Jams and Preserves

What is a Jelly?
Jelly is made from the finest fruit juices, and contains no pieces of fruit. Jellies maintain a consistent texture and see through appearance. Jellies are easy to spread and have a smooth even texture.

What is a Jam ?
Jam is made from the whole fruit either cooked until the fruit starts to soften and break down to small pieces, crushed, or pureed to provide a thick, textured spread with the best flavor from the fruit. Because jams include the whole fruit, it will have a delicious, stronger flavor than the Jelly.

What is a Preserve?
Preserves are made from whole pieces or large chunks of fruit and are cooked to the point where the fruit is suspended. The texture of a preserve tends to be chunkier than a jam with larger chunks of the fruit pieces preserved.

What is a Conserve?
Conserves are similar to a fruit jam or fruit preserve but are made with pecans, walnuts, almonds or other nuts along with the fruit.
