DALEVILLE, Ind., July 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- According to a survey from Jarden Home Brands, makers of Ball® Brand Fresh Preserving Products, 80% of fresh preserving consumers preserve jam and 52% preserve jelly. Visitor traffic to FreshPreserving.com, the Ball brand fresh preserving website, indicates that Strawberry Jam is America's clear favorite flavor of jam, commanding nearly half of all jam and jelly recipe page views. But it's not just berries that are taking center stage this season. Pepper and Jalapeno jellies are also extremely popular with consumers looking to spice it up. Whatever they are in the mood for this season, the Ball Brand FreshTECH Automatic Jam & Jelly Maker makes creating these recipes and dozens of others simple and easy.

Taking the guesswork out of making fresh jams and jellies, the Ball Brand FreshTECH Automatic Jam & Jelly Maker is a first-of-its-kind appliance in the US that helps home cooks capture the freshness of summer in less than 30 minutes. Home cooks can enjoy the jams and jellies immediately or preserve them to share with friends and family at a later time.

"Nothing says summer like a fresh, homemade jar of jam or jelly and the FreshTECH Automatic Jam & Jelly Maker helps cooks create this seasonal treat with the push of a button," said Chris Carlisle, Vice President of Marketing at Jarden Home Brands for Ball brand fresh preserving products. "The Jam & Jelly Maker has made it easier than ever to create homemade jams and jellies, so consumers can feel confident they will have a perfect product to savor and share every single time."

The Ball Brand FreshTECH Jam & Jelly Maker can transform Farmers Market finds or surplus produce from a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) share into over 50 recipes available at www.FreshPreserving.com. Simply mash your fruit or add your fruit juice and pectin; a few moments later the appliance will direct you to add sugar. The SmartStir™ Technology constantly and consistently stirs jams and jellies to prevent overcooking and burning, making the first batch as good as the last.

The FreshTECH Automatic Jam & Jelly Maker is available at department stores nationally and online at FreshPreservingStore.com for $99.99 MSRP.
