Jams, Jellies, Marmalades, and Preserves

Jams, Jellies, Marmalades, and Preserves

Some of the most popular condiments served alongside breakfast items are jams, jellies, marmalades, and preserves. Since these sweet spreads enhance the flavor of toast, muffins, bagels, and other baked goods, it’s important to understand the differences in flavor and consistency in order to find the best option for your menu and for your customers. First, decide whether you’d like a smooth or textured consistency. If you prefer larger chunks or pieces of fruit in your spreads, try preserves and marmalades. Made from both the flesh and the rind of the fruit, marmalades offer a bittersweet taste and are typically made from citrus fruits. Preserves offer a denser and heavier texture because whole chunks of fruit, such as berries, are cooked with sugar to the point of turning into a syrupy base. If you’re looking for something a bit smoother, try a jam. This sweet spread is made by cooking fresh fruit pieces and combining them with lemon juice to form thick pectin with a smooth texture. Fruit jams and jellies offer a firm, clear consistency since these types of condiments don’t contain whole chunks of fruit and are easily spreadable. Next, consider how frequently you plan to serve jelly and in what quantities would work best for your business. We have jam and jelly containers ranging from individual size packets, which are perfect for diners or self-serve condiment holders, all the way up to 4 lb. glass jars for high volume use in commercial kitchens, school cafeterias, and bakeries. Flavors such as strawberry, apricot, red raspberry, and grape are just some of the more common breakfast staples, while other spreads, like honey and apple butter, add sweetness to breakfast items. By understanding the different textures and flavors of these spreads, you can easily find a jar of jam, jelly, marmalade, or preserves that would work best for your business and your customers. If you’re looking for other breakfast-related products, be sure to check out our selection of commercial toasters, citrus juicers, and commercial coffee machines, to make the perfect breakfast for your customers.

Customer questions about this product

I previously ordered these portion cups and they were aluminum. The new portion cups I received are plastic with a metallic appearance. Why is this packaging different?
Dickinson's is discontinuing their aluminum portion cup and is transitioning to a new metalized plastic cup. Both feature similar eye-catching graphics. Compared to the aluminum cups, the plastic alternative is easier to open and reduces the number of dented cups. The metallic finish still provides a more upscale look than standard plastic portion cups.
