Since moving to New York City in 2001, Nicole has always dreamt of starting her own jam company. Inspired by her memories of munching on homemade jam and freshly baked bread with her grandmother, Nicole started creating her own jams, combining the traditional knowledge her grandmother provided with unique twists on classic flavors. After receiving rave reviews every time friends and family tried a new Liebe is jam concoction, Nicole decided it was time to take what her grandmother taught her and make her American dream a reality.

In 2011, Nicole started selling her jams on Etsy.com. Liebe is jam features traditional flavors like Strawberry and Blueberry in addition to delicious combinations like Strawberry Rhubarb with Rosemary, and Blueberry Lemon with Cinnamon. Every jar of jam is homemade with natural and locally-sourced ingredients and packaged in WECK jars from Germany.

With Liebe is jam , Nicole wants to take her passion for creating jam and introduce her product to consumers in a way that brings jam beyond the traditional bread and breakfast standard here in the United States. Her savoury creations like Strawberry with Dark Chocolate and coconut Jam and Dark Cherry with Almond Jam are great for dessert or as an addition to any cheese plate. You’ll even find Glüh-wine Jam around the holidays, the traditional German Christmas flavor, which contains red wine, spiced with cinnamon sticks, vanilla pods, cloves, and citrus.

The list of jams Liebe is jam features is always changing based on seasonal ingredients and what flavors inspire Nicole when creating jam.
