Jams and preserves are a way of enjoying fruit all year round. In Catalonia there are numerous companies that make top quality jams and preserves using local fruits and vegetables and in keeping with natural processes.

A preserve is a mixture of sugar, water and the pulp and/or purée of one or more fruits or vegetables, set to the right consistency. The amount of fruit used in the preparation must be no less than 35% of the final product, whereas the sugar content must be at least 60%. Preserves have various uses beyond the most traditional at breakfast or afternoon tea. They are very versatile in confectionary (as fillings, toppings and sauces) and are increasingly found in dishes as an ingredient in a sauce or an accompaniment to a meat or cheese.
