Confiture

 

a variety of jam, a jelly with evenly distributed whole or crushed fruits (berries), cooked with sugar and jelling substances (most often pectin). Fruits and berries that are raw, freshly frozen, or preserved in jars are used. Prepared fruits are blanched, then cooked in sugar syrup with jelling substances, citric acid, and sometimes vanillin. The term “confiture” is used principally in Hungary and Bulgaria.
