Jam is a mixture of fruit and sugar boiled quickly and gently until the fruit is soft and thick enough to form a dollop. Jams make great fillings.
Jelly is juice-based, clear and firm—usually made from fruit juice but not necessarily….
Preserves are similar to jams but chunkier.
Conserves are cooked with dried fruits and nuts and have a very thick and chunky texture ideal as condiments for meats and cheeses.
Fruit Butter is created by slow-cooking fruit and sugar until it is opaque and just the right consistency—smooth and creamy.
Marmalade is a citrus spread made from the peel and pulp of the fruit. Marmalades are cooked for a long time and enjoyed as spreads and glazes.
Chutney is fruit-based with spices that give it an extra kick that adds zest to desserts or entrees.

I buy a lot of different jams to try but Annie’s are the only ones I finish! I ate the Rhubarb Sauce straight out of the jar. – Keene, NH
Last Friday night I attended the Farmers Market in Harrisville and I bought your Zucchini Relish. Well last night we had friends over for a little cook out and everyone tried the relish, they must have liked it as we are still friends. I am happy we purchased it. – T. Fallon
