Jams and Sauces

Made with natural, local ingredients, our Market Quality Preserves might be the best jams you have ever tasted.

Market Quality Preserves are made by local youth in the heart of downtown Strathroy at The Next Wave Youth Centre. Under supervision, local youth prepare jams, chutney, salsa and sauces from start to finish. Youth gain skills and confidence in the kitchen while learning employment and life skills to help prepare for future success in the work place.

With every purchase of Market Quality Preserves, customers contribute to helping local youth build skills, confidence and independence to reach their potential.

Strawberry Rhubarb Jam. Youth Opportunities Unlimited has replicated this timeless classic. It tastes great on toast, bagels and croissants for a breakfast treat. It also makes for a great crepe filling, thumbprint cookie filling or use it in a vinaigrette.

Pumpkin Butter is a sweet and versatile condiment. It can spice up your typical PB&J sandwich, it is a great addition to a yogurt parfait or makes a great topping for cheesecake.

Peach Salsa infuses a sweet twist in a classic salsa. Sweet meets a touch of heat with the addition of jalapeño peppers and a dash of cayenne pepper. This peach salsa is great with tortilla chips, as a taco topping or on chicken or fish.

Saskatoon Berry Jam. If you have never tried it, then you are in for a treat. YOU Saskatoon Berry Jam has a sweet and nutty flavour. This preserve is a great topping for breads at breakfast time, a sweet twist to a ham or turkey sandwich at lunch, a glaze for chicken or ribs for dinner and as a topping for cheesecake or ice cream with dessert.

Pear, Pineapple and Orange Jam. YOU has preserved the taste of the tropics in our Pear, Pineapple and Orange Jam. These vibrant flavours unite in delicious harmony and “Pear” well (pardon the pun) with breakfast breads, soft cheeses and make the perfect addition to an afternoon tea.

4 Pepper Jam. Red, green, orange and jalapeño unite in perfect harmony in Youth Opportunities Unlimited 4 Pepper Jam. This quadrant of peppers is a great addition to a cheese and cracker plate, mixed with cream cheese as a dip or even in a margarita.

Cranberry Chutney is not just for Thanksgiving. Of course this preserve goes excellent with turkey dinner, leftover turkey sandwiches or as a topping on a turkey burger. It also is great in muffins, add it to BBQ sauce, apple sauce, smoothies or on a charcuterie plate.
