Cookbook | Recipes | Ingredients | Jams and Jellies

Jam is unfiltered solidified fruit syrup, sometimes containing large chunks of fruit.

The fruit is crushed or pureed, then boiled to reduce the amount of water. Depending on the type of fruit, additional pectin or sugar may need to be added. If there is not enough pectin, the jam will not solidify.
