But be careful, it is important to make sure where and how this preparation is produced: the best jams, such as those found on Spaghetti and Mandolin, have a precise percentage of fruit and are produced with an eye for quality that, often and willingly, is synonymous with goodness.

Jam: story of a word

Jams really began to appear on tables in the Middle Ages, despite the presence of alternative versions already in &' antiquity, for which, however, wine or honey were used in the preparation, instead of sugar. The actual term jam comes from the Portuguese word “jam”, which translated means “marmelo jam”. If we then go to see the meaning of the word 'marmelo', we will discover that we speak of a quince, so it can be deduced that the most common jam, at least originally, was the quinced one. Over time, the word jam, imported from Portuguese, ended up defining every type of fruit jam, a unitary definition that nowadays d&' today it is kept in the common language but which in reality it is wrong to keep. The terms jam and jam today are all' more than synonyms, especially

by law.

Difference between jam and jam

It's easy to confuse the terms' jam 'and' jam ', thinking that the two products they define match. Even if in common language the two words overlap, the two preparations are very different, a diversity enshrined in a law. According to this, jam is a product made with sugar and citrus fruits, which can be oranges, tangerines, and lemons, but also more rarely made with citron, bergamot or grapefruit. In this preparation, the percentage of fruit must be at least 20%. Also according to the law, derived from a European directive, jam can be defined as a compound containing sugar and pulp of all other types of fruit in a percentage not lower than 35% in the case of normal jam, and 45% in the case of extra jam. Long story short, the term jam indicates a sweet preparation made only with citrus fruits, while jam means a product derived from all other types of fruit. Now, it is obvious that the two products are similar, both in preparation and in use, but it is certainly important to clarify, to also be sure of what you are buying

The legends about &'

origin of jam

Since the real origin of jam is rather vague, it is understandable that some legends flourished around its birth. One of the best known would attribute the creation of the jam d&' oranges to Catherine of Aragon, who, after marrying King d&' England Henry VIII, felt nostalgic for her land. For this reason, he would have designed the first orange jams, to be able to carry a small piece of it with him, being able to keep his beloved fruits longer.
According to a &' another curious legend, jam was created by the servants of the French court. Legend has it that Maria de&' Medici, after her marriage to Henry IV of France, suffered from a severe vitamin deficiency. To remedy the problem, some men of the court were sent to Italy to recover the precious citrus fruits of Sicily. It's a pity that, once they picked the citrus fruits, they realized that the precious fruits would not survive the long road back to Paris. So it was that the courtiers, among whom there were fortunately the Tuscan pastry chefs, who were in the service of the queen, invented a way to preserve citrus fruits for a longer time, making jams from them. The name itself derives from the inscription on the boxes carried by the courtiers: “for Sick Mary”, distorted

and modified over time.

In any case, whether you believe these legends or not, if you want the security of certified quality and the goodness of a product ready to add a little' of sweetness to every moment of your day, go and browse our delicious jams, you won't regret it!
