Along with dried fruit, fruit in syrup is a way of preserving fruit for the winter. Often used for desserts or simply as a dessert, fruit in syrup is easy to make and requires virtually no investment. What you need are water, sugar, herbs, cooking equipment and jars. Sterilised or not, you can preserve the fruit in a jar throughout the year.
Georgia has many fruit trees of all kinds. So there are a lot of fruits that can't be eaten right away, so it has to be preserved. Every family with a garden has fruit trees and produces fruit in syrup.
Small industries specialising in food preservation also produce fruit in syrup, the kind you find on supermarket shelves.
