Let's celebrate!

JamJamboree is a celebration of all things jammy. The theme for 2012 is afternoon tea.

Unfortunately, jam in the U.K. is perceived as a second-rate commoditised product. We've fallen out of love with jam. It's time we reminisced with some tea, scones and jam...

Jam is cool. Jam reminds us of our childhoods, playing out in the sunshine with jam butties and mucky elbows. Jam went into the first cakes we made with our parents.

As adults, jam is fantastic with cheese, ice cream, croissants, brioche, meat, scones, pate, pancakes, and waffles. We are of course talking about 'proper jam', not the cheap, sugary stuff that seems to dominate the shelves nowadays. Yes, a 'smoothie in a jar', where you can really taste the fruit!

"I fully support your mission to improve the quality of our jams" - Mary Cadogan, Food Director for BBC Good Food magazine.

What makes a good jam?

Essentially, the fruit content should be as high as possible. Look out for jams which state: 'Prepared with 55g (or more) fruit per 100g'.
