Tiptrees repond

I emailed Tiptrees jam to ask why some of their products are called jellies, preserves and conserves rather than jam and what on earth is a fruit spread:

Dear Ms Brooks,

Thank you for your e-mail regarding 'Tiptree' preserves.

The term Jam, Preserve and Conserve mean exactly the same.

A Jelly is made with the fruit juice rather than the fruit pieces.

In our range the fruit spread is called so because we sweeten the
product with grape juice rather than sugar and therefore it cannot
legally be called a Conserve as it doesn't have a high enough sugar

I hope this has been of some help but if I can be of any further
assitance please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards

Stacey Ellis
