Advice from your brand of jam for summer fruits: one of the oldest French professional jam makers answers your questions

Which fruits to choose to make good jams?

Did you know that the fruits preferred by consumers for jam are red or black fruits? Yellow fruits are more traditionally used for pies.

You can use fruits from your garden, as long as you don’t use pesticides or chemical treatment products that are harmful to consumption. You can also buy your fruits at the market, from your local shopkeeper, or from the producer or arborist near you.

The expert advice of Andrésy Jams: the fruits must be picked at maturity to benefit from the benefits of the sun and to have all their natural organoleptic qualities.

One of our biggest expertise is our know-how in fruit sourcing: we choose for our brand of jam only the best fruits on the best soils!

Can we make a jam with the least possible sugar or even a jam without sugar?

When we talk about jam, we talk about “confisage”: confiscating fruits with sugar in “jam” was a way to preserve them all year long. So you need sugar to cook a “jam”.

Did you know that the French legislation requires a recipe to contain 55% of sugar measured after cooking in order to be called “jam”?

At least, even if you don’t add any sugar and you reduce your preparation as much as possible, the fruits contain sugar naturally.

Today we have other means of conservation which allow us to reduce the sugar: the cold, the preserve, etc.

At Andrésy Confitures we know how to make less sweetened jams and light jams. We even developed recipes 100% from fruits for a customer.
