Fruit preserves are familiar ingredients in baking, making drinks, and daily cooking. However, it is not easy to choose a high-quality jar of the preserve among hundreds of brands. So what are some of the most characteristic qualities of a high-quality jar of preserve?

1. Fresh fruity flavor

High-quality preserves don’t use artificial flavor, so the taste won’t be too overwhelming. Instead, the preserve will inherit the airy and mild fragrance of fresh fruits.

2. A balanced taste


A jar of high-quality preserve does not include only sweetness but also a delicate balance between flavors. Qualified preserves must not be overly sweet, sour, or bitter, but every flavor must be finely tuned so that the overall taste is perfectly balanced.

More than just a mix of fruits, a jar of high-quality preserve brings you on a culinary journey that will certainly amaze your taste buds. Layers after layers of flavors dancing harmonically with one another are the key quality of great preserves.

3. Texture

High-quality preserves have a balanced texture, not too thick and not too watery. Thick jellies such as gelatin or watery variants are not considered qualified.

4. Natural ingredients


High-quality preserves must be made from 100% natural fruits grown and harvested through special processes that allow the fruits to preserve their fresh flavours and nutritional values without the need for preservatives and artificial flavourings or colourings.
