Jams and preserves have become a European food tradition. In many less urbanized parts of the Old Continent, a large part of the population still prepares them, jars them, and keeps them in a cellar. They are known and liked by both children and adults. Their very typical packaging is a jar with which they are most associated in this part of the world. Poles, Hungarians, or Czechs most often make raspberry preserves and also blackcurrant, strawberry, cranberry, green walnut, blackberry, and blueberry. Europeans produce them from fresh fruit and vegetables, which makes them extremely tasty and retains more vitamins. Apart from that, they are usually low-sugar, unpreserved but often pasteurized products. Moreover, for example, Poles specialize in confitures prepared from a few kinds of fruit combined. The most delicious combination is a mix of sweet and sour, for example, currants, and apricots. Many of them, despite the demanding preparation procedure, maintain mineral elements and soluble fiber.
Jams and preserves are healthy and fashionable. Across the ocean, you can buy them, but many Old Continent inhabitants prepare them themselves. Thanks to this, even factory production does not differ much from home production. Eastern Europe is particularly fond of Polish Strawberry Jams. They produce them from fruits such as plum, strawberry, currant, blackberry, apricot, forest berry, rosehip, and bitter cherry. They are usually used in sandwiches such as Plum Low Sugar Spread, Polish Style Strawberry Spread, or Romanian Cranberry Spread.
