‘Live Well’: Homemade jam businesses featured in ‘Bakersfield Life’

Wednesday, Oct 22 2014 05:00 PM

It’s sticky, fruity and delicious all in one container. What is it? Jam! “Bakersfield Life” magazine specialty publications coordinator Katelynn Camp went on a jam hunt around Bakersfield to find the best of the best.

Wednesday on “Live Well” Camp talked about her article that in the November issue of the magazine. “I learned everything about jam,” Camp said.

But Camp wasn’t the only one enlightened by the sticky concoction. “Bakersfield Life” assistant editor Rachel Cook was so inspired she cooked up her own strawberry jalapeno jam.

“I was decently pleased with how it came out,” Cook said. Cook said anyone could make it. Besides enjoying a spoonful on toast every morning yourself, Cook said jam is a  perfect Christmas gift.
