“What am I gonna do with all these figs?” The kids were tired of eating them, and Jan was tired of seeing them go to waste. Determined to find a way to use the figs, Jan turned to the internet, a few keystrokes later, and she was looking at a recipe for fig spread. Even with a recipe she liked, Jan couldn’t help but make some changes. Jan decided to use less sugar, she thought the figs were sweet enough on their own. Jan also knew she wanted to make something that was all natural, without artificial ingredients or preservatives. From those humble beginnings Just Jan's was founded. Today Just Jan's is a full line of gourmet fruit spreads and foods, made from recipes created by Jan, and without artificial ingredients or preservatives.
