Marmelade f (genitive Marmelade, plural Marmeladen)

Usage notes[edit]

  • An EU directive introduced in 1979 at the insistence of the British government prescribes that only jams prepared with citrus fruits can be sold as Marmelade. (Since 2003 an exemption exists for local products sold directly to the end user.) Therefore jam is generally sold as Konfitüre, which is the Swiss word for jam. This officialism has little bearing on common usage, however, where Marmelade remains the vastly predominant word.[1]
