"No Grape Jam in France" !!!

Jump to last reply

My middle-aged French friend visiting me said this morning as she was slathering beaucoups amounts of grape jelly on her bread that "we don't have grape jam in France" - something that simply shocked me.

"What the French don't make or eat grape jam or jelly with all those grapes," I retorted.

"No," my French friend said - I make jam out of quince and some berries but not grapes."

Well lordy lordy the French with all their grapes have never thought to make jam or jelly out of them - they certainly have lots of other types of jam so why not grape?

"Perhaps we use all our grapes for wine," my friend speculated.

So maybe folks asking those perpetual questions about what can I bring French friends they do not have - perhaps the answer besides the old standby 'beef jerky' could also be 'grape jam," if my friend is indeed correct .
