I used to think that jam is no different from, for example, jam or jam. But when I grew up, I realized that this sweetness has its differences: in jam fruits and berries retain their original shape, being in a viscous syrup. And recently I learned, that jams can be still and dry! Dedicated to sweet tooth)
Dry jam spread to the Russian Empire Kiev businessman Nikolai Balabukh. Later, the sweetness gained popularity abroad: noble guests from Paris, Vienna, Italy on the way to the Royal court specially came to Kiev to eat dry jam.
The brand store of sweets Balabukh opened in 1834 in his own house, overlooking the crowded St. Andrew's street. The entrepreneur bought the hem of the estate and garden in non-residential buildings in the adjacent territory have arranged workshops for the production of jam.
Unfortunately, by order of the Bolsheviks who came to power, the private business of the Balabukh family was liquidated, and the recipe of Kiev dry jam was lost and forgotten. Today we would like to tell you about it, because the sweetness invented by Balabukh is worthy not only of memory, but also of constant admiration!
