Since ancient times, foodies have developed various recipes for preserving fruits by cooking them with wine or honey.
But to taste jams as we know them, you have to wait for the first crusades and the introduction of cane sugar from the Arab world. This luxury food allows the transformation of fruit into jam, only reserved for royal tables. At the beginning of the 19th century, the production of beet sugar democratized this product. In Paris, many jam makers opened their stalls and supplied themselves with fruit from the surrounding orchards.
