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.
