What jams do English people prefer?
I want to know if English people like jams and if they often eat it? What brands do they prefer? Do they like the original tastes?
Thank you very much

The English have a sweet tooth and we love to make jams and preserves. One of the most famous is English marmalade
,traditionally made from bitter Seville oranges. It's one of the first jams I make each year, as Seville Oranges are in season during February.
We love all kinds of fruit jams, from strawberry to raspberry, red and black currant, apricot, black cherry, plum and blackberry.
If you visit a farmers market in England, you often find someone selling home-made jams and preserves. Some of the recipes - like rhubarb and ginger - are very old. Some, like strawberry and champagner or plum and port are a little more recent.
In England, jam is not just for breakfast. We also use it to bake tea treats and make the most wonderful puddings, like Jam Roll
or the famous Bakewell pudding.
