one of my favorite fruits. I am pairing it with peanut butter for a yummy gift.

    I bought 6 jars of Trappist jams...and made a mistake of not reading the ingredients...they are nothing but sugar...there is not the color nor the taste of Damson....and at $12. 99 a jar.... is a real scam...What a disappointment not only in the product but to have the Monastery being involved in this regretful. This is not what I bought in the past...And will never buy again...I hope some of the money went to the Monks...
