About this project
Crème de la Crème® confiture extra is a unique style of french jams that dates back centuries but has yet to be discovered in the US. Julie Myrtille combines traditional techniques and fresh, inventive ingredients to create a full line of confiture extra called Crème de la Crème® to be made, bottled, and sold from Austin, TX.
Confiture extra is much lower in sugar than typical jam and free of preservatives.
When you taste Crème de la Crème® confiture extra, you will never forget it!

To create a full line of Crème de la Crème® for stores and online, Julie Myrtille is facing some pretty large expenses, such as: license & permit, commercial kitchen fees, insurance, website, etc. The estimated cost is $15,000.
She is asking for a little help from those who love her products and want to see her take it to the next level, so her goal is to raise $5,000.
Julie Myrtille has been making jams for 15 years in Paris. Crème de la Crème® represents the culmination of years of work, finding stunning flavors and centuries old recipes to make food that is authentic and sincere to a tradition of culinary arts in France.
