Fall is many people’s most popular season, for a whole bunch of different reasons. Not only is fall arguably the most beautiful season of all, it also happens to be a foodie’s heaven.
Fall is a season for comfort, and what better way to comfort and soothe your soul than a delicious, sweet, and fruity jam?
If you love the flavors of fall and are a self-professed jam lover, here’s a look at 6 fruit jams and preserves to indulge in this fall season.
Pear with vanilla
Pears are the perfect early fall fruit. They’re sweet, they’re tart, and they go incredibly well with sweet and savory dishes alike.
One ingredient that works unbelievably well with pears is vanilla, which is why this pear and vanilla jam is such a winner.
This jam can be used to make a warming spiced fruit fall tart, or it can be gently heated and spooned over rich vanilla ice cream and enjoyed as a rich and creamy snack.

Ginger preserve with malt whiskey
Ginger is another spice that is synonymous with the colder months of the year, which is why so many people consider it a fall classic.
For those cold and stormy fall days where you just can’t seem to get warm, this ginger preserve with malt whiskey will warm you from the tips of your toes to the top of your head.
This ginger and malt whiskey preserve pairs incredibly well with freshly toasted teacakes and lightly salted butter.

Cranberry sauce with port
Here we have two flavors that are commonly associated with the festive period, yet work incredibly well with some of the flavors commonly associated with the fall months.
