Conserve -

A word often used as of the same meaning as "preserves," but really a term of pharmacy or of candy making. Conserves are fresh flowers, fruits, roots, etc., preserved by beating with powdered sugar to the consistence of stiff paste, the object being to retain as much as possible of the natural properties of the raw fruit, etc. The conserves of the candy maker are made for consumption as sweetmeats; those of the druggist are frequently employed as a vehicle for medicines. To the working confectioner, the term "conserves" means sugar and added ingredients so cooked as not to produce a "grainy" effect.
