Mrs. Miller’s Homemade Jam and Jelly—New Flavors Are In!

IMG_0555One of the things that we are proudest of at Amish Originals is our support of local products.  Local craftsmen make all of our furniture, but we also have some new and yummy consumables in the store—jams and jellies made by Mrs. Esther Miller of Fredericksburg, Ohio.  Mrs. Miller, a successful Amish entrepreneur and foodie, has been making noodles, jams and jellies since 1973. 

Despite the growth of her operation, Mrs. Miller’s is still based in Fredericksburg, nestled in the heart of Ohio’s Amish Country.  This spring we have some new flavors of jam and jelly on the shelves:


Red Raspberry Jalapeño

Caramelized Onion and Chive

FROG-Fig, Raspberry, Orange and Ginger

Hopping FROG- with Jalapeño

Red Pepper

Raspberry Key Lime




Red Currant


…to name a few!

Mrs. Miller does recommend a few recipes for her products outside of the typical jam or jelly use; here are a couple of our favorites:

Hot Pepper Jelly Deviled Eggs

6 hard-boiled eggs

1/4 cup Mrs. Miller’s Hot Pepper Jelly

1 tablespoon mayonnaise

1/8 teaspoon salt

Peel and slice eggs in half lengthwise.

Remove yolks and mash them in a small mixing bowl

Add remaining ingredients into the mashed yolks

Spoon or pipe evenly into the egg whites.

Yields 6 servings


Onion Jam Cheese Ball

12oz. cream cheese, softened

2 tablespoons sour cream

3/4 cup crumbled bacon

1/2 cup dried cranberries

2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped

Pinch of salt

1 – 8oz Mrs. Miller’s Caramelized Onion & Chive Jam

Mix first six ingredients together in a medium bowl, until well blended. Form the mixture into a ball and flatten slightly on top.  Wrap tightly and chill for several hours.  Before serving, pour the jam over the top of the cheese ball and serve with crackers.

Yields 12 servings

Stop by the store on the First Fourth Friday of the season on April 26—we’ll have Mrs. Miller’s products out so you can taste them for yourself!
