History of Jam
Believe it or not, jam-making is ancient. Well, maybe not jam itself, but the idea of preserving foods using honey or sugar is super old. In Ancient Greece, preserving foods in honey was a common practice – not quite a jam, but close!
The very first jam recipe, probably, dates to the fourth century AD. That’s pretty old, but it still holds up to this day. You can’t beat a delicious and sweet jam. Unless you create something like a jalapeño-bacon jam recipe that adds some spice and some savory into your sweetness for the ultimate combo.
