Emily Myers used to be a counselor but founded Emily G's Jams after she and a neighbor went on a routine playdate with their children picking strawberries in 2008. After picking more then they could eat, they made their first batch of strawberry jam. After sharing it with family and friends, the requests for more started rolling in. What started as a lark quickly became a fulltime business. Now Emily G's jams can be found in farmers markets, online, and in retail locations nationwide. Her culinary skills have been showcased on many shows and magazines, from CNN to Martha Stewart to Southern Living.
