Jam - compote

The history of the jam starts from the Ancient Greece, as a way of preserving initially the quince and then other fruits. The first written reference to jam was found in a Roman cookbook. In Mediaeval Times the manufacture of jam evolved and took its present form around the 17th century. The word marmalade comes from the Portuguese word marmelo, which means quince as Portugal has been closely connected with its production and dissemination, thanks to candied quince exported in the 16th century in England, Scotland and France. Jams are one of the main choices for breakfast, not randomly, as they contain a lot of simple sugars, which are absorbed very quickly by the body, thereby increasing blood glucose at high levels within very short time. This makes them sole source of energy.
