Jellies & Jams


In the late 70’s, my grandparents operated a produce stand Dowdy’s Market and Country Store. Inside was a wonderful combination of homemade jellies, jams, vinegar, and fresh produce. It was also a great place for everyone in our large family and close-knit community to congregate and solve the world’s problems. My grandmother, Elsie Dowdy had a kitchen set up in the back of the market, and every day customers could smell the delicious, heartwarming simmering goodness coming from her old stock pot.  

Forty years later, we at Outer Banks Gluten Free Baker offer the same charm and aura of Grandma Elsie’s jellies and jams. We believe that jams should be authentic and different from other options on the market. As such, some of our distinctive combinations have changed considerably from Grandma Elsie’s traditional homemade jellies (some recipes are exactly the same), but just like hers we source our ingredients from produce grown in our garden and by local farmers. We use only the finest ingredients and produce small, handmade batches of our jellies and jams.

Made From Only Natural Ingredients:

Our goodies are made from the freshest fruit and produce, real cane sugar (no high fructose corn syrup), organic when available, and non GMO ingredients. Some of our distinctive options are Southern Onion Marmalade, Love In A Jar, Apple Butter, Hot Pepper Jellies, and Jezebel Sauce.

Previously, our jams and jellies could only be purchased through various farm markets and co-ops. We had an overwhelming request for our jellies online.
You can now buy our jellies and jams on our website. Call us at 252.619.2332 or email us at for any questions. If you do not see what you are looking for, do not hesitate to call. We may be able to create something just for you!
