Our traditional and organic compotes are cooked in pots with 85% fruit plus cane sugar. They require slower cooking than jam. Compote is not as sweet as jam, meaning it has a higher fruit content. Les Comtes de Provence has a wide range of compotes. Those recipes are made with 85% organic fruit plus organic cane sugar to enhance the flavours.
Traditional cooking pots
Les Comtes de Provence has opted to make its products using cooking pots. A traditional method used by artisanal jam makers and our grandmothers: the width of the pan spreads the heat so the fruit cooks evenly without overcooking. This enhances the concentration of taste and flavour. Cooking pots also help the environment, because the temperature rises faster and saves energy.
Rich in fruit
Our jams are rich in fruit (up to 75% for jams and 85% for compotes) and light in sugar. As for compotes, they are not as sweet and cook more slowly, making them richer in fruit.
Pure cane sugar
Cane sugar comes from sugar cane stalks and is an essential food ingredient. Known to be healthier than other sugars, cane sugar can be used in a variety of ways. Cane sugar is packed with a variety of nutrients that are essential for the human body to function properly.
