Green Briar is also the home of the Green Briar Jam Kitchen. Ever since Ida Putnam began the Jam Kitchen in 1903, visitors have come to Green Briar to savor the aromas of fresh fruits cooking on the stove or in the heat of the sun. Today the Jam Kitchen is a "living museum" where visitors may view the cooking process first-hand. The kitchen still operates using Ida’s recipes and preparing the jams, jellies, relishes and pickles the "old fashioned way" in the turn-of-the-century kitchen. Green Briar’s sun-cooked preserves are cooked slowly and gently in the oldest commercial solar-cooking operation in the country. They make mouth-watering toppings for ice cream or desserts.
Jam Kitchen products are for sale in the gift shop or by mail order. Sales help support the Thornton W. Burgess Society’s education programs and keep alive the spirit and teachings of Thornton W. Burgess.
A series of jam-making workshops are offered to the public teaching jam-making and preserving by traditional Green Briar methods. Participants take home what they make plus a recipe booklet.
