Usage notes[edit]

In Germany and Austria Marmelade is a generic term for jam; it does not correspond to English marmalade (citrus fruit variety of jam). However, according to EU regulation 2001/113/EG from 2003 only jams prepared with citrus fruits can be sold as Marmelade.[1] Any other jam is to be called Konfitüre which is also the common Swiss German term.
