THE MONKS AND THE JAM

Down tree-lined and shore-hugging Highway 26 is The Jam Pot. You kind of need to know that it’s there, otherwise you might miss it.

But most people who have been to the Keweenaw KNOW and don’t MISS it.

The Jam Pot is right next to Jacob’s Falls. I don’t think I’ve ever been to the Jam Pot when the small shop was empty. This year we tried muffins for the first time. They cost around $3.00 but are huge. Elizabeth chose a chocolate one and I chose a carrot cake muffin. We headed back to camp … and supper, so the muffins got left wrapped in the car. In fact, we didn’t eat them until two days later (on the way home) and they were sooooo moist and delicious. I truly wish I had bought more.

The jams, jellies and baked goods are made by the monks from the monastery across the road and most are made from local berries or fruit.
