There are many types of preserves. This word is not used much any more, we often just say jam or jelly, but there is much more to them that that.
This is the simplest preserve of fruit cooked until soft with a little water, and sugar added.
This is pretty much the juice of the fruit, pectin and sugar combo.
Fruit butter and even Fruit Cheese are very traditional rural preserves used for horading up that bumper crop of apples, plums, apricots, and other fruits. Very soft and creamy
Apple Butter is one of our favorite preserves, and maybe one of the top 10 in the country, after pickles, strawberry jam, grape jelly, ketchup and salsa
I don’t have much to say about this as I pretty much don’t have hardly any experince with it. Mostly that it has a sharp fruit juice such as citrus and blended with eggs and butter… more…
Fruit Syrups and Cordials
I love making Rashpberry syrup and my kids love it on their ice cream. And you can make nice drinks with it.
Fruit Ratafia, Liqueurs and Flavored Vodkas
I was so pleased when (who) posted about the peach flavored….
Who doesn’t love orange marmalade spread across a nice piece of hot whole wheat toast in the morning with brunch?
Chutneys are not as well known here in the States as they are with the Mother country, home of the Queen Mother.
American love pickles, thats for sure, mostly the dill cucumber kind, but there are more kinds. Let me list a few;
- Dill Cucumber
- Bread and Butter Cucumber
There are lots of many different kinds of Ketchups, not just the red federally regulated stuff we pour on our hot dogs and hamburgers.
We all know my family loves salsa, it is by far the most popular condiment on the market today. A mixture of low-acid vegetables, such as onions, tomatoes, chilies, bell peppers and just about anything else you like from mangoes to peaches and grilled pineapple.
