Alain Milliat's French strawberry jam is made with only three ingredients:strawberries, sugar and pectin. This classic confiture captures peak season sengana strawberries—it's aromatic with a firm, yet spreadable texture and pieces of fruit.
Ah, mais oui—what does the extra mean? In France, jams designated as extra contain 50% or more fruit. Alain Milliat's fruit preserves are made with 55% fruit, or in this case, 63 grams of strawberries per 100 grams of jam.
Refrigerate after opening.
How to use
Spread this French strawberry jam across a thick piece of toast generously topped with ricotta and finish with a sprinkling of sea salt. This jam also plays well with savory main courses—try mixing with red wine to make a pan sauce for duck or chicken thighs.
About the producer
In 1983, third generation farmer, Alain Milliat took over his family business in Orliénas, France, near Lyon. M. Alain Milliatspent the next 15 years restoring and cultivating 15 plots of land, planting a variety of fruits and vegetables using traditional farming methods.
In 1997, M. Alain Milliat launched Alain Alain Milliat Jus de Degustation with six juices and nectars highlighting French-grown produce. Now, almost 25 years later, their catalog has grown to include dozens of single-varietal juices and nectars—including non-alcoholic Cabernet and Chardonnay juices, Senga Sengana strawberry nectar and more—plus a selection of jams and condiments.
All of Alain Milliat’s products are crafted with the quality, flavor and freshness of the fruit in mind. For their classic French offerings, M. Alain Milliatsources fruit from across the country, working with farmers who are using sustainable, organic and zero-waste growing methods. The fruit is harvested at peak ripeness and transported to their factory in Valence—located in the southeast central Drôme region of France—where it is processed, bottled and jarred. Their products are also crafted with sustainability in mind, too—from energy efficient equipment to bottles created with 70% recycled glass. The fruit pulp leftover from juicing is also recycled and repurposed locally.
