The history of jam, marmalade and other preserves begins with the history of food preservation. After all, it was only a few centuries ago that that exact expertise was created making it possible to store foods over long periods of time. The history of preserving food takes its start in the Paleolithic period 2,6 million years ago; back when people started to preserve food which could make survival easier during times of scarcity.


Marmalade is a fruit preserve made from fruit, peel and berries boiled with sugar and water. Compared with jam a large quantity of water is added to the fruit in marmalade. The extra liquid being set by the high pectin content of the fruit, marmalade often contains more sugar than jam. The history of jam and marmalade dates to the ancient Greeks who used honey to preserve quinces.
