Find Preserves in
Preserves evolved before the invention of refrigeration as a way to hold
onto the goodness of fruit after its short season of ripeness. They have
been central to U.S. farming and eating from the Colonial times.
Helen Bullock, in "The Williamsburg Art of Cookery", wrote that "Pickles, preserves, jellies, and conserves were such staple table delicacies in Colonial Virginia that one can rarely examine the inventory of a person's estate without finding preserving kettles, stone and earth jars, jelly glasses, and an abundance of utensils for making and serving them."
Preserves also had a special meaning for the Pennsylvania Dutch, famously wonderful family farmers: they emigrated from Germany because of religious persecution, where their enemies had often destroyed their crops, cut down their orchards, and dug up their vines in winter. When the Pennsylvania Dutch arrived in the New World, they were determined to preserve their food, and do it in such a way as to make it taste as delicious as fresh food.
