Aletha Thomas, a former schoolteacher, launched Monkeypod Jam in 2010 when she was placed on furlough. Each furlough Friday, Aletha would pull out her French copper pot and make jams and jellies using ripe Kauai fruit. With each batch, she was preserving the season’s harvest while also preserving childhood memories of her grandmas, both of whom she remembers preserving the season’s local bounty.

In February of 2014, Aletha enrolled in Hawaii’s Master Preserving Program. Now certified as a Master Preserver and with over twelve years of teaching experience, Aletha is eager to share the ins and outs of home preservation with others who share her interest and passion of preserving the seasons.
