The apricot is a highly prized fruit in Menorca, it is used in many typical island pastry recipes such as cookies or ensaimadas, but it is also one of the protagonists of the delicious jams we have on the island.
A great way to enjoy this delicious fruit that is grown in abundance on the island. A jam with a thick but smooth texture, with a yellowish orange color and a flavor made to surprise any palate.
Menorca is a land closely linked to the countryside, and like all places whose population is closely linked to the countryside, all the resources provided by the environment are used to eat and subsist. This is the case of jams and preserves, a gastronomic product closely linked to the Mediterranean culture and diet and which in Menorca has a very special value.
Although it is true that jams are very common practically everywhere, in Menorca the tradition is still preserved to make them in the same way as in the past. There are many families that today continue to take advantage of the fruits that their garden gives them to make jams and preserves with them, we can also boast of having jams with very own and original flavors such as figs, squash or melon.
