Juin 2020

At the time of our creation in 1952, we cooked the fruits of the orchards of the surrounding Yvelines. At the time, cooking the fruits into jams was to be able to preserve them after the harvest seasons, to enjoy their flavors throughout the fall and winter!

Today, most of the orchards in Ile de France have disappeared. We had to look for fruits in other regions of France, in Europe, in the Dom-Tom and for the most exotic ones on the other side of the Earth!

Little by little, Andrésy Confitures developed an expertise in unique sourcing, born from its research of the best fruits for jam during more than 70 years!

Thanks to this expertise, we also know which fruits to associate for recipes of exceptional artisanal jams.

What if we shared with you some of our selection criteria and recipe know-how?

How does your artisanal jam maker source the best fruit for jam?

To choose the best fruits for jam, it is not enough to find a fruit with a delicious taste!

To make a jam, you need to “jam” the fruit, that is to say to boil it with sugar, for the right time (not too short, not too long) so that the osmosis between fruit and sugar is achieved and so to obtain a perfect jamming!

Here are some of our criteria to select the best fruits:

  • the harvest at maturity: for the taste of course, always in first criterion
  • the mode of culture: at Andrésy Confitures, we want well cultivated fruits, which had the time to grow correctly, to develop all their characteristic flavours
  • the conformity to the variety: we look for characteristics of taste, color and natural aspect
  • Suitability for cooking in jams: for fruits that are suitable for jamming, that do not mashed potato or prevent the osmosis of fruits and sugars that is essential for jamming

Did you doubt all these criteria? We include many more criteria in our specifications.
