Pam the Jam

Location: River Cottage HQ, United Kingdom

About Me: Some twenty years ago Pam and her husband bought a small jam making business called Thursday Cottage. Here they spent their days making wonderful jams, jellies, curds and marmalades under the Thursday Cottage label. Always using good, wholesome, seasonal ingredients, their products soon became firm favourites with jam-lovers the world over. Having hung up her professional wooden spoon, Pam still loves to pot- up and pickle whatever or whenever she can. With fellow preserver Liz Neville, she now runs the Preserves course at River Cottage. In 2008, her first book Preserves was published as part of the River Cottage Handbook series.
