Jams and preserves are always a thoughtful gift that says “homemade with love” and nothing beats the taste of fresh fruit jam. And when you make it yourself, one bonus is that you can control the amount of sugar used.
Jam-making is a traditional way to preserve perishable fruit, as it helps to ensure you can still enjoy the taste after their short harvest season is over. Fresh homemade fruit jam can also be good for you, with the best quality fruit yielding the best jams.
