Blueberry or blueberry?
Have you ever wondered where the difference between blueberry and blueberry is? Is there even one? The answer is yes! Both belong to the same genus and differ in the cultivation, size and color of the pulp - in colloquial language they are called blueberry or blueberry. Blueberry (Vaccinium myrtillus) is the name most commonly used in European forests and pagans. The berry is relatively small and very aromatic. Her skin and flesh are blue and whoever eats it gets blue teeth and a blue tongue. In supermarkets we find above all the culture blueberry. It comes from the American blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum), grows on a larger shrub, is larger and has light pulp.
Blueberries are extremely healthy and are now considered superfoods: they are true energy sources and rich in vitamins, minerals and fiber and have an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effect. Fresh or as a dried blueberry they taste wonderful in cereals, smoothies or as a snack in between. Which variety you use for the blueberry jam depends on your personal taste - but it is mainly the fresh fruits of the blueberry that lie on the fruit stalls.
Jam or jam
The fruity spread sometimes causes confusion and that's the name: jam, jam (extra), jelly or even fruit spread? Yes, how then? Guilt is the jam regulation or rather it should provide more insight and is only valid if you want to trade in the fruit for the bread. Because: jam may only be called the spreads that are made from citrus fruits. Everybody else calls jam with strawberry, raspberry, pear, quince or plum - as long as they have the right fruit-sugar ratio or the right fruit content. Incidentally, these rules do not apply to farmer or weekly markets and home you may call their fruit spread anyway anyway you want!
