If you have canning jars that you would like to donate, please leave them at the Bella Vista Historical Museum. If the museum is not open, just leave the jars next to the front door and I guarantee that they will get to me. I personally use 8-oz., 4-oz. and 12-oz. jars, but I forward any larger jars to a very appreciative home if you are trying to get rid of some of those, too.

I love to get donations of fruit if they are in sufficient quantity to make jam. Please contact me to discuss the particulars of what you have. Remember that I give everything away for the benefit of the museum and the more fruit I have, the more jam I can make. More jam means more donations!


I especially love working with native fruits, as I give talks on the historic cuisine of Bella Vista and Benton County. I've already made some "native fruit" jams for folks to sample and I would love to make some others.
